A Friday night with the kids sleeping so really just me home I decided to go and play with some flowers and have some fun. I found this flowerpot while browsing through the www. and thought it looked adorable so ... as it goes I had to make one too lol.
I had a read through the tutorial and whipped a mock one up and played around with it. I liked the idea, I just didn’t like the finished size or the versatility of it so ... as it goes I played some more and wallah!
To me this card is just too pretty to be laying down and not seen so I backed the back of the pot with an additional piece of card, folded it again and added a simple stand hold so now it can be up and displayed. I also found I needed some extra height to firmly mount my flowers onto.
I edged the edges with pink ink to make the pot more defined and I used a digi swirl image accented with pink and turquoise jewels as my design on the pot. The image is a free image I have saved in my stash but I have no idea who it belongs to (if you do recognise the image can you please let me know so I can give credit to where credit is due, thanks).
What do I love
I love the flower border with the jewel flowers.
The image – the jewels just set the piece.
The fact it can now stand and be displayed!
