Flower Pot Card

Standard

Enjoy the Little Things!  What a great motto for life.  We are surrounded by so many beautiful blooms in gardens and parks at the moment and this stamp set reminds me of that.

A few years ago, someone clever made a flower pot card at one of my workshops and I always planned to do one but never got around to it.  I have a friend who is going through a tough time at the moment and thought this little card may brighten her day.

It didn’t take long to make.  I watched a video that gave me all the info I needed.  You can watch it by clicking here.  Basic measurements are 3 1/3″ x 9″ for pot, scored at 3 1/2″ and 7″ and the insert is 2 1/2″ x 5″.  This fits Australian C6 envelopes ( The lady on the video is using American sized envelopes)  The decorative edge of the pot rim was created using CTMH Scallop Border Punch (Z1851).

I cut my blooms using the Art Philosophy cartridge and stamped one of the images as a centre for each.  I layered different sized flowers using foam dots.    The leaves are cut free hand.

Washi Tape was perfect to hold the pot together… no need to fuss with bow tying for this one. I love the little flag that comes with this set and felt it added a nice finishing touch.

If you check out page 7 of our NEW Idea Book and Catalogue (Feb-July 2-14) you will see two gorgeous little gift bags decorated with this stamp set.  I made this card to match one of the bags.
