I had lots of fun playing with Digi version of Build-A-Flower set. Then I saw this stamp set, I knew I want to have it as digi. I love to play with them and I enjoy entire process...until I have to explain what and how I did... This is most difficult. My language skills are not up to it. But I do my best...

I re-sized images and arranged them in the way as I wanted the end result will be. I printed it out and fussy cut it. Then I traced the outline two times to a white cardstock. After fussy cutting them out I scored one of them about 2 cm on top and covered it above the score line with glue. Two shapes was adhered together to form a card base. Then I turned back to computer, scattered all the images plus extra copy of the pot and printed them. 

Coloring is very simple. I inked the flowers with Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean and Scattered Straw, leaves with Mowed Lawnand and Twisted Citron, and a pot with Vintage Photo and Tea Dye Distress Inks. Flower centers are covered with Medium tip Nuvo Glue Pen and Canary Flocking. I also added some Starfire Glitter with Medium tip Nuvo Glue Pen to the petals. Flowers are not fully adheared. Some of them are glued only from the center to the piece I printed out first, others are adhered with foam tape. 

Flower pot is adhered with narrow strips of foam tape. I placed the tape in three edges. This way it acts like a pocket. Upper part of the pot is cut out seperately and it's adhered from three edges with a glue and foam tape in the bottom center. 
To fit the layer with flowers inside of the pocket, I trimmed the pot part smaller (remebmer it was the first piece I printed. I actually cut it before I adhered flowers on top of it).

Sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and it's heat embossed with Coffee Embossing Powder. 

Same card can be done with rubber set too (it comes with larger and smaller flowers) but you have to make the flower pot yourself. 
This card is quite simple to make. I love the hidden pocket and removable flowers. 

The next stop on our blog hop is Chris.

We hope you enjoy the New Reveal Blog Hop as much as we do.  Thanks for joining us and remember to comment on each of the Designers' blogs to be eligible for the Grand Prize.  

 Wonder who the Mystery Host will be this month????
