I made this stem of orchids entirely out of cardstock (and a little floral wire and floral tape). I used Whisper White cardstock, Stampin Pastels, Cherry Cobble marker, and Pearl Jewels to create the blooms. I used Garden Green card stock and Always Artichoke ink for the leaves.

Thanks for your kind words ladies. To answer the questions regarding punches. I didn't use any punches for these orchids. Rather, I used a template that I created myself. Although there would have been ways to create the base and wing petals with punches, the throat of the orchid would have been impossible with punches alone. I figured it I was going to create a template for the throat, I might as well create one for the whole bloom. Hope that answers your question. --Leigha
