Flowerpot Card Full of Pizzazz



These little flowerpot pocket cards are so much fun (and easy!) to make. Here's some instructions by Stephanie that'll inspire you to create a "dare to be different - WOW" kind of card! I love lifting the little flower cluster out of their flowerpot to see the special message inside. This was made for one of my daughter's best friends (who is celebrating a birthday this weekend), and I adapted my flowerpot dimensions so that it would fit horizontally in the envelope. The flowers were stamped on white & cut out, then adhered to the upper portion of a rectangular white piece of cardstock that simply slides into the flowerpot pocket. The blue flowers are popped up with dimensionals. I was trying a variation of the Faux Shaving Cream technique on the red flower - the picture doesn't do this flower enough justice! The swirl on it was created using the paisley stamp from the Wanted stamp set. The leaves were made by using the 5 petal flower punch with Old Olive cardstock, then cut apart to make the individual leaves. I hope you enjoy this little creation today and be sure to have a great weekend!

Very very cool-love the wider look! Again, your attention to detail is striking-the faux shaving cream looks great, the scalloped trim at the bottom adds so much & the coordinating top scallop is wonderful!!
