Hello, my friends. This card was inspired by a card I saw on Papercraft inspirations magazine and was made using the free stamps that came with it.
I must confess that I love orchids and I find the flowers fascinating. Back to the card. I stamped 3 outline orchids in watering can archival ink and then added 3 leaves and buds.
I stamped 3 more orchids on a separate piece of card. I filled in the colour using the solid stamp and second generation love letter memento ink. The inner darker colour was stamped in 1st generation love letter ink.
I painted the buds with the same ink and a damp brush and for the leaves, I used ivy cottage ink.
I fussy cut the 3 flowers and overlayed onto the card to give a bit of dimension.
As for the sentiment, I used Sue Wilson Happy Birthday dies. The birthday is die cut directly onto the white card so that the base colour peeps through. The happy is done on kraft card so the white peeps through. I used kraft card for the base and added some pearls to finish off.
I must say I really like the way this card turned out, what do you think? Hugs, Theresa xx
