Flowers Just For You

After seeing all the cute flower pot pocket cards everyone has been posting on SCS lately, I had to give one a try. Here's what I came up with: I used my Big Shot and the Simple Flower Embosslit along with the Birds & Blooms and Little Leaves Sizzlits to cut all the flowers and leaves. I stamped the butterfly from the Great Friends set in Baja Blue and cut it out. The "just for you" sentiment is from the new Oval All set and punched with SU! newest punch...the Scallop Oval. I used Parisian Breeze paper on the pot and the Eyelet border punch on the rim. Here's what it looks like with the pocket pulled out:

The swirls across the bottom and the little stamped flowers on top of the embossed ones came from the Simple Friendship set. This was a fun card to make. Here is the link to a great tutorial on how to make one yourself. I have one tip I learned while creating my flower pot card: Have an envelope handy as you are building your flowers. I had to cut off a lot of the leaves I originally had glued on because it was just too large to fit inside a standard envelope.

Have a great day!
