Flower Pot card

This card fits in a standard card envelope, We made them at club with flowers from the Big Shot, as well as the die cut ones that are in the catalog, we also punch some in about every color. They turned out great.
Flower Pot Card

Cut a sheet of Tangerine Tango or Pumpkin Pie in half at 4 ¼" x 11".
Fold sheet in half and with the fold at the bottom fold the top two sides down at 2".
From the bottom edge measure in at 3/8" cut diagonally from that point to the edge at the upper fold. Do this on both sides.
Punch the folded down edges with the scallop edge punch.
Sponge edges of pot with Really Rust, darker at the edges and under rim of pot (scallop edge).
Tightly tie a ribbon around the rim of the pot so that the pot forms a pocket.
The inside pull out piece is 3" x 3 ¼".
Select a variety of punched flowers. Starting on the rim attach flowers to the rim.
On the inside pull out piece continue to build a pyramid of flowers, make sure that from the bottom of the pull out to the top of the top flower it measures 5" high (when you put it back into the pot pocket it should be a finished size of 4 ¼" x 5 ½").
Place the insert in to the pot.
Stamp phrase on scrap paper and punch with the small oval punch, punch a large oval from a color of your choice. Attach to the tied ribbon with a piece linen thread.
