Potted Orchid

Potted Orchid

 

Hello my crafty friends!

Today I have a card I created per request of a friend.  Susan’s Garden Notes Phalaenopsis (Moth Orchid) is the flower in Susan’s Garden Notes Potted was used along with Fitted Stitch Frame It Square dies.

Susan has a video on her Facebook page Susan’s Garden Club for the orchid. You can find video here 

6″ X 6″  bright white card blank.

Patterned paper cut to 5-3/4″ X 5-3/4″ die cut square in center.

Burnt Orange cardstock cut 5-1/2″ X 5-1/2″ next smaller square cut in center.  Using clear double sided adhesive attach patterned paper over orange cardstock lining up so it is even all around then adhere to card front using clear double sided adhesive.

Cut 2 pots from cardstock with clear double sided adhesive on back – 1 from gray card stock 1 from white soft finish cardstock. Adhere white on top of gray one.  Using alcohol markers color and shade.  Remove protective backing add couple of dimension squares lower center back.  Bend a little to give curved shape using your fingers then adhere to bottom center of square on card front.

Add buds and flowers using Kids Choice Glue.  Before adding leaves add a little moss to top of pot.

Hope this has given you some inspiration!

Thank you for stopping by my blog and until next time – happy crafting!
