Mother's Day Flower Pot Card

Mother's Day will be here before we know it, so I dug into my "best of" archives to share this fun flower pot card with you today. This doesn't have to be just for Mother's Day, though, it is perfect for any time!

I made this special card for my mom 3 years ago, using THIS tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers. I adapted it to work with more flowers and added more layers.

The flowers lift out of the pot to reveal your message.

I chose some fancy embellishments which made it pretty top-heavy, so be sure you're working with heavy cardstock-weight paper like CTMH's, and you may want some extra layers for reinforcement.

I used 3 different flower cuts from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge in various sizes. I just love that has everything!

The paper I used is from CTMH's retired Stella Paper pack. One of the things I love most about CTMH is how everything coordinates perfectly. Our paper packs each have 6 different coordinating patterns and you can get matching embellishments as well!

Here are some of CTMH's current paper and accessory options that would be beautiful for this type of card.
Blossom Paper Pack
Brushed Paper Pack
Seaside Paper Pack
My Crush In the Pink
(My Crush is a spiral-bound book but has beautiful pages
that can be torn out and used as regular paper!)

April's Stamp of the Month is A-DOR-ABLE!!! I absolutely love this has a message for anything you could need on top of being super cute and trendy. You can get it for just $5 with a $50 purchase on my website.

Here's a card made with this set.

Have a wonderful weekend!
