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

Instructions: Cut the pink card stock 4" x 12" and fold in half, this makes your card base 4" x 6". Round all the corners with a corner punch.

With the Botanic Orchid Bouquet Set, stamp the bouquet image, color it in with your markers of choice. I used Copic Markers in shades of pink and green for the leaves. I used stickles to make it sparkle and set it aside for it to dry.

Move on to the Spellbinders Nestabilities die and cut the first 2 of the biggest die, you will use the 6" x 3 3/4" for your card. Next from a piece of Heartfelt designer paper, cut the next size of the die which will give you a solid piece with a little touch of color.

At this time also stamp, color and die cut 2 sets of the Hibiscus flowers, I used the smallest flowers of the set. Put these flowers together, and add a little stickles to make them sparkle.

Stamp, color and die cut the tiny hummingbird border and one of the sitting hummingbirds.

On white card stock stamp the sentiment "Thinking of You" and cut it 2 1/2" x 1 1/2" and layer it on a piece of pink card stock 1/4" bigger then set it aside.

Now, cut a piece of designer paper 3 3/4" X 5 3/4" and round the edges.

Now to start layering all the pieces of paper on the card base, first the designer cut piece of paper, then the Nestabilites die cut pieces but before you adhere the last layer use foam tape, to give it a bit of height and dimension. Next adhere the stamped bouquet in the center of the card and on it, adhere the 2 orchid flowers previously die cut. Add some bling around the bouquet and the hummingbirds.

At the base right beneath the last flower, tuck in the sentiment and add the sitting hummingbird and some pink flat back rhinestones to the upper corners of the card and inside each Orchid flower.
