Potted Easter Mum...pull up for scripture

I love Easter and sending Easter cards (I wish had time to make more). Easter is such a special season. Christmas is so big...and full of hype...and reminds us of the miracle of Christ's birth, but Easter was His biggest victory and ours- for those who believe.

This card was done with nearly exclusively "The Stamps of Life" but the scripture is from my old, beloved Printworks (Annette Allen Watkins) I used an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of cardstock - sliced in 1/2 long ways...a couple of inches cut off and then folded in thirds with the last third trimmed a few inches for the flap. It depends on how big you want your pot to be.

A book mark shaped piece to "plant" in the pot is perfect. I use the Scotch glue runner to seal the pot on the sides. A hidden scripture can be pulled up and out to reveal the meaning of Easter.

NOTE: Be sure to check that your pot is envelope friendly. I had to use my clear envelopes - cute by costly to send.

I hope you enjoy your Easter celebration.
