I chose to give dimension by using the Pop-Up Flower Pot Card tutorial. I just have to add a little message explaining how to slip the bellyband over it when it's open, and then it's ready to mail tomorrow. I used DOX inks for the flowers on some coloured cardstock, the centres are punched from one of my tomato paste tubes. I added a butterfly from the pot on my desk of pre-coloured and cut ones, a little tag on the pot (embossed with SU's basket weave and lightly buffed with some luster rub-on from Craft-T) and a banner sentiment, popped up on the left side with foam tape, and un-attached on the right so that the belly-band can slide under it and keep the card open. It folds flat for mailing. Oh yes - the green base was stamped with an IO Lace backgrounder just ot make it a bit more interesting.

This is AWESOME. I can imagine how delighted she will be to open this. Love all the flowers and bright colors. And being a pop-up just makes it more fun and cheerful. Love that lace stamped bg on the green too. Fabulous card.
