Flower Pot Card with hidden greeting - Trimcraft DT

Hello, over at +Trimcraft Ltd we have a brand new card shape of the month to play with and it’s perfect for Mother’s Day.  I have used the lovely Painted Blooms papers and the First Edition nesting blooms dies to create the flowers.  The flowers lift out to reveal the message.

Step By Step:
  1. Follow the Trimcraft Card Shape of the Month instructions (by Maxine) here: which includes the template to create the flower pot card base.
  2. Use Painted Blooms paper to cover the front of the plant pot and ink around with a brown ink to define the shape.
  3. Stamp the Dovecraft clear stamp ‘To the World you are a Mother…’onto the stalk tab section using black ink and allow to dry.
  4. Create flowers from Painted Blooms papers in the 6x6 pad by diecutting with the FE Nesting Blooms shapes.  Snip into each flower shape and glue 1 petal on top of 1 other to create a shaped flower with 5 petals instead of 6.  Layer up some flowers using 3D foam pads.
  5. Add extra detail to flower centres by cutting them from white glitter card and adding fringe paper to them. 
  6. Cut leaves from green FE Textured card using the FE Nesting Blooms dies and cutting into individual petals.  Score a line down each, ink edges and shape using a pokey tool or pencil.  Snip some leaves in half to create smaller ones.
  7. Arrange flowers and leaves as desired and glue into place on the circle top of the sentiment tab, leave to dry.
  8. Add ‘with love’ ribbon to front of plant pot.  Die cut 2 tag shapes using FE tags dies and stamp ‘Best Mum’ on to white tag using Dovecraft clear stamp.  Add tags to plant pot along with a pink adhesive gem.
  9. To finish, add pink adhesive gems to flower centres and slide sentiment stem / flowers into plant pot.
