Flower Pot Card

This year for Mother's Day I decided to try my hand at a flower pot card.  I had seen these in a couple different places, but I based mine off of this Youtube video that did a wonderful job stepping out the whole process for me.  I do not have Stampin' Up supplies like she used, so I just improvised and made similar files in my SCAL2.  I used bright and cheery colors which I love! This has quite a bit of dimension, so I decided it would be best to give them to my Mom and Mother-in-law in person instead of mailing them.  Plus it will be fun to see their expressions when they see it!
The card is actually attached to the flowers.  They pull out of the flower pot so the inside message can be read.
Here is the card taken out of the pot with the envelope I made out of coordinating paper that I have had in my stash for a long time just waiting for the perfect use!
 And a cloesup of the embossed details on the flowers.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
