Stampin' Up! Climbing Orchids Cards

Jillian Selwood, Purple Jelly Designs, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

Earlier this year I entered the Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge with this card, to see the original post click here

I loved the card so much I decided to make it again but I wanted the orchids to stand out more.

To do this I stamped the flowers on a scrap of Whisper White and die cut the three parts before adhering together. I then curled the petals before adhering to the square.

I used the same Layered Leaves 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder as I thought that worked perfectly.

Then I tried to heat embossed the orchids and wondered what it would look like if I dry embossed a sheet of silver foil. I was rather pleased with the result although my husband thought it was too much.

A crafting friend of mine recently promoted to Silver so I thought this card was perfect to send her as a congratulations card.
