shaker window flower card

Welcome to a fun blog hop! Today I am sharing a Dahlia shaker card using the new Build-A-Flower set by Altenew. This is part of a blog hop with lots of inspiration and giveaways.

The new stamp set features two lovely dahlia flowers and leaves. I also comes with sentiments and matching dies, so you have everything you need to make lovely cards. This is a layering stamp set and remember that you can get many different looks not only by changing the colors but also by omitting layers. Plus you can just use the outline and coloring it in with your markers or any other medium.
