Want to send a show-stopping card? Then you need the Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set!
With hyper-realistic designs of beautiful dahlia florals, this card is sure to wow. You can center the dahlia image as the main focal point for increased impact or place it off to the side to frame one of many versatile sentiments included in this set.
The included outline floral designs also allow you to explore all the coloring techniques your heart desires. This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set; it allows you to layer two or more images to create one final image with extra texture and dimension in the colors you want.
For this card, I wanted to go with soft colors so here’s the Color Palette I used:
