Flower Pot Card with Hidden Tag

We still have weeks more of winter, but I am already yearning for the warmer days of spring. I adore the bright and beautiful flowers of the season, and find that they lift my spirits like nothing else.  I find that I often start making cheerful projects to help me get over the winter blues.  This fun card is sure to brighten someone’s day as well.

Flower-pot-cardFlower Pot Card Supplies:

Step 1.  Score a piece of cardstock along the top edge of the card base (large enough to accommodate the flower pot die).  Tape the die so the top cutting edge is off of the cardstock, and cut.

Step 2.  Die cut the smaller sized flower pot and distress the surface with the Sand-It Gadget.

002

Step 3.  Machine stitch the smaller pot onto the larger one, leaving the top open to form a pocket.

Step 4.  Decorate the flower pot with die cuts and ribbons.

005

Step 5.  Use the smaller die to draw a line to trim a large tag, so that it will fit into the pocket, while leaving enough visible at the top to add flowers.

Step 6.  Decorate the tag with flowers, ribbon and vellum sentiment.

Step 7.  Slide into the pocket to finish.

Chalkboard Family Frame Supplies:

Step 1: Use a simple black 8×10 frame and cut four (4) 1/2″ strips of White Core Chalk Core, sand them,  and Mod-Podged the strips to the perimeter of the frame. The frame already had a photo mat that came with the frame so cover the photo mat with White Core Chalk Core and sand it.

Step 2: Use a sheet of Colored Core Chalk Core  for the inside of the photo mat. ISand it, and adher it to the cardboard frame backing.

Step 3: Then, using a variety of flower punches and the Colored Chalk Core  decorate the frame.

Core’dinations Chalk Core pairs well with Core’dinations Whitewash Cardstock. They both have a subtle “chalky” look. Mix in some of that with the flowers as accents and leaves and  some fun self adhesive pearls and rhinestones to the flower centers.

Step 4: Cut the banner and the title with your Silhouette electronic cutting machine or any other machine you have.

Step 5: Attaching the photo:  I used a heavy duty glue dot behind a metal clip. This way I can switch the photo out whenever we have a current shot.

Here is a close-up of some of the flowers-you can see the fabulous texture of the cardstocks.

Can you believe this project is all cardstock? I love to create beautiful (one of a kind) things for my home that are inexpensive, and best of all- unique.  ~ Shaunte
