It’s easy and oh so cute! If you haven’t tried it out, what are you waiting for?
My Flower Pot base is Soft Suede cardstock.
The flap edge was punched with the Eyelet Border Punch and the entire flap was sponged with Soft Suede ink.
The lower part of the Pot is covered with Thoroughly Modern Designer Paper. Polka Dot Red Ribbon was tied around the flap.
The sentiment is from For All You Doand is stamped with Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla cardstock. It was punched out with the small oval punch, layered first on a sponged Chocolate Chip large oval punch-out, then on a Bermuda Bay Scallop Oval. I underlined the sentiment with a paper pierced row and added three little flowers. They had been stamped in Crushed Curry and Real Red, cut out and topped with a tiny Chocolate Chip Circle I had punched out with the Double circle punch (retired).
The flowers were punched with the Embosslit Cherry Blossom, the branches with the die cut Little Leaves.
I punched two for each flower, cut the center out, sponged both of them and added 5/16″ brads in each center. The branches were taped on with Scor-Tape, the flowers with dimensionals.
The first layer of the insert is a 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ piece of Textured Real Red cardstock, layered with a 1/4″ smaller piece of Very Vanilla. A 7/8″ x 2 1/4″ piece of Thoroughly Modern DP was added to the bottom of the insert to tie it in with the front.
The sentiment is also from For All You Doand is stamped in Chocolate Chip. The buttefrly from the same set was stamped in second generation Crushed Curry over it.
P.S.: If you want to see/hear my first attempt at a video tutorial for SCS, check it out here. I was very nervous and you can hear it when I talk. I hope I will get better with the following tutorials.
