Mother's Day Flower Pot Card

Today's post is yesterday's post late!! Last night I couldn't get an internet connection (and we are so never doing wireless modem again!), so I will post it this morning instead! I can't wait for the new house where we will go back to internet through the phone lines. Woohoo. The house is at lock up stage and only needs to be painted. Moving time is coming soon!

Anyway, this morning I want to show you a Mother's Day Flower Pot Card. I have been inspired by the work of a fellow demonstrator, Robyn Lawton, who gave me one as a 'Swap'. I have used the exact same colours as her wonderful work (the Tangerine Tango Flower Pot Card) and then to show you how versatile this card is, I have then made the Flower Pot Card in Bashful Blue and using the same flower topper. Confused? Here's what I mean!

Just by changing the colours, the background stamps and even the ribbon makes for a new look card. I have also cut the scalloped edge on the blue card in line whereas on the orange card, the scalloped edge overhangs, just like a terracot pot would! Here's the colours I used:

Stamps: Petal Pizzazz, Tres Chic (Orange card) & Circle Circus (Blue card)

For the flowers: Stampin' Up! Tangerine Tango, Red Riding Hood & for the flower pots: Tangerine Tango or Bashful Blue.

Papers: Stampin' Up! Tangerine Tango or Bashful Blue, Whisper White & Red Riding Hood.

Other: Stampin' Dimensionals, Scallop Circle & Scallop Edge Punch, Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon or Bashful Blue Taffeta Ribbon.

Tip: I have used Stampin' Dimensionals (foam pads) to "lift" up the red flower.

Now that you know what I've used, have a look at the flower top insert:

To add your greeting, you can either stamp or write over the front red layer or on the back. You pick! But isn't it cute!

If you want the cutting measurements for the card - email me. I have the cutting measurements or I can scan in a template!! Feel free to ask. That's it for now. Have a lovely day :)
