A REALLY Long Card!!!

Here's something that is TOTALLY out of my element. Long cards!!! This is not one of the long notes from Stampin' Up! It's a BIG piece of card stock! The card stock was cut 8" x 9 1/4" and folded in half to measure 4" x 9 1/4".

Click on the photo to enlarge the image. I used the new papers from Stampin' Up! I also used the Coluzzle to make the circles. I stamped the flower from "Doodle That" and the pots are painted wooden planters. They come already cut in half. I mixed the paint until I got it the color I needed. The dots were added to the pots using a gel pen. I added some vanilla grosgrain ribbon and then placed the circles. Once I got them on I had a lot of trouble deciding what I was going to do to fill that large purple area. I began regretting starting a large card like this. After perusing the catalog I found the birthday stamp set and decided I'd use two stamps on the front. Like it's a law to only use one??? LOL I didn't want to add buttons or other embellishments, I wanted to keep the wooden pots the focal point. It wasn't until after I added the words that I finally liked the card! I used a regular legal size envelope which I decorated a bit to go with the card! I'm sure this will cost extra postage to mail because of the wooden pots. Hmmm, I may have to hand deliver this one!!!

Thank you for stopping by!
