Painted Pansies Flowerpot Card!

I have some more painted pansies for you today!  These pansies are cut out of Shimmery White cardstock with the Butterfly punch then watercolored with the Floating Reinker Technique.  They are so very fun to make and I thought a little flowerpot full of them would make a sweet card for someone.  In addition, this card will fit into a standard A-2 envelope (used for a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2" card).

The pansies are attached to a panel that is inserted into the flowerpot and pulls up and out.  This gives a nice space for a stamped greeting as well as a handwritten one too.  They are embellished with Old Olive cardstock leaf stems die cut with the Big Shot and Little Leaves Sizzlet (a favorite of mine!).

These would also be perfectly adorable as a placecard for each woman at a luncheon table!  Simply use a Mini Library Clip to attach a small piece of cardstock with the person's name written on it and lay it on the plate to note their seating at the table.  They could then take it with them and use it themselves to send a note to someone, thereby doing double duty!

Certainly Celery cardstock was cut into a 3.5" x 9" strip, scored 2" from one end, then 5.5" from that same end.  The 2" section was trimmed with a decorative edge punch (Scalloped Border) and layered with Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper that had been cut to size and scalloped also.  The base of the flowerpot was stamped with the Sanded background stamp in Certainly Celery Ink.  The 2" portion was folded downward (mountain fold) and the other end was folded up (valley fold).  Measure in 1/2" from the bottom fold of the flowerpot and cut up at an angle to the top (both layers) where the 2" score line is to make the bottom more narrow.  A length of Old Olive Striped Grosgrain was tied around the flowerpot top.  No adhesive was used on it except a smidge on the back to hold the ribbon in place.  All products by Stampin' Up!

I have a previous pansy card posted on May 15th, here with more information.

Hope you enjoyed the card.  Thanks for dropping by today; I appreciate it!

Have a wonderful weekend!
