All the decorative elements from this card come from Crafter's Companion.
First I assembled the card as per instructions and started decorating the front. I stamped the dahlia in each corner and in the centre using black ink. I then masked these off and stamped additional flowers in purple ink, masking each time I stamped a new image, until the front of the card was covered. I printed a sentiment, cut it in half and glued to the centre of the card.
Opening up to the next 'page' I used flower patterned paper in the central squares and added a sentiment and an image to the centre of these. I then stamped and masked with the dahlia stamp along the edges.
The next 'page' already had stamped images, so I continued this around the edge of the cross-shape and added a sentiment in the centre, cutting it in half as before.
For the last 'page', which becomes the back of the card, I simply stamped the dahlia as for the front but didn't add any images or sentiments.
I have created this card for two challenges:
1. My Time To Craft: #228 Masking
2. Allsorts Challenge Blog: Week 214 - Favourite Things - my favourite things are stamping and flowers
