Mother's Day Flower Pots

These little flower pot cards are for my mother and sisters for Mother's Day. I got this idea from SCS "try a new techique". The tutorial for this techique can be found Here.

I alway try to make a unique card to send to my mother and sisters for Mother's Day and when I saw this I knew it was the one.

For this one I used kraft cardstock already embossed from Lasting Impressions for the base and dark chocolate for the top rim where I heat embossed a flourish with some clear embossing powder. I used rub-ons for the Happy Mother's Day for all the cards which I found a few years ago at Big Lots. All the flowers I used were purchased at Target a while back. I used the smaller version of these flowers on cards but these large ones I just thought were way to big to go on a card until now. I am some happy to finally find a use for them since I don't scrapbook.

For these next two cards I used the same embossed kraft cardstock for the rim and versamark ink to add the leaves from the Wedding Day set to the pot. I just pulled off some leaves from a punch of silk flowers to add to the back of the flowers.

I hope my mother and sisters enjoy them as much as I did making them.

Stamps: Wedding Day, Autumn Leaves Swirls
Ink: Versamark
Paper: Lasting Impressions embossed kraft carstock, spring moss, dark chocolate, aqua mist
Other: Making Memories rub-ons, flowers and leaves from stash, pearls, scalloped scissors
