Clean and Simple Dahlia Card

Hello stampers! 

Now that all the excitement of graduation and the end of the school year has passed, we are we are finally settling into a more relaxed Summer schedule. In other words, this Momma has some breathing space! And that means creating time! 
Can I get an Amen?!

The day of graduation I received two boxes of all NEW Stampin' Up! goodies: 

It was the saddest sight. 
Two unopened boxes of wonderful new crafting toys...
But, family first and all. Blah, blah, blah. LOL!

When I did get time to open them and play, I chose to start with something clean and simple to get the creative juices flowing: 

There is so much to love about this project I'm not sure where to begin - 
The NEW Thick Whisper White card stock is AWESOME for card bases and it takes our ink beautifully!

This Definitely Dahlia stamp image is STUNNING! 
And the NEW In Colors Striped Cotton Ribbon is the perfect touch between classic and rustic - I am in LOVE. 

There is nothing complicated about this card - just one tip to share - I stamped a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock with the Dahlia image after I'd stamped the card base and I love the paler version of the Mint Macaron ink for a background. Simple and elegant. 
I'll also share that this ink looks darker when it's wet, so don't panic if it looks too dark, you'll love the color once it dries and sinks into the card stock, I promise!

Here's the products I used to create this project:
