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.

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

To make these cards, I used this Silhouette Cut. Then I used all different colors from the Gemstones Pack, Green Spotted Core, Whitewash Core, and the 110 lb White Core. The best way I have found to make a bunch of cards is to use the cut on several different colors but only one color at a time and then mix and match the colors.

I just love sanding the tips of the Whitewash Core. The color shows through so vividly.

Clean and Simple Card 3 by Every Day is an Occasion

I used the Green Spotted Core for the leaves. It is really fun to sand and really gives the card that pop.

Envelopes and liners by Every Day is an Occasion

I made envelopes and liners with each card. I used a Pastels, 110 lb White Core, and this Silhouette Cut to make envelopes and liners.
