Flower Pot Card (Don't Look Mom!)

I know my last post was a "Dad" project, and here I am back to "Mom," but this Weekend is Mother's Day! So, most of the time I'm planning for my next class -and I'm (sometimes) a month or so ahead of holidays! But this is the card I made my mom for Mother's Day!

I kept seeing these "Flower Pot" cards on Splitcoast, and couldn't resist making one. I think I could have used an easier flower, but I really like this Daisy die from the Big Shot. And I couldn't get much easier than running the cardstock through the Big Shot - no cutting out!! I used the Little Leaves Sizzlet to accent the flowers. The flower centers are 3/4" circle punched from Bella Rose Designer Series Papers with a Summer Sun Corduroy Button. I used the 1" Double Stitched Chocolate Grosgrain ribbon around the pot, but I folded it in half cuz it seemed a little thick! I also used the saying "my mom" from Holiday Blitz - LOVE that set with everything in it - and so many punch options!

The little card that slips into the pocket is just 2 1/2" x 4 1/2". The flowers and leaves are all stuck (kinda randomly) on the top edge of it. The measurements for the card base (pot) is 3 1/2" x 9". You score the 9" side at 2" and then 5 1/2". Then the 2" flap is punched with the scallop edge punch. The pot isn't stuck together, just the ribbon around it keeps it together. Kinda Cool!! By the way, the pot is Really Rust!
Hope you're having a good week!
