Orchids are such beautiful and elegant flowers. So I was super excited to see the Climbing Orchid Stamp Set in the new Stampin’ Up! catalog! It was definitely top on my wish list! This set provides a unique ability to build up the orchids with as many or as few layers as you like. And when you combine the orchids with new Wood Textures Designer Series Paper you have an elegant yet rustic look.
My daughter, Tiffany, actually came up with this design. We used it to create a variety of invitations for my future daughter-in-law’s upcoming bridal shower. My son and his fiance chose a rustic theme for their wedding so this set was perfect for creating their bridal shower invites! Of course, I loved my daughter’s design so much that I just had to recreate it! The Orchid Builder Bundle makes it easy to create beautiful cards like this! I used Very Vanilla for the base of the card. Cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of one of the wood texture DSP patterns. There are a variety of different wood patterns in the DSP pack so play around with it and choose the pattern that you like best. Stamp some orchids on a scrap piece of very vanilla cardstock and cut them out. You can layer the orchids as much as you like! For this card I just used two layers…the flower and the yellow middle. Stamp the stems on your card and add the flowers. I also did a little heat embossing, with white embossing powder, for the sentiment. Then embellish as desired! You will love it!
