Flower Pot for Mom

I have seen these all over and just had to make one for my MIL this year. They are suprisingly small (fit into a standard card envelope), but pack a super cute punch!!

I punched out the flowers with a McGill punch. I embossed the lower half of of the flower pot with D'Vine Swirls, the salmon and blue flowers with Swiss Dots and the tan flowers with window screening!! I punched the 'rim' of the pot with the lace doily border punch. The centers of the flowers are cut from a button die. The flowers are then layered in different levels with pop dots. The text is all computer generated.
Materials: PAPER Colormates-Creamy Cocoa, Cascata-Salmon, Coffee, Blue (WorldWin Papers) OTHER Embossing Folders-Swiss Dots, D'Vine Swirls (ProvoCraft), Buttons Sizzlets Die (Sizzix), Flower Punch (McGill), Lace Doily Border punch (Martha Stewart), Window Screening, Ribbon
Thanks for stopping by! Have a creatively wonderful day!
