First, I stamped the Dahlia onto some Brusho backgrounds. I was able to stamp one and a half flowers on each background, the colors were Yellow Ochre, Rose Red and Terra-cotta. I trimmed these out.
Then, I used a sheet of cardstock 5.25 inches by 8.5 inches, marking the halfway point with a pencil line.
I dry fit my flowers in a way I thought might look good.
I also used a sheet of paper to look how each half of the card looked on its own.
Then I glued down all the flowers and cut the panel in half. My guillotine trimmer cut through all the layers easily.
I finished the cards off with a heat embossed sentiment from the same set on a die cut label. I also added some black Nuvo drops. I could have used the background in any orientation, but I kept them the same as they were originally. (You might have noticed, on the left card, I added an extra little scrap of a flower to fill it out.)
I also wanted to show you how I finished off the inside of the Thinking of You card with the Memories Comforts You stamp. This is my favorite sympathy sentiment.
