Can I say 'still having fun with my Silhouette'...had a request from a co-worker for a Retirement card. Wanted to try something a little different so I used a file on my Silhouette designed by Lori Whitlock. This cute little flower pot card really appealed to me and I have been itchin to try making one. I had to change the scale as I wanted it larger, but hey that isn't a problem with the Silhouette. Then I didn't care for the flowers that came with the set, I thought they were a little to one dimensional for my taste, but fortunately I had another Lori Whitlock file on had for a 3-D flower. A little resizing with my mouse, manipulating with my stylus, layering and some blooms were formed! To fill in spaces I punched some MS branches, and some leaves and shaped them and added them around, then I added a few flowers from Recollections. No flower pot would be complete without a little lady bug.
The box in the background is the 'envelope' as these blooms are for sure 3-D. So much fun to make.
