Flower Pot Card

Before I start with this post I wanted to remind you about my Blog Candy.. Don't forget to enter, details here.

I have seen tons of this type of cards on Splitcoaststampers lately and decided to try to make one too. I especially liked this card made by Lesa. I have had a lot of fun making this card and really like how it has turned out.

This will be one of the cards for my upcoming "April Showers bring May Flowers" card class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. We will make three cards in this class, all different designs. This class is scheduled for:

Thursday, April 23rd, 11 am to 2 pm
Thursday, April 23rd, 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Saturday, May 23rd, 12 pm to 3 pm

Please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 to sign up.

If you can't make it to the class but would like to make these three cards, please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 during the business hours to purchase a Class Kit.

I changed the dimension of the card to fit the large flowers that I made. This card will fit in 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" envelope. I used Lesa's tutorial found here to make the flowers, but I used Marvy Scalloped Heart punches instead of Nestabilites. The leafs were made with the same punches as the petals for the flowers. Dew Drops in the center of the flowers. Martha Steward punch for the scallops on the flower pot. Cuttlebug Embossing Folder on the bottom part of the flower pot. The tag was cut and embossed with Nestabilites.
