One of the first stamps I wanted for this year's catalog was Climbing Orchids(143723), with the Orchid Builder Framelits(143747). Bundled(145334) you save 10%.
The card base is Thick Whisper White(140272). Layered Flirty Flamingo(141416) and Whisper White(100730) Cardstock. On the Whisper White Layer, I used Embossing Paste(141979) with the brick mask from Pattern Party Decorative Masks(144130). This was my first time using Embossing Paste and I love how easy it is to use and how nice of a background it makes.
I did use a scrap of Lemon Lime Twist(144245) for the stem. The stem is the branch from Seasonal Layers Thinlits(143751).
I stamped Orchid petals with Flirty Flamingo Ink(141397) on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. The centers were stamped with So Saffron (126957) and Flirty Flamingo inks. After cutting the images out I curled the edges of the petals putting each flower together with Mini Glue Dots(103683), I popped the images up with Dimensionals(104430).
I left it without a sentiment because I figured I could choose one for the inside when I was ready to give it someone.
