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.
Love my Jesus! Love my husband, my boys, & my grandbabies! I treasure my old gold friendships & enjoy making new silver ones. I am a Paper Arts Instructor who constantly enjoys making a lovely mess of my craft room, and then organizing it all over again. I love hosting tea parties, and like all things girly! A hot cuppa Chai is my relaxing Saturday morning treat. My favorite scripture is Isaiah 43:2. God brought me through so much, that instead of just surviving, I now can live!
