Imaginisce fun!

This cute little flower pot card has been around for a while but I just had to make one for my cousin. She is struggling through a rough recovery after back surgery and I thought this delightful little pop out bouquet would be the perfect fun card to brighten her day!

I created the little pocket flower pot using the instructions shown here. I used my Cricut Expression and Walk in my Garden cartridge to cut the flowers, leaves and tools. I love the layer feature on the Gypsy to line up my flower layers so I know exactly what I am getting before I cut! It is also a great way to flip some of the leaves so I can see how they will align in my project before I cut them out.


Making sure a large heart was centered in the punch, I created flower centers using my i-top. I added a bit of sparkle and detail using my i-rock and bling. To add the sentiment and lady bug, I pulled my All Occasion Build-A-Card Pad and cut apart a sentiment sticker. The words fit perfectly at the bottom of the flower pot, and the adorable lady bug is just the perfect touch sitting on top of a flower! I just placed the sticker on a piece of white scrap, then cut around the image and adhered using a pop dot!



I used one of the sentiment blocks for the end of the tools. Another great feature of the Gypsy is that I can place exactly where I want to cut so it takes the guessing game out and makes it much easier when cutting small pieces of paper or scraps!
