Step by Step
Cut one <Pot> size 1 1/2", using the Shadow and Pot keyboard key for the bottom layer of the pot. I used dark brown cardstock.
Adhere the Pot layers to the bottom left of the card. Make sure to adhere the flower stem underneath the brown top layer of the pot to make it look as if it is planted.
Flower: I chose Flower4 but there are actually different flower cutouts you can choose from.
Cut one <Flower4>, size 1 1/2" using the Flower4 keyboard key for the middle layer of the flower. I used blue cardstock.
Cut one <Flower4>, size 1 1/2" using the Layer and Flower4 keyboard key for the top small layer of the flower. I used a yellow cardstock.
