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.

Pun Fun- hip-hippo-ray

Hip-hippo-ray, now if only Stampin'up would make a stamp that said "I was born today" how cool would that be! That's what I'd want stamped inside this card.
The card base is Whisper white, layered with Pretty in Pink, and pieces from Sweet Always. I watercolored the hippo on watercolor paper with Water color Wonder Crayons, Layered it on Pumpkin Pie, then Regal Rose. I used a brad from Flower Assortment. I hope you like it.

Party Hearty- Sweet Always

I used a Jumbo Eyelet in the middle of the "b" and the seed beeds on the cupcakes. The colors are taken straight from the Sweet Always paper, Chocolate Chip and Pumpkin Pie.

Party Hearty- that just didn't quite work...

In my head this was going to be cute, finished it didn't make it. I think it needs a Pink Passion Ribbon, then it might have worked better. The base is a piece of Pink Passion CS cut at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" I cut Green Galore at 5 1/4" x 8 1/2" and bi-folded it, I used the Curly Label punch so the Let's celebrate shows through to the front. So what would you do to make this card work?

Fresh cut - Thank you

Well I tried to be good, I cased this card by someone named Chat (My son figured out where I cased from it is: but the web sit is blurry and I can't read it to direct you to her site, I tried, I really did:(. She used different colors added ribbon and dew drops (?) Her designer paper layer was twice as wide, We did use the same stamp set. So my card. I used Chocolate Chip as my card base. Layer are Bordering Blue and Chocolate Chip. The designer paper is from Bella Birds. My inks are Bordering Blue and Chocolate Chip.
