Flower Pot Pocket Card
Say that four times, fast! :)
This is the Monday the 21st CCEE challenge, and there is an excellent tutorial for it on SplitcoastStampers. I had a lot of fun doing my autumn version. The flowers are attached to the panel that slides in and out of the pot. You can write your sentiment on this. I got the idea for using the 'sanded' background stamp on the pot from my Stampin'Up consultant, Carol, and I love the look. We did a beautiful summery one at her monthly stamp club. She also taught us how to do the crimped leaves for another project. You cut an oval leaf shape, fold it in half tip to tip, and run it through the crimper on a slant. Love it!
Recipe: stamps- sanded (SU); paper- white and terra cotta colored cardstock, designer paper (Hopscotch mat pad, K&Company); ink- white pigment (Color Box); accessories- eyelet border punch, green gingham ribbon (Offray), Flower Layers#3 dies (SU), crimper.
