Orchid Stem


Hello everyone we have had such crazy weather lately, first 6" of snow, then heavy rains with wind. Finally a couple of dry days.  I spent my time indoors making this design.  The Orchids are time consuming but worth the time.  I first die cut all the pieces, the darker orchids are from card stock called Sunflower.  The other one is light yellow.  For the stems I just die cut the flowers in green and cut them apart and glued to them to the stem. Even through I used Wink of Stella the picture does not show the wonderful sparkles.

Materials:
My Favorite Things - Lily
Wink of Stella
Card stock - Sunflower, Light Yellow, Black, White and Purple

  4. Such a pretty card Diane, I love the yellows, it reminds me of spring and the orchids look so beautiful against the pink. We are having such bizarre weather here, at the moment the temperatures are like spring, I bet that won't last.

  5. Hi Diane,
    This card is lovely! I love the orchids, and the very cheerful colors! Spring seems so far off with all the recent snow! So I enjoyed this splash of color!
