Flower pot change of address cards

Last night some friends came to craft. It was great to have some time with them! I worked on my change of address cards. I had one all planned out that used Heart and Home in red and black. Then I surfed SCS for a little while in the afternoon and saw the flower pot card-- I loved it. I have done these once before, for thank you cards. I still had some of the So Saffron grosgrain from SAB-- that is the prettiest ribbon. I used the Big Shot first for Daisies but they didn't look exactly right --one size was too big, one was too small. The Flower Burst embosslit looked better. I wanted dimension so I sponged the white flowers with So Saffron and the So Saffron flowers with Pumpkin Pie. The leaves behind them are punched with the 5 Petal Punch with my last sheet of Wild Wasabi. The tag is punched (and printed, because I didn't have a stamp that says "we've moved") and the info is printed as well (covered up of course because ANYONE can see it on the web!). Now I can address envelopes and send these out, hoping the people will realize they have to pull the flowers up to reveal the card with our new address!!

  1. Julia, Love these cards. Did you finally get tired of the old neighbors? Please let me know your new address so I can continue to send you a Christmas card. I really miss your classes, but am having fun with Sharon Bridwell here in Texas.
