My First Flower Pot Pocket Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing my first try at a Flower Pot Pocket Card. I have been wanting to try this for some time. You can find the tutorial at SplitCoastStampers. My card is made using K&Company scrap papers from previous projects! Of course, I had to use my Cricut for the flower cuts!
Cricut Cartridges:
Mother's Day Bouquet - Flower 3 - Varying sizes from 1" to 2'' at 1/4" increments for the flower petals.
Home Decor - Border 4 cut 1.75" for the flourish. One is used at top of card and part of a second flourish cut is used at the bottom of flower pot.
Martha Stewart edge punch.

My Craft Spot Friends & Neighbors Stamp used on the insert. Doily, lace, and ribbon from stash. Recollection pearls accent the centers of the flowers. Dew Drop Gingerbread inking.
I enjoyed trying this style of card! If you would like to try one, click on the tutorial link at top of post.
