Instructions

The finished card measures 7" x 5"
Cut a white cardstock measuring 10" x 7" and score at 5" and fold to make the card base. For the mat layers , cut a piece of pattern paper 4 3/4" x 6 3/4" from the Botanic Orchid Paper pad. Distress the edges with Rangers paper distresser. Cut the second mat layer in shade of green from the same paper pad a size smaller than the first mat layer. Distress and tear the edges as shown. Stick the two mat layers together on the card front. Cut a strip of paper with very light print from the pattern paper pad and tear the edges roughly from both sides. Add some texture with stencil and modelling paste. Let it dry. Splatter some drops of black paint.
Stamp out the images from the Botanic Orchid Cling stamp set and colour with copic markers in shades of purple and pink. Cut out the flowers using the Botanic Orchid die. For the main flower , we will need two layers of the three petal shapes fom the largest flower and two three petal shapes from the medium die. Sp
Spritz water on all the layers and pinch between fingers to give a wrinkled look. Layer the two large flowers and then the medium flowers. Then add the center after shaping it on the deluxe flower shaping kit. Add artificial pollens in the center. Make buds with the three petal flowers by squeezing them well to give the shape of buds. Add wire pollens inside them.
Stamp out the humming birds from the Regal Humming Bird cling stamp set. Colour with Zig brush pens and cut with the Regal Humming Bird die. Add on to the card as shown. Arrange the flower and buds with twine, jute net, resin embellishments and ribbon as shown. Add a sentiment from the paper pad.
