Michael's has a spot near the front of the store where they have sale items. Sometimes I buy a rubber stamp or some ink. Last time I bought some blank cards with matching envelopes. Six for a dollar! Just what a craft hoarder needs to find! I have to use some things up so I won't feel bad buying more junk...I mean, craft projects...next visit.
I had some wooden half pots from my friend Cheri from at least 7 years ago. I cut some strips from a remnant of green card stock with an X-acto knife. I free-handed some leaves, but I am no artist, so let's call them "rustic"
I had some stickers with daisies and a few ribbon flowers with pearls. Sooo cute.
First I glued the pot on the blank card. This will have to be a hand delivered card. I don't think it will go through the mail. I glued a few "stems" leaving enough room for the big daisies. Then I added a few "leaves". I have enough "quotes" to write a "term paper"
Peel and stick daisies. Easy peasy. There was some left over moss from a long ago project. (Thanks Cheri!)
I cut it up, spread a little glue inside the pot and stuffed in the moss. The X-acto blade helped to position it and to push the moss into the glue. I had a baby wipe from cleaning a rubber stamp to clean off the Exacto knife. Don't try this at home. VERY sharp.
A "thanks" stamp with colored ink and a bit of cutting with a pair of fancy scissors looked rather bland on the white card stock. So I used a yellow marker to outline it.
Next I used a Sizzix cut out of a clay pot. I bent it a bit before gluing so that it was three dimensional. Then I used more of the stems and leaves. When I went to peel the ribbon flowers off the backing, they stuck and the little glue dot/foam thingy, tore. No problem. I just added a dot of liquid glue and stuck it down. Now I know why they were on sale for $1!
