Heartfelt Creations Botanic Orchid Luminary

Today is new release day at Heartfelt Creations and we have a beautiful collection to share with you called Botanic Orchid.  I have made a Luminary for you today.  I began with two pieces of Aquamarine Stardreams metallic card stock.  The first is  7 1/2" x 11"; score this vertically at 1/2", 5 1/2" and 10 1/2" then score horizontally at 1".  The second is 7 1/2" x 10"; score this vertically at 5" then score horizontally at 1".   Cut between the bottom and side flaps and create notches as shown in the picture below.

Using the center die from the Botanic Window Craft die, cut window openings in each of the panels.  Using the outer two dies from the set and Curious Cryogen metallic card stock, cut 4 frames for the windows.  Using Designer Dries Clear Adhesive attach each of the frames.

Here you can see I have added my stamped and die cut images and attached the two panels together.  Attach the last flap to create a 4 sided box.  Add a base piece of card stock 5" square on the bottom outside; adding another base piece 4 7/8" square to the inside for extra support. 

Once assembled, add borders along the top using one of the die cuts from the Border Essentials die set.

This side uses the hummingbird from the Botanic Orchid Bouquet Stamp set and matching dies.  I have colored him with my Copic markers and added yellow glitter glue to the flower center.  I will list the Copics I used at the end of my post.

For this side I have used the beautiful orchid stem, also from the Botanic Orchid Bouquet Stamp set and matching dies.

 Here I have used the Regal Hummingbird Cling Stamp set and matching dies.  I had so much fun coloring these fabulous stamped images.

The last side uses a hummingbird from the Regal Hummingbird Cling Stamp set and matching die.  The floral spray from is from the Botanic Orchid Wishes Cling Stamp and uses the matching die from the Botanic Orchid Bouquet Craft Dies.
