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

Instructions: For the card base I used 9" x 8" smooth white cardstock. Score at 4 1/2" on the 9" side and create a top fold card of 4 1/2" by 8". Create a black mat 1/2" smaller to the card base. You will need another mat, 1/8" smaller to black, this time from the designer paper. Since my flowers were in the shades of orange, I preferred choosing the same from Sunrise Lily Paper Collection. Distress the edges on all four sides using scissors or distress tool. Give a washed coat of gesso randomly, little stenciling using modeling paste and dust the entire piece with sparkles/ glitters. Mat all the layers using foam dots.

For flowers follow Emma Lou's video using white cardstock and stamping with Potting Soil Ink. Color with Pumpkin Spice and Lipstick Red Inks. The leaves are stamped with Archival, library green using Open leaf stamp set and die cut using its coordinating die, colored using color box inks and shaped using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. The hummingbird is from Regal Hummingbird Cling Stamp Set, painted using Zig Clean Clear Markers and die cut using its coordinating die. The chip board from Dusty Attics is painted using white paint and sprinkled with clear glitter. I matted a designer from the same collection in the open space of chipboard. Layer the white die cut on right side of the ready card base and arrange all the elements as shown. I added small tulles of white net and a bow using matching twine to add an extra interest. The Sentiment is from - You Inspire Me Stamp Set.
