I have seen these adorable cards around for a while now and always wanted to try making one. This one has been sitting in pieces on my craft desk for a few months and last night I finally got it put together!
The flower pot is constructed with a piece of kraft cardstock the measures 11” x 4 ½” and is scored at 4 ½” and 9”. When it’s all folded it will measure 4 ½” high, 4 ½” wide at the top and about 3 5/8” wide as the base. The inside base of the card measures 6 ¼” x 3 ½” and the ivory card measures 6” x 3 ¼”.
To make the flowers and leaves I used the following punches (sorry for the blurry pic) with Pure Luxury layering weight ivory cardstock and colored the blossoms and leaves with copic markers in Y11, Y15, Y17, & G03, G09.
Here’s a close-up of the flowers. I don’t know if you can see it or not, but after shaping the leaves I added some veining with a small stylist.
The finished card fits perfectly into an A7 envelope which is 5 ¼” x 7 ¼”. Depending on the size of your blossoms that you are using, I would suggest making sure you have the envelope on hand before you start arranging the gluing down the flowers, just to make sure it’s going to fit.
Thanks for stopping by!
