Flower Pot Card

Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers out there!  I hope you are all able to celebrate in your own special way!!  My mother moved out of state a couple of years ago, so I'm not able to spend the day with her, but I'll be thinking about her a lot.  My sweetie and I are planning to play golf, and I'm hoping my mom is able to do the same!

I have seen a few flower pot cards recently and was inspired to give one a try myself.  I used the Walk in My Garden cartridge for the flower pot and the daisies.

To create the flower pot, I simply cut 2 of the flower pot images, then used adhesive only on the outside edges of the sides and bottom of the pot.

Then I was able to cut a piece of pattern cardstock that would fit inside the flower pot.  I attached my flowers to the top of this piece of cardstock.

I hand trimmed the bottom part of my pattern cardstock so that it would fit inside the flower pot a little better.  Then I cut a piece of white cardstock to layer on top with my stamped sentiment.  The back side of my pattern cardstock is white, so I was able to write a message to my mom there.

Thanks for stopping by to see my creation!  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!!
