Altenew Build-A-Flower: Cattleya. Cards by Svitlana Shayevich

Hello there!

Today is Altenew Build-A-Flower product of the month mini-release. This month it’s Build-A-Flower: Cattleya.

I made two very simple cards using this set. Both have a similar design. Plain card base made out of a Parchment Cardstock with random splatters of the Pure White Ink Spray, white embossed sentiment and colorful Cattleya Orchid as the main element. Snow crystals also as finishing touches.

The first card is extremely simple. I stamped one Cattleya Pick using Sea Breeze, Turquoise and Tide Blue Inks for flowers, Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen for leaves.

Next it was die-cut using the matching die and adhered onto the card base across its width.

The second card is a bit more complicated. Simply because I had to stamp tree picks and then assemble them on a card.

Two elements were stamped using Parrot, Olive and Moss Inks (for the flower parts, leaves were stamped using the same colors as in the previous card).

One cattleya, which I placed on the very top, I made a bit lighter by stamping it with BambooParrot and Olive Inks.

I adhered two picks (one darker and the lighter one) onto the card. Then I cut another darker cattleya into pieces and used them to fill up the design.

The cards turned out to be very simple, but I really like this simplicity. And I really like the neutral palette with some pop of bright color.

UPDATED – VIDEO

I filmed a video for the second card, but never was able to finish editing it on time. So initially I thought I would simply discard it. As I did for several videos in the past which never made it into the dedicated blog posts. But this time I decided to push through and finish this one. A week later is better than never ;)

    See, to me, this is how to show off the new images!! Different colors than what the set comes with and shading even with the same inks to have darker and lighter versions! Really showcases the Cattleya orchids in their natural colors with the Parrot greens especially! Gorgeous cards!

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen the tropical greens as flowers against the green fields colors. I’m surprised at how nicely they work; I would have thought they would clash, but these look amazing. I love this CAS look; it’s so elegant and the parchment cardstock really allows the flowers to shine. Thanks for sharing!

    Svitlana, the Cattleya Orchid is absolutely gorgeous as soon as I saw it I knew that it would be an amazing image on any type of project. Your projects are both fabulous but its the second one which I find so cool, where you have layered the images of this orchid. TFS with us crafters. :O) xx
