Orange Lilies

This is a card I have made for a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator [hope she likes it!!] I received a swap at Convention with these flowers shaded this way and I love them. The swap card was from Lynda Winfield so thank you Lynda for the inspiration.

The flowers are from the set Fifth Avenue Floral. I stamped them with Chocolate Chip on to Barely Banana cardstock and then using a dauber, sponged them with Tangerine Tango. I then cut them out and layered them on to vellum overlayed Tangerine Tango cardstock. I used the eyelet border punch on the bottom of the two layers and then keeping them together, I ran them through the Cuttlebug polka dots embossing folder.

I punched the bottom of another strip of the Tangerine Tango card and layered it under the top. These layers are then on Kraft and Chocolate Chip cardstock.

Again I have used the wording from the Great Friend set - love it!!

Oh Jean, those Lilies are so wonderful!! I like those in real as well, although I cannot have them in the room because of their smell... getting headaches of it...
By the way... I have a translator on my blog, in the side bar. So you would be able to read what I am writing there :o)
Love and hugs from Switzerland,
