As you are ready to stamp using the Delicate Dahlias Set, place the cardstock on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp. Put a piece of Grid Paper on top of the Mat to protect it from ink.
Mount the large, outline dahlia flower image from the Delicate Dahlias Set on Block E. Ink it up using the Pale Papaya Ink Pad. Stamp it a few times on the 4" x 5-1/4" white rectangle remembering to re-ink the stamp each time. Alter the orientation of the stamp and let some of the images go off the edges of the cardstock. Leave the stamp on the block.
Re-ink the large, outline dahlia flower image on Block E using the Pale Papaya Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the white square. Clean the stamp using the Stampin' Scrub and Stampin' Mist Stamp Cleaner and/or Simply Shammy, but leave it on the block.
Re-ink the large, outline dahlia flower image on Block E using the Calypso Coral Ink Pad. Stamp it a few times on the previously stamped large white rectangle filling in the spaces. Remember to re-ink the stamp each time. Alter the orientation of the stamp, let the images go off the edges a bit, and let the images overlap the previously stamped images. Clean the stamp and put it away.
Adhere the stamped white rectangle to the large Calypso Coral rectangle.
Cut a 4-1/2" piece of the Pale Papaya & White 1/2" Ribbon.
Lay the ribbon across the vertical, stamped and layered white/Calypso Coral rectangle so it is about 1-1/2" from the bottom. Flip the rectangle over and secure the ends of the ribbon in place with small strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backings from the Tear & Tape and add more adhesive to the back of the Calypso Coral rectangle. Adhere it to the front of the Pale Papaya card.
Pick out the smooth circle die from the Layering Circles Dies that cuts out a smooth circle that is 2-5/8" diameter. Put it on top of the stamped dahlia on the white square on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the dahlia is mostly centered in the die. Run through the machine.
Pick out the scalloped circle die from the Layering Circles Dies that cuts out a scalloped circle that is 2-7/8" diameter. Put it on top of the Calypso Coral square on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Run through the machine.
Adhere the dahlia circle cut out to the center of the scalloped Calypso Coral circle cut out.
Adhere the matted dahlia circle to the front of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals so it is centered over the ribbon on the right side.
Peel the protective backing off of the Adhesive Sheets rectangle. Adhere the Adhesive Sheets rectangle to the back side (the non-glittery side) of the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper rectangle. Be sure to leave the other protective backing in place for now.
Pick out the "happy" die from the Word Wishes Dies. Put it on top of the specialty paper rectangle on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the glittery side is facing up. Run through the machine a few times. Use the paper-piercing tip and the Die Brush Tip on the Take Your Pick to remove the pieces. Make sure the protective backing for the Adhesive Sheet stays in place for now.
Peel off the protective backing on the back of the "happy" word cut out. Adhere the word to the layered dahlia flower circle cut out so it is centered just below the center of the flower.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up a small Calypso Coral sequin from a sheet of Artistry Blooms Sequins making sure that you get the adhesive backing as well. Adhere it to the center of the flower on the layered circle cut out.
Cut a 4" piece of the Pale Papaya & White 1/2" Ribbon.
Tie a half knot in the center of the ribbon. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon knot to the front of the card so it is centered over the ribbon already on the card on the left side of the layered circle cut out.
