Black Dahlia card

The challenge this week on StampTV is to make a card that has something to do with a movie, or movie title. I chose The Black Dahlia. I'm not sure if the flower I used is actually a dahlia, but it looked pretty close to me! I am also entering this in the Mod Squad Wheel in the Color challenge.  Here is my finished card.

I wanted to try a folding card and I found this twist fold card. I stamped the flower, coloured it with Spectrum Noir markers and used the coordinating die to cut it out. I stamped the leaves and die cut them. I stamped the sentiment and die cut it with the flower die although it looks smaller than the flower in the picture. 

I scored and folded the base, added the patterned paper and then adhered the flower and sentiment. I just used tape as I thought the card had enough dimension with the twist fold.

The are the supplies I used:

Gina K Designs Birthday Blessings stamp set, Happy Birthday to You stamp set, Coordinating dies, Delicate Essentials patterned paper and Green Grass cardstock

Spectrum Noir markers - True Black, IG5, IG8, IG10, Blender pen

Memento Tuxedo Black and Stampin' Up! Certainly Celery ink

Tombow Mono Adhesive tape


  1. It looks like a dahlia to me. I really like your idea for the card using the products you did. And love the fun fold of it as well.

  2. I would definitely call that a black dahlia. Love the twist fold, wonderful idea. Great take on the challenge, thanks so much for participating this week at the Mod Squad Challenge
