You will need:
Die, circle
Cardstock: white, green
Linen paper
Brush pen, peach
Paint brush
Pearl gems
Adhesives: 3D foam pads, glue
Die-cutting machine

1. Print out our template onto white card, then score, fold and trim. Place an 8cm circle die in the centre and run it through a die-cutting machine to create an aperture. Stick a green square of card in the centre, then glue the small tabs to create a box.

2. Print out the large orchid template and cut from linen paper. Scribble a peach brush pen onto an acrylic stamping block or piece of acetate. Take a water brush pen or paintbrush, dip in water and pick up a little colour. Apply loosely to the orchid. Once dry, add some tiny dots to the centre with the pen. Layer up the petals using 3D foam pads and fix inside the aperture. Add pearl gems, a sentiment along the top edge and another sentiment to the front.
