Beautiful Orchid

Happy Friday everyone!  It's Jeanne posting today.  We have a number of sales going on in the store today!  Including a look at our new release which is Just for Guys!!! Which is also on sale for 25% off!  So please check out the online sales!

My card today features the gorgeous orchid die from the Mother's Day release.
I saw this layout in a card making book and thought it went well with the die.  I first picked out the paper - I wanted it to coordinate with what I think of as "traditional" orchid colors.
I cut an A2 card base, six strips of patterned paper 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches, a rectangle using the third largest die from the Double Stitched Rectangle set and one slightly larger.    I glued the stitched rectangle to the larger one.
I laid out the strips alternating their angle then glued the rectangle on top.
Next I cut all the pieces for the orchid from white card stock.

I used alcohol markers to color in the pieces.
Finally I added the word "Beautiful" cut using the Beautiful Phrase die (sorry I forgot to take a colse up of the die cut).
This is a very versatile card that could be used for a number of occasions.

 Thanks for stopping by today - have a great weekend.  I hope you find the time to do something creative!
