Since the image can be stamped and die cut so easily, I decided to create an interesting background.

I know a cover die like Moroccan Mosaic Die may look intimidating.

However, it is a beautiful set for using in the background. And that was what I did with this card.
Once I adhered the Cattleya image onto the cover die, I trimmed off part of the cover die.

I was a bit worried that it may look bad....however, the worries were unfounded.
I really like how this turned out.

As you can see, the die will cut all the tiny spots and corners through without any problem.
I added a few small die cut pieces from the cover die. This added great interests and pops of color.

While I was at it, I added white splatter from the Altenew Pure White Ink Sprays.

Absolutely gorgeous. Pairing the orchid diecut with that cover die is a stroke of genius. Also, using that grey cardbase was an awesome choice.
