Climbing Orchid stamp set from Stampin' Up!

With the excitement of sale-a-bration it's easy to forget products in our annual catalogue.
'Climbing Orchid' is such an elegant stamp set, it doesn't need a lot of anything else to make a pretty card. 

I've made 2 versions, each one using a different pattern of the larger flower head stamps and then a smaller leaf stamp.

Colour combinations are a lovely soft look with 'Soft Sea Foam' and one of my old favourites 'Mint Macaron'
A brighter burst of colour comes from 'Poppy Parade' and 'Granny Apple Green'

Stamping randomly with the flower head and leaf i created a pretty background.
Carefully laying the 'Large Letter' framelits across the top i ran it through the 'Big Shot' until i had the word MUM. The magnetic plate is great for things like this, helping keep the framelits just where you want them. The cut out letters are popped back in but on dimensionals so they stand out.

''Teeny Tiny Sentiments' provided the Happy Mothers day and i used the classic label punch to cut out and then the same in matching cardstock. The cardstock label i set off at an angle on one and slightly above the sentiment on the other just to give that flash of colour. 

I really like how these cards turned out, swapping the sentiment would make them great for a lot of other occasions.
