Hero Arts Orchid Branches Red

3 Comments

Hello everyone,

 

It’s Cindy.  I use this month’s challenge theme: Any Shade of Red as my inspiration of today’s card.  It’s a fairly simple card, except I use partial die cutting to add dimension.  You could consider it a one layer card with an attitude!  😀

My process:

  • On white card stock, ink and stamp the orchid branch from Hero Arts Color Layering Orchid in a Pot set in a pleasing composition in various shades of Red.
  • Stamp sentiment in black.
  • Distress with Spun Sugar all around.
  • Use matching frame cut and partial die cut at various length of the branches.
  • Layer and adhere red color paper on card base.
  • Add foam adhesive behind partial die cut branches with various thickness, the most thick at the tip of the branch, less closer to the base.
  • Adhere orchid panel to card.  Remove backing of foam tape from branches and adhere to card.  Slightly curl the flower petal to create more dimension.

Here’s a closer look.

  2. Cindy, this is amazing! Love the “attitude” of your card. Great colors & composition. I have a hard time knowing what to do with this stamp set, so I’m definitely pinning this for future inspiration. Tfs! 🙂 ~ Andrea
