Pots Full of Posies!

Recovering and recuperating from the Gospel Festival weekend. It was a really busy weekend. We saw so many familiar faces and many more new faces. We missed some of our old friends as well. I am a bit achey today, since I rolled about 12 lbs. of flour mixed as dough for ham pot pie on Sunday. (Really missed having Todd and Temi there for that part!)

How about these really sweet flower pot cards! The pot is a "pocket" and you pull the posies up to see the sentiment! There are a ton of them to see on Splitcoast. These were my first attempts at them, not too bad. I learned a few things, like my pot was too long, so I gave it an extra fold at the bottom (if you view it from the side it looks like a "W" fold) and surprise!!! then they could stand up on there own! Too cool! You also need to have your envelope handy when you are positioning the flowers so that you can be sure the card is going to fit! I am sure that there is some pattern with measurements and all that, but really who can be bothered by such things??? LOL!!! I tell everyone that I learn by trial and error... mostly ERROR! {sigh}
Purple posies on the top are a Maaaaaartha punch. Bottom posies are the new Creative Memories Scallop circle punch. It is pretty neat, you flip a little slidey thing on the bottom and it also will punch little circles inside the scallops, so it looks like eyelet almost. I will be demo-ing it at the St. Andrew School Crop in a few weeks!
Take care!
