Here in Denmark, the first bringers of Spring is among Eranthis and Crocus the Snowdrop.
This little white bulb flower usually pops up from the dirt when the sun melts the snow (IF there’s been snow that is) like the other early Spring flowers, but this one really looks like a fairy dress to me. So delicate and beautiful – clearly my favorite!
As I was considering making the Orchid Box Card from Simply Crafty Svgs, I loaded the files into my Silhouette Software and started to organize the parts – as I usually do when starting a new project. That’s when I discovered it.
I noticed that I could bend one of the crown leaves of the Orchid and make it look like a Snowdrop and from there on my mind did it’s thing.
I started pulling on some of the edit point on the leaf to make the two outer parts a bit longer and more pointy. I also edited the small flower buds a bit to make the round end a bit more wavy. Finally I edited the flower stem + the one on the insert to remove the leaves.
The leaves are also edited to be slimmer and longer as Snowdrop leaves are 🙂
It makes more sense looking at the picture 😀
Adorable right? I doubled the stems – one of each side of the insert and doubled the flower as well to make it look more dimensional.
Then I just added the leaves to the insert and there it was 🙂
I used AC Cardstock and DCWV patterned paper from the Samantha Rose Stack. I really love the way the foiled paper looks like snow melting on dirt. For the edges I used Distress Ink. The sentiment on the card reads “Congratulations” and is made with the Print and Cut option.
So now I have two options when making the Orchid/Snowdrop Box Card 🙂
