I love orchids and I always have a several in the house. My husband has made it a point to give me one every Mother’s Day because he loves how long the blooms last. Phalaenopsis are the most common and easiest to get to re-bloom, but my favorite is the Cymbidium and I have never gotten that to re-bloom… until now! Haha –– I can make them any color I like, at any time, with dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs!
- I started with a 5×7 black shadow box frame. I wanted my orchid to really pop, so I also started with a black 5×7 base.
- Die cut 5 ‘Welcome’ out of white card stock and adhered them together. Because the orchid is so dimensional, a stacked word die cut works much better for the overall look.
3. Susan has a great video on how to make these orchids, so I won’t go through the process here. To make the buds on the top though, I used the 3 petal die and curled each of the petal. Cut them apart and stack them as seen to make a bud. The top bud uses the 2 petal die cut the same way.
4. After adhering all flower stem and ‘Welcome’ onto the black card stock as shown above, I added some moss to the bottom as most orchid plants will come with a bit of moss on the pot to retain moisture.
I loved how quickly this came together but looks so “put together”. Having it framed inside a shadow box also keeps it safe from dust and will fit on a little nook in the entry way perfectly.
Thanks for stoping by!
