Flowerpot Card

Digi Choosday challenge week 30 starts today. There is a great prize up for grabs and you can get a MASSIVE 35% off their digital images for today. You can find full details  and discount code on their blog Polkadoodles Digi Choosday

Our design brief for this weeks challenge was a summery fun card using an animal image and a specific colour palette. 

For the image I used the Horace and Boo Sleepy Pots digital stamp. My Inspiration came from chasing our naughty puppy out of the strawberry planters my daughter had lovingly maintained during lockdown. Our 4 legged furry friend ate every last piece of fruit, which of course was met by sobs from Martha. 
He them climbed into the flower bed and went to sleep in the sun without a care in the world, leaving me to make a mad dash to the local shop for strawberries to try an ease the tears!

This is a top fold card and I have created a template for the plant pot. It is available here as a PDF. Feel free to use it but please don't share it, direct people here for it to access it for themselves. The more traffic I get the better :)

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Supplies used

Mint, pale pink and coral paper 
Beige a4 card
Plant pot template Template pdf
Polkadoodles Sparkle collection sentiments (I purchased it as part of this collection but the sentiments can be purchased separately here)
Flower die
Distress ink in tattered rose 
Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers


Using the flowerpot template the shape was cut in the beige A4 card

The sleepypots image was printed and coloured using Spectrum Noir markers

The image was glued onto the flower pot 

I die cut a number of flowers in a mixture of greens, pinks and corals and glued them together each with a sequin centre. These were arranged around the image 

The sentiment was die cut and blended using distress ink in tattered rose

And was glued onto a larger nested piece of mint green card. This was then added to the front of the flower pot.

This has been entered in the following challenges
