So after much thought and research I decided on an Easel Card design inspired by several I saw on Pinterest including one I had seen on Bronwyn Eastley's Blog.Addinktive Designs.
I have used retired Botanical Garden paper, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Mint Macaron, Old Olive and Always Artichoke cardstock and ink.
The flowerpot is actually a pocket for a greeting card.
so you could write a personal message.
Here is a back view of the message card. I placed this through the bigshot with a circle framelit and only ran it through half way to get the curved top.
My Easel Card is 14cm x 14cm.
The top is scored in half at 7cm.
I used the template to cut my flower pot shape from the bottom half of my Easel card.
I then cut a flower pot (with the fold) in Cajun Craze and used the new tear and tape around the sides and bottom edge. To create a pocket in the Flower pot to hold my card which is topped with flowers and leaves.
TIP: place your card in the pocket and arrange the flower and leaves and greeting first before gluing them so you can get a good idea of where they will sit around the the flower pot.
Unlike my usual comment that a card was a simple/easy/quick .... I won't be saying that this time!
This card did take a while to work out and get just right. But it is definitely a WOW card! And sometimes you do need a WOW card to give to a special someone.
Here's Rosie checking out the flowers in one of my flower pots.
Hope you have a great day. Thanks for stopping by. Vx
