Couture Creations - Flowerpot card

Hello there everyone,
 it's my first  Design Team project today here at Couture Creations , 
showing you all a step by step project with the fabulous products from Couture Creations. 
Today, I have created a Flowerpot Happy Birthday card, 
these have been popular lately and this is my interpretation of one.

Happy Birthday Flower Pot Card


Cut a piece of card stock 28cm x 12 cm
Score cardstock at 4 cm and at 16cm, fold on each score line. 
Ink edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

At the 16cm fold, measure 3cm from each end and cut out triangular shape.

Fold over top flap and attach on to front of pot with 
also attach Doubled sided tape 3mm x 25m each side of pot, 
peel tape backing and close pot, 
this will create an opening on top of pot for your tag.


Cut 3 Sunflowers for the Couture Creations Sunflower Nesting Dies 
with different coloured papers. To create a tag cut a piece of cardstock 8cm x 14cm.

Place all flower pieces through

Ink all the edges and on top of embossed images with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Pierce a hole in the center of each flower, place smaller flower inside 
middle flower and then inside the large flower, 
place Kaisercraft pearl brad through centre of flower.
Repeat process to all flower petals.

On top of tag attach flower, adhere double sided foam tape
on the other two flowers on either side of middle flower.

Cut 3 Decorative Die- Moments in Time from green cardstock, 
cut in half and place around flowers and on the top of pot.  
Create a bow with Seam binding ribbon attach in centre of tag.
Write your message on the tag.

Cut a piece of cardstock 8cm x 6 cm, fold in half and attach 
on back of pot, this will help to keep the pot standing upright.

Decorate pot with messages or more flowers, if desired.
