Susan's Garden Cattleya

 Did you ever think you could easily create an orchid out of card stock?  Susan's Garden Cattleya (orchid) dies make this very easy and they are so beautiful.  To learn how to create this flower, you can watch Susan Tierney-Cockburn's Cattleya Video at this link.  I love that Susan has taken the time to create videos for us so we can understand all the steps for creating each of her flowers. 

For the background on this 6x6" card, I used The Crafter's Workshop Mini Leaf Frame Template.  The Savvy "Valentine Heart" was die cut and glued to the center.  The Savvy die cut Cupid was added above the flowers.

 To get started, I die cut all the pieces to create six Cattleya.  Susan explains, in detail,  how to color and shape all the pieces on her video.  I like to have all my flower pieces completed before I start assembly. 

Here is a closeup picture of my Cattleya.

You can purchase your Susan's Garden dies and products from Ellen Hutson, LLC.

Here are links to the products I used:
