Simple Flower Pot Card Tutorial

Above is the cute flower pot card that I made for my friend Cristi. Although I added a Valentine's Day sentiment inside, this card could easily be used for a birthday, Mother's Day, etc. Here's how I made it:

Start by adhering a piece of decorative paper to a 4" x 5 1/2" card base. Cut a piece of tan cardstock into a rectangle that measures 2" wide x 3" tall. Trim the 3" sides so that they taper to look like a flower pot:

Sponge brown ink around the edges of the flower pot and fold the top down to create the lip of the flower pot, securing the lip with a piece of adhesive. Attach a scrap piece of ric-rac or ribbon around the flower pot for a little extra decoration:

Attach the flower pot to the card with adhesive. Cut out 2 leaves from felt and attach at an angle from the flower pot using Glue Dots:

Layer 3 fabric and/or paper flowers and attach a decorative brad to the center of the flowers to hold together. Using Glue-Dots, attach the flower to the card above the flower pot:

Stamp a sentiment onto a scrap piece of white cardstock; cut out; and attach to the front of the card with 3-D dots. That's it - easy peasy - your super cute card is now complete! Here's another photo of the finished card:

Have a blessed day!
