This is the card we will be doing tonight at Stamp Club.
Fold your card, small flap forward and bottom flap backward. Scallop the small flap that will be the front of the card. Hold the front flap down and roll or stamp your background stamp on the top of it. Open the top flap and keep the back flap folded. Place on the cutter. With the 2" score line of the flap at the cutting marker and the bottom of the card at the 1/2" marker, cut. You are cutting through two pieces of card stock so you will have to use pressure when cutting. If it doesn't cut all of it use your scissors to finish the cut. Do this on both side and this is how you get the flower pot shape. Use glue dots to hold the small flap down. Now you see the flower pot shape with the scallop edge in front. There are several ways you can keep it closed. I used brads, you can close it with ribbon. Place your pocket piece in the card, placing in the middle. The punch holes for brads if you are using brads. You can place the small creamy caramel piece on the front of the 2" scalloped piece. Now place your pocket piece inside the card, flower pot. Place a pop dot in the middle very close to the top of flower pot. Assemble you flowers together. Make sure you only place adhesive on the middle of the flower, you don't want adhesive on the petals. Now place one of the flowers on the pop dot. Then place pop dots on the inside pocket part and then place your flower on top of them. Remember to place pop dots on the pocket part not the flower so you can place your flower where you want them to go. They will stick put from the pocket. If you place the pop dots on the flower you won't be able to place them correctly on the pocket. Try and hide all of the pocket part.
