Monday's challenge was to make a flower pot pocket card using the directions found here. The original was a bit too small for me, so enlarged the top to 3-3/4" instead of 3-1/2". The scoring stayed the same.
I used SU Brocade blue for the base. The DP is Making Memories "Chloe's Closet", pretty blues, greens and yellows just right for spring. Some of the flower bases are from the same line as are the buttons and ribbon. I almost never treat myself to a complete line, but they were on sale and what's a girl to do?
I punched the rest of the flowers using Punch Bunch small and medium daisy punches and Brocade Blue and the Chloe's Closet paper. I added the saucer at the bottom. The leaves, border and butterfly are all Martha Stewart punches. The tag is from the Cuttlebug small tag set. The leaves are Certainly Celery and Old Olive. I adhered the leaves and buttons, which are tied with embroidery floss, using Mono-Multi. Don't you just love how the flowers just "bloom" right out of the pocket? The sentiments are from Papertrey's "Friends til the End". Thanks for stopping by. Love to know what you think!
Blessings and Happy Stamping Friends!
