Get in Shape card.

This flowerpot pocket card looks so pretty. 

The flowers are from a digital pre-printed file for another kind of project, but works really well for this.
I made the flower pot by partly embossing with a basketweave EFolder, and swiping over with white chalk ink and brown pigment ink to highlight the weave.  The card is folded in two and a half panels with one edge of the half panel punched.  It is cut into a flowerpot shape, sides taped, then decorated with a ribbon band, foliage, and cut out flowers.  A toning butterfly with kindyglitz dusting on it's wings added.  The garden label is diecut and handwritten on. 

The Insert card is shaped to fit, then the rest of the flowers added with a  ribbon bow tied through a punched hole in the top (for easy pulling out).  A packet of pansy seeds goes in the pocket as well.
I watched a youtube tutorial, and then just customised it for me.
