Watch this video to learn how to create and shape the Botanic Orchid flowers.

Instructions: The Finished card measures 7" x 5". Cut a card base in white card stock 7" x 10" and score at 5" on the long side. Fold and burnish well. To make the mat layer, cut a white card stock 4 3/4" x 6 3/4" and distress the edges with a paper distresser. Distress the Edges with Distress inks. Cut a pattern paper in light green from the Botanic Orchid paper pad to a size a little smaller than mat layer. Emboss the paper with woodgrain texture embossing folder and apply distress ink Espresso on top with a very light hand. Cut the patterned paper in 1.2" strips. Adhere on black cardstock with 1/8" gap between each strip. Distress the edges and shred with a paper distresser. Adhere onto the white mat layer. Roughly tear a corrugated strip and distress it well with a blend of distress inks. Spray with water for ink to blend. Add dots of gesso with a splatter brush.

Cut two die cuts in white cardstock from the Window die and stick to each other. Apply the blue and green memento ink and sprinkle a little gold embossing powder randomly. Heat set the die cut. The round frame is actually a finished tape roll. Apply Sand paste all over and let it dry. Brush well with Distress inks and spray water to blend colours. Adhere the Window die cut to the round frame and cut the extra edges.

Create a scene using artificial nest, twigs and classic leaf die cuts. Stamp the Hummingbird three times and paint two of them with Zig brush pens, and colour the third in black. This is the base layer. Create a 3D image of bird using the other two coloured die cuts. Adhere near the nest.

To create Daffodils with Orchid die, stamp the orchid flower stamp 6 times with Versamark Embossing pad and add white Embossing powder. Colour the petals with Cantaloupe Memento Ink and the centres with Tangelo Ink. Spray water very well and crinkle the edges of the broad petals and cup them very deeply. Form a cup shape with two such center shapes. Put one cup inside another and adhere. Prick a hole in the centre. Cut out the petals with the coordinating die and shape on the Deluxe flower shaping tool. One flower requires two back petals and four center petals. Add a pollen with prills. Arrange the flowers onto the card front as shown. Add a sentiment from the Paper pad.
