Do you like to create shaped cards? I have made many flower pots with a pull out greeting, but now Heartfelt Creations has made it so easy. In their new Balmy Breeze collection they have included two size flower pot dies in the "Decorative Flower Pot" die set. I used two of the larger die cut pots for the bottom. They were die cut using Tim Holtz "Kraft-Core" card stock then embossed using the Mpress "Retro Swirls 1" embossing folder. Because this is a Kraft- card stock, you can sand the colored card stock and the kraft color will show through. I used the Tim Holtz little "Sanding Block". The two pots were put together along the edges using 1/8" ScorTape. Along the top edge of the pot I added a Spellbinders "Moroccan Accents" border.
The smaller flower pot die was used for the insert. It was die cut using ivory card stock. On the back of the insert, I glued one of the Decorative Lattice Swirl die cuts for stability for the flowers. I used the Heartfelt Creations "Posy Patch PreCut set" for the flowers. They were black embossed on wine colored textured card stock then cut out with the matching Posy Patch dies. The leaves from the "Beautiful You PreCut Set" were also black embossed on green textured card stock and cut out with the "Decorative Flower Pot" dies. The leaves and flowers were shaped then added to the top of the insert. The sentiment is from the "Beautiful You PreCut set".
After the insert was completed, it was put back into the center of the pot and additional flowers were added to the front of the pot. The tag is also from the "Decorative Flower Pot" dies. One of the sentiments from the "Beautiful You PreCut Set" was stamped on the tag. The edges of the tag and flower pot were sponged with Distress Ink.
This was a very easy and fun card to create. Heartfelt Creations has a great variety of flowers you can add.
