Flowers for Mom - Flower Pot Pocket Card

Flower Pot Pocket Cards have been floating around the web for some time, and I thought they'd be perfect to use with Heartfelt Creations Flora Grande and Distressed Leaves Sets.  Speaking of Heartfelt Creations, don't forget to stop by this post or the HC Company Blog and leave a coment for your chance to win the Springtime Cardinal Release!  I'm going to make another one of these, but make it a tad wider so the inside pull out can accommodate a Gift Card - then it will be perfect for Mother's Day Gift giving!

All papers are from My Minds Eye Stella and Rose Collection.  The Flora Grande flowers are stamped in Soft Suede on the pattern paper, then cut with Spellbinders Blossom 3 Die, all edges are sponged, then the smaller flower is popped up on top of the larger for added dimension, a Recollections Glitter Brad added to the center.  The leaves are stamped in Suede on Celery card stock, then cut with Spellbinders Nested Leaves die.

The top portion of the pot is crimped, then I added a scallop edge using Heartfelt Creations Butterfly-Border Die.  I dyed some seam binding using Rangers Walnut Distress Stain, added the stamped sentiment and a Build-a-Brad.
