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

Instructions: Cut a mini print from the paper collection. Cut a 6" x 12" strip of cardstock. From the mini print, fussy cut along the design at the bottom. Adhere this to one end of the cardstock strip, with the fussy cut edge facing the open edge. Trim the cardstock to match the cut edge. Score and fold along the straight edge. Trim a straight edge along the remaining section of the mini print. Score and fold the cardstock so that when folded, the bottom edge will tuck under the fussy cut edge from the first piece. Adhere the remaining mini print to this flap. Trim away any left over cardstock. Apply a strip of adhesive in the inside fold of the bottom flap, so that the top of it remains open. Once dry, tuck the top flap into this smaller flap, creating a matchbox style card.

Stamp the sentiment to the main face of the card, and colour with watercolour pencils and a water brush. Stamp and die cut a Botanic Orchid Bouquet image. Colour with distress inks. Shape the back with a stylus, then adhere to the left side of the card. Stamp and die cut a set of Botanic Orchid petals. Ink with distress inks, and shape with a stylus. Assemble the flowers and adhere over the stamped image on the left. Adhere mini prills to the middle of the stamped flowers in the sentiment.
