Birthday Card/Present For My Mom Entered into My Creative Time Throwback Thursday Challenge: Cricut-less

Good Morning!! Yesterday was my mom's XX birthday, she is officially half way to 100!! Since I found that I love making step cards I decided to make her one and I also came across this cute idea in the Paper Crafting Magazine.

What I used:
Flower Pot:

Blue Paint (Old from mom's stash)
Green Paint
Wooden Dowels
Spellbinders Nestabilities: Big Scalloped Circles Large
Felt (Dollarstore)
Buttons: They were my mom's moms buttons
Green paper ran through the paper shreddar
Small Clothes Pins: Dollar Store
Styrofoam Ball cut in half
Hot Glue Gun


K Andrew Design Art Stamps : Owly Hoo "Happy"
                                                    Coffee & Tea For You & Me "Birthday"

We R Memory Keepers Sweetheart Inker: Navy
EK Success Corner Rounder
Spellbinders Nestabilities:Big Scalloped Circles Large
Stickles: True Blue

For the flower pot I painted the pot and the sticks and let them dry. In the mean time I cut and glued all the flowers. I attached the flowers to the sticks and then attached the clothes pin to the back of the flowers. I inserted the sticks into the foam ball and then added the green shredded paper. Added the pictures then I was done!!

The card is a double step card or centre step card which ever you prefer to call it!!

I am entering the card into Emma's Cricut-Less challenge over at My Creative Time

Have A Great Day!!

God Bless!!
