The Cutting Cafe Blog Hop & Giveaway!

Welcome to The Cutting Cafe blog hop! If you are following along, you should have arrived here from Leah Schaeffer's blog. If you have just happened upon this, you will want to start at the beginning (click here).

I used a great set called the Flower Pot Shaped Card! With Mother's Day coming up, I thought it would be a perfect card.

I used the Prairie Hill collection from Pink Paislee and some Kraft Core cardstock to create my pot and flowers. I added a kraft cardstock centre to a few of the blooms and inked the edges with Walnut Distress ink.

I sanded the edges of the orange flowers and the pot to expose the kraft interior. I printed the sentiment on kraft cardstock and added it to the bottom of the pot.

Leave a comment on my blog and you will have a chance to win the Flower Pot Shaped Card & Sentiment set. I will make the draw and announce the winner on Saturday morning.

From here you will be visiting the very talented Jessica Esch! Make sure you visit all the blogs on the hop because everyone is giving a set away!


Happy hopping everyone :)
