The Price of a Flower Pot Card

A bouquet for Mom

I thought these Flower Pot Cards would be pretty for Mother's Day, but as I was still working on our tea party for church I ended up making them last minute.  AND since I was going in with my sisters for both my Mother & Mother inlaw, the cards had to arrive in time.  So each card cost me over $15 -- not to make, but to send!  Why?  Because I procrastinated in sending them out. 

Yep, my fault...the cost to make them, however was incredibly better.  LOL.  I was able to use various paper scraps to complete the flowers and just added a brad to secure them together.  A few pop dots added a bit of dimension, Martha Stewart's Star Burst border punch distinguished the flower pot, a little inking around all the edges, and the cards were complete. 

Splitcoast Stampers has an easy to follow tutorial for making these cute flower pot cards HERE.  I used my Cricut to cut out the flower pieces, and leafy branches with the Straight from the Nest cartridge, & cut "Happy Mother's Day" using the 2010 Mother's Day cart. 

Thankfully I have a very understanding hubby, who knew how busy I was with the tea party--so I didn't get much grief about the costly cards.  Although, I'm supposed to remember not to do that again.  =)

Thanks for stopping by!

ETA - Just in case you thought you saw this posting earlier, you probably did--I guess when Blogger went down last week this post got deleted from my blog, including all the comments.  I just realized it, so I'm reposting it today.
