Again I used one of the old Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenges for my layout.
This is the card I created using that layout as a guide.
Orchids are such delicate-looking flowers, so I wanted my card to show that. I took some vellum and colored it with a pink Copic marker before I cut the flowers.
Then I cut out the flower petals. I decided that one layer of the orchids needed to be darker, as shown in the packaging, so I colored them with a darker pink. The rest of the pieces I cut from white cardstock.
I cut my cardstock and patterned paper as follows:
White cardstock for base - 8 1/2" x 11"
Pink cardstock - 4" x 5 1/4", 3 1/4" x 3 1/4", 3" x 4"
Patterned paper - 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
Using the 2nd largest Double-stitched Square die and the 2nd largest Double-stitched Rectangle die, I cut two smaller white panels.
Using the sketch challenge layout, I constructed my card base.
I then cut the Mom sentiment from pink cardstock using another one of the new dies.
I glued the sentiment at the corner where the star appears in the sketch and popped up the orchid with foam pop dots. I added a few soft green enamel dot stickers, and I was done.
