Anyone who knows me knows I love to garden so I just had to do this one for my teaser today. Just look at her in her overalls and her Wellies!!! OMGosh--how stinkin' cute is she?! I thought a card holding a package of seeds would be a cute thing to do, but I wanted something a little different with this image. So, I made up a pot shaped card. I drew it free-hand so I don't have a template and I didn't take pictures since I was making it up as I went along. But I'll tell you its a "U" shaped card, not a "V" shaped one. I made two score marks at the top, 1/8" apart, so there would be room inside for the seed package. Hope all that made some sense, LOL. If not, shoot me an email and I'll try to explain it better. I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers. Then I cut her out and popped her up on a little scene with some digi paper from the Sheltering Tree pack and some torn Fossil card stock (did I mention that I love this cardstock!?). Cut that out with a Nestabilities die and the rest was embellishing. I used little flat backed pearls for the seeds. Buttons are from MFT's Summer collection (blue button) and Chocolate Kiss collection (brown buttons). Before I started adding stuff to the base card, I did some shading for the pot rim with Copic markers and sponged on some green distress ink to simulate moss. It shows up better in real life, but I think it could stand to be darker.
Here's the inside--a simple pocket for the seed from patterned paper and a fun sentiment, also from the set.
