Flower Pot Cards
For the tulips I used the Oval1 on page 22 cut at 3/4 inch and I cut 3 per tulip. I used some retired patterned paper and inked the edges all the way around the ovals before gluing them together. I cut the stems from from scrap New England Ivy as well as the leaves (just elongated leaf with point at end).
Here is a great tutorial for how to make a Flower Pot card with pictures to show you how the pot is cut.Thank you Stephanie Luman for posting this terrific tutorial. I changed the dimensions a bit. My Autumn Terracotta cardstock was cut 3 1/2 x 8 " , I scored @ 1" and 3 1/2". I also embossed the bottom of the pot with a cuttlebug folder for character.
These cards are longer than a standard size invitation card, the height is about 7 inches, and the width 4 1/4.
As always if you have any questions, I will be happy to try and answer them.
I'd love to know what you think, so please leave me a comment. Thanks and have a wonderful Day!
