Carolina Girl (Cely)
Buying this Elizabeth Craft Flower Pot Stand Die Set was a big splurge.  I thought it would be a quick card...NOT!  Now that I have made "one", I'm sure the next one will go more smoothly.  (Karen's video made it look so easy...haha)

It's the first day of Fall, so mums and pansies popped into my head.  This is my attempt at a pansy facsimile.  I left the flowers flat knowing it would be mailed.  I made a boo boo in cutting the base, so as not to waste the cardstock, I placed 2 pansies on the base behind the flower pot.  Do you think I got away with the boo boo?

Hummm...wonder if there are any challenges out there to join?


A7, left off the center dot...oops...added after pic

Ready for the unvailing?  Opening....

Ta Da...I also added a dragonfly along with the two butterflies
Liquid Pearls were added to flower centers and butterfly bodies, along with wire for butterfly antennas 

Flowers on base covering my two boo boos.  The die requires the flower pot to be closer to the front of the card...not the center, so if nothing else, I think the 2 pansies balanced out the base.

    I can tell from the photos that is was a lot of work to put together, but well worth it. It's gorgeous. Just got back from Panama City Beach and playing catch up.


  6. Gorgeous card Cely! I also wondered why it took so long to make! Lol:) I think the flowers on the base are a perfect addition!

    No way would I attempt this.. But so glad you did so I can enjoy seeing this work of art. Wow.. I don't see any mistakes. Love it.


  8. I think they balanced it out, but also added a little extra. Maybe those flowers got pinched and fell off onto the card base.

    The recipient will sure get a surprise when he/she opens it up! Really pretty! I doubt you made four of those! :)
