Mother's Day Flower Pot Card

Here's my Mother's Day design for this year - a flower pot card! These cute flower pots were all the rage a few years ago but I never actually made one.  This year I finally got around to figuring it out.  They are actually super easy to make.  I did a web search for "flower pot card tutorials" and after looking at a few, I changed the measurements a bit to suit me and also to have it fit inside the Australian sized C6 envelopes we carry.

I've used the 2013-2015 In Colours which are about to retire.  Baked Brown Sugar is the flower pot base and the other four colours are in the flowers and leaves.  I also created a matching Petite Purse using the big shot die.

The measurements of the flowerpot base is 9 1/2" x 4".  Turn to landscape position and 
score at 1 1/2", then again at 5 1/2".  
Fold the smaller flap forward and the bigger part in the opposite direction to create the flowerpot.  Use the paper trimmer to cut off about 1 cm on the diagonal to create the shape.
The insert is 3" x 4 3/4"and the flowers are attached with dimensionals at the top so they sit nicely on the outside of the flowerpot rather than disappearing into it.
