Oriental Orchid – Video!

by Therese Calvird

Hi it's Therese and I have a great tip for you today, how you can create the most amazing and beautiful cards really quickly.

Stamping out lots of layered flowers and using the matching dies, you can always have beautiful flowers like these Oriental Orchids ‘ready to go', for that important card that you just don't have time to make.

Once the Oriental Orchids were stamped and die cut this card came together very quickly.  Initially I was going to keep the background all white but once I sat the angled coloured cardstock beneath I just had to go with it.

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.

Therese, Each video you make teaches me a new and unique way to make a card. This card is beautiful. I am so enchanted by your technique that I’m going to try this.

Beautiful card and love those colors! Great tip, I do this often (especially with layered images) and it does help with creativity in a pinch. I have a bureau drawer of precolor/stamped/die cut items. I am slowly moving them into their stamps storage cases so I can find them more easily. Thank you for the clever use of color blocking behind the raised panels, it brought the flowers to life.
