Flower Pot Card

Isn't this the cutest card? I've been seeing these on other blogs and decided to give it a try myself! I love the results. I'll be making more of these that is for sure but I wanted to get this one up on my blog since I have not posted in a few days. Sorry. Life was busy with my oldest graduating from college.

Here is the inside pulled out to reveal a message. This is so easy to make. Here are the directions:
  • Cut a piece of cardstock to 3-1/2 x 9 and score at 2" and 5-1/2 ". Fold the 2" side toward you and the 5-1/2" side away.
  • To make the pot shape, fold the flap up and put your card into your paper trimmer with the 2" score line on the cutting track and the 5-1/2" score line on the 1/2" mark on the trimmer. Cut. This forms the angle of the pot. Do the other side. Fold flap down.
  • I used a glue dot in each corner to keep the card closed. Make sure it is close to the edge so you can insert your piece inside.
  • For the inside piece cut your cardstock 2-1/2 x 4-1/2 and your layered piece 2-1/4 x 4-1/4.
  • For the flowers, I used the Flower Daisies #2 Die for the Big Shot. Any of the flower dies for the Big Shot will be lovely! If you don't have the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine ( yet ), you can use the silk flowers from the Pretties Kit or stamp a flower and cut them out.

Here are the supplies I used for my flower pot:
Stamps - Curvy Verses
Paper - Sweet Slumber Party Specialty Paper
Cardstock - Riding Hood Red, Whisper White
Accessories - Scallop Edge Punch, Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Flower Brads, Glue Dots
