Color Spotlight Card
I happened to get my Logee’s catalog at the same time as this Build-a-Flower: Laelia (ALT) layering stamp set. On the cover of this catalog was the Lc Orchid Fire Island ‘Fiery’ HCC/AOS (Laelia x Cattleya hybrid). I wanted to bring this intense orange bloom with beautifully red lips onto my card project.
I started stamping a draft layer of all the floral elements included in the layering stamp set. I stamped these images with Warm Grey Mini Ink Cube Set (ALT) then die cut the images. This gave me an idea of how to arrange my layers for the more intense colored layers.
After layering the main focal and colorful Laelia, I die cut the cluster and trimmed the image to suit my arrangement. I used the Tropical Forest Mini Cube Set (ALT) for the leaves and stem. The flower consisted of a mix between Warm & Cozy (ALT) and Red Cosmos Mini Cube Set (ALT). I added splatters on top of a panel of Woodgrain White Cardstock (ALT).
