Ya Gotta Know When To Fold 'Em . . . Dahlia Fold Card

Know when to hold 'em . . .  know when to walk away . . . know when to run . . . 

Yikes!  Did I just date myself by thinking about that old song?
Well, I'm just lovin' this Dahlia Fold card.  The folding is as easy as can be.  It makes such a pretty card and quickly, too.

  • Punch out eight (8) 1-3/4" circles from designer series paper and then fold each of the circles into quarters.
  • Fold the lower two quarters in a bit at the bottom, using the fold marks as a guide.
  • turn the circle shape over and then fold the petal inward to the center fold line - kinda like a paper airplane and then do the same thing for the other side.
  • Repeat the same steps to create 7 more petals and create a full circle.
  • Try this with several sizes of circle punches to make larger and smaller flowers.
I stamped the Very Vanilla layer with Island Indigo and Riding Hood Red using the Everything Eleanor stamp set.  I'm so glad the Vintage Brads are still available. 
I used:
Riding Hood Red and Island Indigo inks; Fan Fair Designer Series Paper; Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla card stocks; Everything Eleanore stamp set; Antique Brads; Glue Dots; 1-3/4" circle punch; Bone Folder, Snail adhesive.

It's a regular-sized card finishing up at 5-1/2" x 4-1/4".  Whatcha think?  I wanted to give a shout out for the blog where I got this idea, and I cannot seem to locate it.  When I do, I'll update this post.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Hope you know when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em today and every day.
