Desmae's Birthday - Card 1 - Flower Pot

Hi there. Do you like the "New Look"? I felt a change was in order. I wanted to make my Blog a little smarter; as well as more appealing to read. I hope I have succeeded - you'll have to let me know.
I have added a direct contact e-mail link as well as my personal Blog List which contains sites I constantly go to when my creative Mojo is on a break! There are one or two other little changes you might spot. There maybe a space at the top of my Blog for a few days; this is because I am adding a feature here and Google (who governs the Blogger templates and processes) needs to approve this before it can go ahead.

I have promised to show you these cards before. I have THREE to show you. However I will add them to my Blog as Three separate posts otherwise it'll be too long and may prove unreadable. So grab a cup of your favourite beverage for all three coming your way!

I think it is OK to go ahead today and show them to you as we present these cards to the Birthday Girl - Desmae this evening at her 70th Party.  I suspect (and hope) she'll be far too busy to come and look here before she receives them.

This first card is a Flower Pot card. The template instructions to make this can be found at Splitcoast Stampers and there is a YouTube video tutorial as well.
Here it is:

I have placed my pictures on coloured backgrounds so that you can see them a little better.

I used Kaisercraft weave Card stock - Papaya as my card base, then followed the instructions on the Tutorial links I provided above.

I trimmed the edge with a Martha Stewart Deco Fan Punch.

As you can see the Flower Pot and the Tag that goes into it are two separate pieces.

The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon "Happy Halloween" September 2012 Subscription pack and fits beautifully.

The "Friends" embellishment is part of a set from K&Company - Brenda Walton - Chelsea Word, they are now out of print  ... I have had them for ages and thought I'd use them.

I also added a Gold "Happy Birthday" Peel off.

The tag fits into the top of the "pocket" created by how the card base is folded.
The Flowers we die cut with Spellbinders Layered Flowers S4-355 and some Stampendous Stickers from my stash adhered on the top of the Design Paper scraps that I used.

The leaves were cut our using Spellbinders Nested Leaves S4-321 (which I cannot see on any web site currently!!).

The base of the tag was the same used for the card base and the Tag in the centre was from KaiserCraft Collectables - Magnolia Grove Die Cuts.

Last image for this card I did deviate from the original instructions by adding a little stand for the card on its reverse.

There you have it - a relatively easy card to make that looks really effective.

Ingredients for this card:

I hope you are keeping well. Thanks for stopping by to look at Desmae's cards. I'll post the other two as soon as I can. I Just need to go and make preparations to go and celebrate with her!
