Potted Plants Card

Hello Blogger Friends. Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life this Saturday in May. 

It's Memorial Day weekend and typically this one is billed as the start of summer. With the stay at home orders still in effect it doesn't seem like the usual holiday. Our community has canceled the local celebration we normally have. 

But, our neighborhood is planning something small. The person who organized it has asked us all to decorate our front lawns with flags. They have a parade planned around the streets in our neighborhood. This is how it should be done. If our local officials won't honor our veterans, then it's up to us to pick it up.  Of course we will keep the social distancing order in place so we won't run into any issues. 

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog. For my card today, I am featuring the new Potted Plants die and created a thinking of you card for a friend. So let's get started with some details on how I created my card.

Design Steps:
I used this older sketch I had saved on one of my Pinterest boards for the card layout. I thought the 3 circles would work well to highlight the potted plants. 
Next, I chose the designer papers. I have a pack of watercolored backgrounds that have been a favorite go to for me lately. I love the colors they have blended together in this pack.

I cut the potted plants in various colors of bright Stampin'-Up cardstocks. I used the circle set (4th smallest) to cut my circles from the leftover piece of designer paper.

Stamped my sentiment with grape ink on a 1" x 4 1/8" piece of lemon-lime cardstock. I thought this particular sentiment was a good accompaniment for the plant images.
Now that all the elements are cut, I am ready for card assembly.
I attached the images and sentiment panel using double sided tape.
To finish off my card, I attached the image panel to the card base and then scattered a few purple glitter enamel dots. And, that's it for me for this post. So until next time.......God bless.
