Regarding Dahlias Retiring Card

Two of my favorite products hit the 2015 Retiring List this year, so help me mourn their loss I decided to share a simple thank you card!
Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral go beautifully together, add some Whisper White and you have a winning combination!

So here's the paper you'll need for this project:

Bermuda Bay Card Stock: 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4
4" X 5 1/4"
Whisper White: 3 7/8" X 5 1/8" 
4" X 5 1/4" (inside piece)
1/2" X 4"
Calypso Coral: 5/8" X 4"

Start by cutting out the Window Frame Framelit in the center of your Bermuda Bay piece.  I used the 3rd from the largest.  Then run that piece through the Big Shot with the Spring Flowers EF.
Stamp the dahlia in Calypso Coral ink in the center of your 3 7/8" X  5 1/8" piece of Whisper White.
Stamp your sentiment on your small piece of Whisper White with Bermuda Bay ink.  Pennant both ends with the Banner Punch or with your Paper Snips.  Pennant one end of your Calypso Coral card stock as well.  Layer the sentiment piece on with SNAIL adhesive.  
On the back of your embossed and die cut piece of Bermuda Bay, place Dimensionals all over the back.  Be generous here, you don't want your card to fall flat.  Place it over the Whisper White piece being sure not to let any white card stock to peek out from behind the Bermuda Bay.  Tie a small piece of ribbon around one side of the frame.  Use adhesive to attach this piece to the card.   Now place one Dimensional on the pennant'd end of your sentiment piece.  Place adhesive on the rest and place it on your card. 
That's it!  It's ready to send!
