Wow is today Wednesday!!! I was thinking I was ahead of the game and posting this for tomorrow. Mommy brain struck again!! HERE is Wednesday's Card Challenge at Simply Scrapping.
This is the last card in the challenge this month to win the BG Card Kit. I think I may have saved the best for last too! This card is so fun and so easy!! You will see once you've made it, you will make more.
Flower Pot Pocket Card

Credits: Inspired by Linda Heller –> Missy Shipman.
Flower pot: Cut cardstock 3-1/2″ x 9″. Score in landscape position at 2″ and 5-1/2″. Fold the 2″ section toward you and the 5-1/2″ section away from you. Trim the edge of the 2″ section with the Scallop Edge Punch. Here’s what the fold looks like from the side:

To make the front look like a pot, place it in a paper trimmer with the front 2″ flap flipped up. Line up the 2″ score line with the cutting track and the 5-1/2″ fold line with the 1/2″ mark on the trimmer as shown below:

Flip down the cutting guide and cut. Flip the cardstock over and repeat.
Cut 3″ x 4″ piece of DSP for front of pot. Adhere to the front, flip over and trim both sides.
Vanilla ribbon is 14″. Place adhesive in center of ribbon and then attach to center upper back of flower pot and tie around.
Stamp sentiment on cardstock, punch out and attach to ribbon with twine.

Flowers: 2 layers, 1 DSP (3″ x 3″) and 1 cardstock. Attach a smidge of adhesive between squares of dsp and cardstock before running thru the Big Shot to keep them together. Leaves are Kiwi Kiss cardstock punched with 5-Petal Flower punch and then cut apart. Attach the leaves to the dsp flower by slightly pulling back the dsp and adhering them behind it.
Flower w/ button: Punch out 3/4″ DSP circle, attach to clear button with glue dot, attach button to flower with glue dot.

Use dimensionals to attach flowers to the top of pull out card. Pull Out Card: Cut brown cardstock 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″. Cut White cardstock 2-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.
