Orchid Card - CASE Study #56 & Flourishes Fall Fashion Challenge

I created this birthday card using the CASE Study #56 challenge and colours from the Flourishes Fall Fashion Challenge. I love this 'Orchids' stamp set from Flourishes. I used a couple of techniques posted on their site - check out the tutorial "Out of the Box" by Iwona Palmountain to learn how to extend part of your image beyond the edge of a Spellbinders die and the tutorial "Adding Dimension" by Dina Kowal to pop some of your stamped image. Love how these turned out.

Supplies - Card size is 6 1/2" x 4 3/4"

Paper - Designer Paper - English Rose Collection (Kaisercraft), Mistletoe (CTMH), White Daisy, New England Ivy and Bamboo CS (CTMH), Neena Classic Crest Solar White CS
Stamps - Orchids (Flourishes), Happy Birthday (CTMH)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Gypsy (CTMH), Copics
Accessories - 1/2" pleated white satin ribbon, 1" crocheted ribbon, 1/2" seam binding - dyed with Gypsy reinker (all May Arts), Bling Assortment, Bamboo Waxy Flax (CTMH)
Other - Spellbinders - Plain Oval Large and Small, Labels 4, 3D foam
