Flower pot card

Hi everyone! A quick midweek post! I had to get into the Flower pot card craze! What a great surprise card! AND surprisingly easy! It's also versatile-any flowers will work!! I love daisies so that's what I started with. these are made with a Sizzix die (used in my Cuttlebug!). The die has three sizes. I used two each of the smaller two flowers. It's called Daisies 2. It's available at Sizzix and is also carried by SU! The center is a 1/2" punch from my My Mind's Eye paper (Grow). The "leaves" are punched with the SU five petal punch. I used Blush blossom, sponged to give it more color for the card and tag.


And here is the inside tag that pulls out. I just can't wait to do more of these!!
Here is the link for the SCS thread for TLC215. She gives a link to Stefanie's great directions!
Well, it's hump day and I'm off for work!
have a great day!
Cheryl

I love this technique at SCS. Yours turned out fantastic. One thing I don't understand about these dies, why the BIG holes in the center of the flowers. If anyone figures it out please let me know!LOLOL!
Still I love your version. Just a pretty card!
hugs,
Pam
