First Project with Cricut Explore Air

Hello, crafters! It's Grace from Grace Notes for Today. I'm happy to share my first card made with the help of Design Space and my new Cricut Explore Air. 

Flower Pot Pocket Card

For the pot, I created my own template. After checking some similar styles online, I found that I didn't like the shape or smaller sizes. There are several flower pots available on cartridges but again, I wanted a cuff that I could decorate.

Details

Size:  The pot, full length before gluing sides is 11 inches long, 4-1/2" wide.
Flowers: 1 @ 2.79"w, 1 @ 2.89"w, 1 @ 2"W. Flowers are all from Forever Young.
Name plate on pot: Cut from Heritage, name was written with Explore Air. Attached with silver heart brads.
Butterfly:  Butterfly from Imagine More Cards, cut at 1.7"

I stapled a piece of green ribbon at the top, to indicate that the flower card needs to be pulled out. For the message on the card, I used the writing feature in Design Space. Sorry I don't remember what fonts as I tested many.
