Bloomin' Doodles Flower Pot

Stamps: Bloomin' Doodles, Say It In Script (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Card Stock: Really Rust, Old Olive, Riding Hood Red, White
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Copic Markers
Accessories: Threading Water Punch (Fiskars), Swirls Scribbles die, Chocolate Chip 1" Double Stitched grosgrain ribbon, Buttons Latte, White Scrapper's Floss (Karen Foster), Color Spritzer Tool, Ultra Clear Tape/PVA Glue/Mini Glitz (Stix 2), Glue Dots, Scotch foam tape
I've wanted to make a Flower Pot Pocket Card ever since I saw them all over "the net", and recently Stephanie Luman wrote a wonderful tutorial at Splitcoaststampers. I was very much inspired by Beate's video tutorial as well!!

I thought these pretty flowers from Bloomin' Doodles would be wonderful for this card style, so I stamped and colored them. It took a little while to cut them out, but I'm pretty happy with the look I achieved. The leaves are also stamped and trimmed, while the other "greens" are swirls from the Swirls Scribbles Die. The centers of the flowers have some Stix Mini Glitz for added sparkle.

I stamped the inside with the Product of the Week set, Say it in Script (40% off this week).

Thanks for visiting!
