Feel Better Soon

Hi, friends! What does the camel say?! Lol, you know that one! A new challenge is live over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #48 – July Anything Goes! Those who know me know that I REALLY love fun folds – so I created a pop-up flower pot get well card to showcase this month! I’m proud to say that this design is my own! I did attempt another pop-up flower pot card I found a tutorial on a few months back and let’s just say it didn’t go as planned, lol, so I designed a more sturdy and more simple construction.

After creating the flower pot which is a ‘box’ design that folds flat, I used two flower punches along with a leaf punch and a variety of bright-colored cardstock to create 13 flowers and leaves. There are 12 flowers for the pot and one for the belly band. I added a green Dot Sparkler to the center of each flower and arranged a panel of six flowers for each side, gluing them down as I went.

I created two gingham bases with magnets. The flower pot and sentiment are affixed to the main base which folds flat for mailing. The second base is constructed of 110# kraft cardstock and attaches to the main base to hold it open for display.

And here’s one more look with the card folded flat (held with a belly band) ready for mailing. Love how this turned out and will definitely add my template with instructions to the ‘freebies’ section on my blog!
