Project Instructions

Set up invitation information in desired font and print on 3¼"x5" vellum panels.

Emboss Dahlia in Pearl Carnelian Powder with VersaMark™ ink on the edges of the vellum sheets.

Attach vellum sheets to same sized panels of white cardstock for support by punching 1/16" holes in all four corners and affixing copper mini-brads.

Create card base by folding a 4¼"x11" panel of metallic copper cardstock in half to create top folded card.

Score front panel of card 2½" down from the fold.

Emboss Dahlias in Pearl Champagne embossing powder and VersaMark™ ink on front of card as a background, plus one whole dahlia on a separate panel of cardstock.

Cut out separate Dahlia and cut in half. Reserve one half for another card.

Glue ½ Dahlia to the inside back portion of card, lining up bottom edge of card with cut edge of flower. Only apply adhesive to the bottom ½" of flower. When dry, bend flower slightly to allow folded front of card to slide behind flower.

Glue layered white invitation panel to front of card ONLY, below the score line.
