Instructions: Make a 6" X 6" card base of Kraft cardstock. Cut a gold mirror paper mat 5 3/4" X 5 3/4", glue to card front. Cut a dark brown mat 5 1/2" X 5 1/2", glue to gold mat. Using the small orchid flourish, stamp center of brown mat with Versamark, dust with gold embossing powder & heat set. Cut an off-white piece of the paper pad 5 1/4" X 5 1/4". With the second largest circle die cut a circle in the center of this piece. Stamp the sentiment in the right corner, & random small Orchid flourishes around edges, using the Jumbo Java ink. Glue the shaker pocket to the center circle from the back and then glue gold trim around edges. Add glue to the small buds on the stamped flourishes and sprinkle them with "Third Place" Prills and set this piece aside to dry.
Die cut three small flourishes from gold mirror paper and clip out orchid centers so you will have six pieces. Stamp six or seven leaves with Distress ink, die cut and color them with YG67, & 63. Mist a sponge with water and dip into stamp paint & coat leaves. Stamp two medium and four small orchids on Kraft paper with Versamark, dust with ivory embossing powder and heat set. Color center pieces with E23 and color larger petal centers with E21. Follow video listed about to shape flowers & glue "Third Place" Prills to centers. Take about a teaspoon of each color sequins and pile on center of brown mat. Peel off rim of shaker pocket mat to expose sticky backing. Add glue to edges of this piece and glue in place over brown mat. Be careful not to move the sequins. Using photo as a guideline attach orchids around shaker pocket with glue & pop-dots as needed. Glue in gold flourishes and leaves to complete your card.
