Flower Pocket Pot Card

My first quick attempt at the Flower Pot Card....

I did find plenty of ooopsies !!  First you must have a double sided paper (same color) otherwise when you flip the front of the pot you can end up like me with a white front... I improvised and like the results. I added a piece of matching print piece to the front flap or front of pot.
Second oopsies! I did not cut flower with Sizzix as the instructions ask for, not problem! I cut with Cricut and Basic Cakes Cart. The oopsies is that I cut too big! no room for leaves, but I still like the simplicity of it.
Third oopsies!!  Do not use Memory Dye Ink pad for sentiment with textured paper, my stamping does not look that nice, but I, on the inside sentiment filled in with a brown sharpie marker. I'm ok.

Fourth oopsies!!!  when attempting to punch double paper with EK, stop!!! it will not work, but I fix and all in all I am very happy with the end result!!! At least now I know what to do or not to do for next time! Because there will be a next time!! I really think this is a beautiful card (better in person) and you should check this link for different options and variations with video tutorial!!Flower Pocket Pot Card Tutorial Also, Linda Kaiser from The Paper Boutique has made a beautiful Flower Pocket Pot Card and provided the link on her site for the tutorial mentioned above.

I like seeing examples of cards that aren't just your basic A2 card. Great job, and those oopsies are how we learn. I do them all the time!

Hi - thanks for your nice comments on my apple card. BTW means, By the way and I mostly use Stampin Up inks, but sometimes I use Staz On if I really want to make sure it doesn't run :)
