Flower Pot Cards

I bought this flower pot cut file from the Silhouette store awhile back (Side note: One thing I love about the Silhouette store is how inexpensive all the cut files and often they have sales making them cheaper than the normal 99 cents.) and had been wanting to use it for something but hadn't created anything with it. 

Last week, I finally had times to craft for me since I had been pretty consumed with crafting for the BMB retreat and decided to create a few cards for my Mom for Mother's Day and a friend. I recalled the flower pot shape and decided to give it a try. It was pretty easy. I just selected different papers and cut them. 

The way the card is created the flower part slides down into the pot. You can write your sentiment below the flowers. 

I used different patterned papers to create the flowers. (I actually used some scraps - I'm on a mission to dwindle down my scrap pile this year!) 

I decided it needed something a little more and that's when I added the ribbon. I create a tag using a punch and a stamp.

I love how they turned out! 

I forgot how much fun card making is and I know I'll be sharing more cards soon!
