I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries.

Sending Get Well Wishes To Brighten Up Your Day

Good Morning! Hope everyone is having a great week! Today's card was inspired by my Stampin Up representative Dawn Griffith. Here is the link to her tutorial---

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4N1xCL6SZU&feature=channel_page

This is a tag card, the tag fits into the flowerpot and measures 5.75" by 5.5" at the widest point when the tag is in the pot. I wanted it a little bit wider than Dawn's so I cut the base at 4 inch by 9 inch and scored at 2" and 5.5 ". The flower pot was embossed with Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes and Swiss Dot embossing folders. The flowers are Spellbinders flower die and the buttons are cut from Sizzix buttons, craft yarn was used to "tie" the buttons. I also used Martha Stewart branch punch and Cuttlebug leaf die for the greenery. Word on the tag are computer generated. The card was easy but easy doesn't equate to quick in this case. Had I used a flower punch instead of the Spellbinders and the Sizzix button die I'm sure it would have been quick as well. Thanks for stopping by and if you haven't, please sign by guestbook or leave a comment...you know how I LOVE to hear from you! Have a great day!

What a lovely card, all in pastels. This is the second time in 24 hours these types of cards have come to my attention. There is a swap for them on cricut message board.

Love the colours and the cuttlebugging

Love the colors and the ties on the buttons. Saved a pic on my computer, as usual with all your cards ;)

You did an awesome job on this card. I really like the flower pot and the fact that the card pulls up from the pot. Do you have instructions that you can share? I would love to make one of these cards.

I think yours is one of the prettiest flower pot cards I've seen. I'm a little confused by your instructions. You say the tag is 5.75" x 5.5", but you say the flower pot is 4" wide. Is that because the flowers make it that wide? Thanks for your help.
