I started with a base of Purple Posy cardstock and then added another layer of Purple Posy that I first ran through the Cut & Emboss Machine using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.
Using the Welcoming Window stamp set, I stamped the flower pot image onto Basic White cardstock using a Terracotta Tile stamp pad, which is the perfect color for a flower pot. I cut it out using the flower pot die in the Window Flower Box Dies.
I did the flowers a little differently than I would normally do them. Let me explain. I stamped the leaves in Old Olive ink and then, using a separate stamp, stamped the flowers in Highland Heather ink. Then I cut them out using one of the dies in the set. I wasn’t happy with the results because I pretty much cut off some important parts. So, I cut the shape FIRST, and then stamped onto the cut out. It was easy to do because the stamps are photopolymer and you can see right through them. I nailed it on the first try. So, find what works for you!
Using the Layering Circles Dies, I cut a scalloped circle out of Gorgeous Grape cardstock and a circle out of Basic White cardstock and layered the two pieces together. Before gluing the flower pot onto the circle, I figured out where I wanted it and then stamped the sentiment in Highland Heather ink using the stamp set, Welcoming Window. Then I glued the flower pot down, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the flowers and placed them on top of the flower pot. I used our Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack to make a bow and used Multipurpose Glue to adhere it to the flower pot. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the scalloped circle and placed it on the front of the card.
To complete the card, I added three Playing with Patterns Resin Dots in Purple Posy below the sentiment. If you’d like to make today’s card, you can find all the measurements I used below the Supply List.
