Trying new things

I tried some new things this week on my 2sketches4you card. This is Kazan's sketch 17



Here is my card:



I used my new cuttlebug embossing folder in my new Big Shot. I am so in love with this machine and these folders. And I have more embossing folders on the way to me! So you'll be seeing more cards with embossing from me in the future. The other new technique is the dahlia flower. It was new to me because I have never tried it. I wasn't happy with the whole flower once I was done (your folding needs to be pretty precise) so I made a bud out of three of the sections. You can see a tutorial for this technique HERE.

A close up of the flower.

Paper: Daisy Bucket Designs
Stamp: Inkadinkado
Tools: Cuttlebug D'vine swirls embossing folder, scallop punch
