Flower Pot Shaped Card - Happy Birthday!

Dear Friend, I pray that you are doing well in every way.
I pray that your body is strong and well even as your soul is.
3 John 1 : 2

Hello!  How is YOUR summer going?  Summer brings lots of changes for many people and there are changes in the schedule on, so I’ll be posting with other Design Team members once a week – either on a Wednesday or a Thursday – through the next couple of months.  Melin has been working hard and has come up with Many new files for us to showcase for you.  I hope you’ll see what I come up with each week!

This week I decided to use one of Melin’s several Shape Cards – the Flower Pot Shape Card cf’ – and also use the Happy Birthday ds’ sentiment from a new set.  I made a lovely summer bouquet in a pot for a Dear Friend’s birthday coming up.

I cut the base card and the separate pot and rim from ‘clay’ rust cardstock.  I cut the lace trim from beige cardstock.  I lightly inked the edges of all with dark rust ink.  I adhered them with foam squares for dimension.  I cut the flowers from 4 different shades/patterns of lavender cardstock and shaped them on the backside with my hand embosser.  I added gems to their centers. I adhered them with the foam squares, also.  I punched (MS) leaves and interspersed them among the blossoms.

I printed the inside sentiment from my PSE 10 program and changed the color to ‘clay’ rust.  I then cut it with a Spellbinders die and adhered it with foam squares.

Here are the files I used –

  1. Lynden, this is just beautiful! Love all the flowers and butterflies in the pot! Your friend is going to love her birthday card from you! :)

  2. I just love this card, Lynden. The variety of colors and different depths of the flowers make it seem almost real. The flower pot shape is an added bonus. This is truly a stunning card and I'm sure your friend will love receiving this card made with so much love and care.
