Morning everyone, here's another card with my icecream girl stamp for Kadoodle, this time I've made a cute little flower pot card which I found in blogland, a very kind lady had uploaded the directions to make it, I can't at the moment find the blog to give you the dimensions but as soon as I do I'll update this post or if anyone in the meantime knows her blog if you could let me know. I think this was also posted on SCS as one of their technique challenges. Thank you anyway for the inspiration, your design is gorgeous, I'll definitely be making more of these, they're so easy and a bit different. Apart from all that I watercoloured my girlie with distress inks, cut her out and attached to the base which after folding I embossed with a CB folder, sanded, tied closed with the ribbon and added the sentiment. The insert card is decorated with flowers and just pops into the flower pot at the top. The whole card is held together simply with the ribbon. TFL. Chris x
