Flower pot pocket card



Hello my crafty friends! I have seen a lot of these flower pot cards lately and am finally getting around to making one myself. It has been on mu to do list for a long time. Somehow, I am really good at making lists but not as good about doing the things on the list...LOL.

(Speaking of lists, wait until you see the new cards with motion and boxes that I am working on. They are sooo cool!)

Back to the flower pot card. Since I am not any good at keeping real plants alive, I figured this was just the thing I needed. It will last so much longer than a real one.

I made a cut file for the card where the fold is on the bottom and tabs on the left and right fold in to form a pocket.




This is an A2 card (5.5 by 4.25). I am thinking of making one a little larger and adding an easel for my sister. She just moved into a new house so this would be a great housewarming card:)

If you do not have a digital cutter and Make the Cut or Sure Cuts A Lot, I am including a PDF. You could also install Inkscape and print any SVG file. Inkscape is a free download that can be found at Inkscape.org.
I love it.
 
THESE FILES HAVE BEEN MOVED TO MY ETSY STORE.
REMEMBER: It takes quite a long time to make cut files and I put a lot of effort into them. I offer the files for free for you to use for PERSONAL use. You can not sell my files or make things to sell using my files unless you ask me. Please give credit where credit is do when you use my files to post projects or to enter challenges. I don't mind sharing, but I do mind when someone takes my work and claims it as their own.
