Instructions: Find both sheets of the yellow patterned paper with the red/orange flower borders. This is your background. Fussy cut the decorative border from one of the patterns. Adhere it back to the full patterned sheet using foam tape. Also, fussy cut the bottom lacy border from the 2nd background. Set aside for now. Cut 2 strips of the red patterned paper that are 1.5 x 12” and tear one edge of each. Adhere layered to the bottom of the layout. Then using foam squares, add the fussy cut lacy strip back to the bottom of the layout.
Die cut one of the Decorative Circle Frame Die from white cardstock. Die cut the green patterned circle using one of the Large Circle Dies. Adhere these layers together, then snip in half, making one side just slightly larger than the other. Set aside for now. Mat the 4 x 6” photo in white cardstock and add white photo corners for a little pizzazz. Adhere to the left of centre of the layout using foam tape. Now, add the smaller half of the die cut circle piece using foam squares to the left of the matted photo, and the other to the right. Find and cut out the small yellow journal block and adhere below the matted photo using foam squares.
Stamp and die cut 4 of each size of the Dahlia using brown ink (StazOn- Timber Brown), onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Stamp and die cut 3 large and 2 small leaves using the same brown ink, onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Add color to the middle of the flowers using yellow ink (Distress Oxide- Fossilized Amber) and daubers. Add orange ink (Distress Oxide- Spiced Marmalade) to the tips of the petals using daubers. Then finally add red ink (Distress Oxide- Candied Apple) to just the tips of all of the petals. Add green ink (Archival- Olive) to the leaves using daubers. Shape the flowers and leaves using the 3D Dahlia Shaping Mold. Assemble the flowers in 2 sizes and add Prills to the middle of each using a liquid adhesive.
Add the 2 larger flowers to the left and right of the matted photo, then add the large leaves around them. Add the smaller flower to the bottom of the layout and add the small leaves around it. Add a few buttons around the flowers.
