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

Instructions: Cut a strip of cardstock 12" x 6". Cut a square panel from patterned paper. Fussy cut along the left border section. Adhere to one end of the cardstock strip with the fussy cut edge facing out. Score and fold along the straight edge. Take the other side of the square panel and arrange so that the two pieces match up. Use this to gauge where to fold the remainder of the white strip. Adhere the panel to the front. Die cut a Stately Circle shape from white cardstock, and adhere to the right side of the front panel only. Cut a circular image from patterned paper and adhere to the centre using foam dots. Cut a sentiment strip from patterned paper and adhere across the middle of the card and onto the circular element. Stamp two floral images from the Regal Hummingbird set. Colour with watercolour pencils and die cut. Cut each one in half. Stamp two sets of orchid petals. Colour with distress inks then die cut, and shape with a stylus. Assemble the flowers. Arrange the floral stamped images and the flowers around the right edge of the circular element. Apply paint dots around the edge of the circle die cut. Apply glitter to the small details of the card using a fine metal tip, then sprinkle with fine glitter.
