Flower Pot card

april_theme_500a

I've made a card for the April challenge at the Hero Arts Blog.  There are many ways to enter; one of them is to make a shaped card.  I was cleaning out some of my files and came across this pattern for making a flower pot card.

Potted Flowers

supplies: rust and kraft cardstock, various BoBunny and doodllebug designs dp, Hero Arts flowers stamps and sentiment stamps, twine, buttons

The pot is hinged at the bottom; it has a separate rim, and it's held together with wrapped twine.  There is an insert which pulls out with another sentiment inside.  Here are a couple other photos to show you how it looks separated from the insert:

Potted Flowers parts

Potted Flowers, insert

If you'd like the exact stamps I used, please visit my flickr photostream where I listed them all.  Here is the downloadable template from Andrea Walford that I used for my flowerpot.

I'll also enter this into the Simon Says Stamp challenge: "April Showers Bring Spring Flowers", and also into A Blog Named Hero's "Play Favorites" challenge, as I love all of Hero Arts' flowers..
