So, every year, I try to find a card that's not just your average card to make for Mother's Day. Last year I did a tri-fold card that you can see here and the year prior I did a criss-cross card which you can view here. (Forgive the formatting of my older posts, when I redid my blog design, it messed up all the older posts.) This year, I was reminded by Bryan of Scrap Guy's PaperCrafting Adventure of the flower pot card that was all the rage a year or so ago. His is super cute and clean using the Cricut to cut his flowers. But, I decided to make things difficult on myself and cut all the flowers out by hand!! Brilliant decision on my part...I had 6 of these to make! These are all I accomplished on my scrapbooking weekend, but, I think it was worth it.
They were lots of fun and I think they turned out pretty cute...although, this wasn't a stellar example...I'm not sure why the flowers are all off to one side and I moved the butterflies up to the top of the big flower before I mailed them off. But, hopefully, you get the picture! ;O)
If you'd like to try making your own flower pot pocket card, you can find the tutorial here on SplitcoastStampers website. This would be a great one to stick a gift card to the back side of the insert!
