Where's spring?

A few weeks ago we had the best weather and then it SNOWED!
I am itching for sunshine and green grass, but it's all snow here.
I made a flower pot slider card, just to brighten things up!
1. Take a quarter fold, landscape card {4 1/4 X 11 inches}  and score it at the 1 1/2, 5 1/2 and 9 1/2 inch marks.
2. Fold the card in half { 5 1/2 mark} and trim the card from the score line to the fold tapering in 1/2 and inch. your excess will look like a triangle on both left and right side.
3.  Use a 2 X 6 inch piece on DP to wrap around the tapered body of the card securing it on the back of the card and creating a "pouch". I suggest leaving 1/4 inch between the fold and the DP.
4. Fold down the scored flaps above you DP. This is the rim of your "flower pot"decorate it as you like. I used 1 1/4 X 4 inch piece of DP and twine. I also stamped and cut out a sentiment for the front.
5. Cut a piece of card-stock 4X5 for this insert and punched the long side with a scalloped edge punch before decorating with flowers.
