I am a real flower addict as you know, and I have enjoyed playing with our flower themed dies so much. Today’s card uses the flowerpot die (SD025) and make sure you run it through the machine a couple of times for each pot as cutting off the top rim and decoupaging it makes such a difference to the 3D effect on the card. It helps to add a bit of distressing to the sides of the pots too, but not essential.
The brick backing paper comes from one of our popular sets of backing papers – in this case volume 2, which has lots of flowery/nature/outdoor related papers. The beige backing piece is cut out by hand with a bit of distressing added to 'rough' it up a bit!
The stars of the show though are the delphiniums and the lavender – SD282 and SD286. Here the delphiniums are pale blue but you could mix in a darker blue and likewise with the lavender, we went for a pastel shade here but you could go much for a darker purple if you prefer.
The great thing about ‘pots’ of flowers is that, given the basic flowerpot diecuts, you can ‘plant’ anything you like in them and then you have a great start to a card design!
