Stand Up Flower Pot Pocket Card

 I made a flower pot card years ago and I have been thinking about making another one with Spring so near.  I played with the flower dies and my flower punches.  I knew I wanted to use the New Berry Basket Bigz Die.  After playing with the Flower Frenzy Bigz Die and the Bouquet Bigz Die, which I really loved, the flowers were just too big for the card.  I did use the Stem Leaves from the Flower Frenzy and the Leaves from the Bouquet Die.  I used the Pansy, Boho Blossoms, Petite Petals, 3-flowers (Retired), 5-Petal (retired) and Bitty Punch Pack (Retired) Punches for the flowers.  I will say if you get the Bouquet Bigz die, you must get the Build a Bouquet Stamp Set there are a lot of stamps in this set.  I was on the fence with this set, but it is great set for flowers and backgrounds.  I used this stamp set for the lines on Berry Basket, the dots on the flowers, and the center for the White and Crisp Cantaloupe Flower.   I meant to stamp the leaves but I forgot.  The Butterfly was used with the New SAB Nature's Perfection Stamp Set.  The little (Bread) Clip is from the Handpicked Framelits.  I love that little clip.  The "Best Buds" is from the Matching Stamp Set From the Garden.  The "One of a Kind" is from a retired Postage Due Stamp Set.

I did use the Kraft Paper for the cardbase because I wanted it to be sturdy.

The great thing about this card is it will fit inside a regular envelope.  I would recommend hand delivering this card or pay for extra postage.

Thanks for stopping by and letting me know what you think!
