Hope everyone had a super Saturday! I had a great one, I scored some super deals at JoAnn's and Michael's :) and spent time in my craft room too! What could be better!
I made this card for this weeks challenge at Celebrate The Occasion. This week the theme is "Anything Birthday" (must have a flower).
I cut a piece of brown cardstock 3 1/4" X 7" and folded it in half. Then I cut both sides at an angle (with the fold at the bottom) so that it resembled the shape of a pot. I cut another piece of brown cardstock 3 1/2 X 1 3/4. Using a scalloped border punch I punched one long end of the strip. I then adhered it to the flower pot, aligning the top edges and only applying adhesive to the top section of the strip. Then I wrapped ribbon around the strip.
The inside piece is white cardstock cut 3 3/4 X 2 1/4 and then matted with the pattern paper.
The flowers and leaves were cut with the Walk In My Garden Cricut cartridge.
I cut one border of daisy's at 1 1/2", two single daisy's at 1 1/2", 2 leaf borders at 1 1/2" and one leaf border at 1 1/4". The middle of the flowers were punched out of the patterned paper with a 1/2" circle punch. Then all the pieces were attached to the top of the white, matted piece. I added my sentiments and there you have it!
