Mothers Day Flower Pot card
This card was inspired by Isabella Wheadon on the Cricut mb...she posted a hanging basket full of flowers, and I was immediately inspired to make this. The pot was made in scal with basic shapes and then inked from the upper rim downwards to give the illusion of shadowing. The flowers cut as follows...yellow 1" george, purple and pink 1/4" scal font common bullets, the two leaves in the front are 1" and the shadow cut from Storybook and the greenery in behind is Storybook and Home Accents cut at 1" to 2". The vines in front are from Home Accents and Home Decor, cut at 1 1/4" and 1 1/2". All flowers and leaves were inked. I started by popping up my pot, then placed the background leaves first. Then popped some of the next ones, but not all to give depth. the vines went on last. Glued the yellow flowers first (oh, the centers are just done with std hole punch), then a couple purple for color and finally the pink ones all over...this was such a fun card to make, and I am really pleased with how it turned out.
