Orchid Lantern using the Hexagon Classic Lantern by Simply Crafty SVGs

Hiya, I LOVE combining SVG cutting files, and think the orchids from the Orchid Box Card look great on Sandy's lovely Classic Hexagon Lantern.

The vellum panels are decorated with Distress Oxide inks, and detail is added to the orchid petals, leaves and stems with alcohol markers. A double pinstripe line was added to the lantern's panels, initially with foil, and then with sketch pen over the top. The effect is a bit sketchy, but works fine with the vintage style of this lantern. It reminds me of a Victorian hothouse where orchids might have been grown in times past.

Materials Used:
White Heavyweight Smooth Cardstock
Green, Mauve & Purple Medium weight Textured Cardstock
Alcohol Markers
Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive
Heavyweight Vellum
Distress Oxide Inks
Silhouette Green Metallic Sketch Pen
Silhouette Cameo

Files Used:
Simply Crafty SVGs Orchid Box Card
Simply Crafty SVGs Classic Hexagon Lantern

Other Digital Files: 
Butterfly by Studio Ilustrado (Studio or SVG)

To add a pinstripe to the panels, a double internal offset of each of the panel pieces was made in the Silhouette Studio software.

These are the files I used. Just click on the photo to visit the page in Simply Crafty SVGs online store.
