Of Orchids

I'm no flower expert, and I always think that my flowers are the roughest paper flowers ever made (zoom up and you'll see every crooked detail there is).


Making this was a challenge on its own. I'm not into the conventional feminine colours for mothers/ women like pink, purple, peach, red etc, and I wanted to portray that subdued, poised card befitting a great mother. So I ended up with this.


It's a bit on the retro side, with a dash of graceful femininity. I love the quilled orchids the most, because it took a while (and a bit of research) to come up with the end design. I sure hope they look like vanilla orchids.


Have I told you that the best cards I think I've made are all for moms? :)

  8. You are so creative and skillful. Your cards are really an inspiration. I had a question about the box/envelope. Did you make it ? Can you please share how you did it ? Is it good enough to post the delicate card ?
