Pop-Up Flower Pot Card

Hi, Creative People!
Today I'm going to share a tutorial for you on how to make this gorgeous pop-up flower pot card.
As you can see, it fits nicely in an envelope.
There is a band that fits across the base that keeps it closed until you want to pop up the flower pot.

Take the band off, it pops up. If you slide the belly band onto one side of the base, it will hold the card open so it sits flat, as shown below.

 This is a side view of the card.

I'm not even going to begin to pretend that I came up with this design. I totally cased it from the talented Chris Slogar, another Stampin' Up! demonstrator, from her tutorial on Split Coast Stampers. Here is the link to her tutorial complete with a step-by-step video.  

If you don't know about Split Coast Stampers, you need to check it out here.  It is a wonderful resource for card ideas, and there is a Stampin' Up! Gallery with cards listed by the stamp set name used to make them. You just click on Gallery, then Stampin' Up! Galleries.

Now, back to the supplies I used on my card. The base paper is Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper adhered to Lovely Lipstick cardstock. The pot was cut from Old Olive cardstock and embossed it with the Coastal Weave embossing folder.

I used the Daisy Lane stamp set with the coordinating Medium Daisy punch. The daisies were stamp with Sahara Sand on Daffodil Delight, Lovely Lipstick, Flirty Flamingo, and Pumpkin Pie. I stamped 4 of each one and made each daisy using two daisies adhered together, offsetting the petals. A Perennial Essence Floral Center was added to the center of each daisy.
Using the Timeless Tulips stamp set, the tulips were stamped with Sahara Sand on Daffodil Delight, Lovely Lipstick, and Flirty Flamingo cardstock. I stamped 2 of each color of the 2 different size tulips, fussy cut (cut by hand) them out, and adhered 2 together. Before adhering them together, I cut thin 2" strips from Granny Apple Green cardstock and adhered them between the 2 tulips to have something to adhere them to the pot with.  I also stamped 4 of the tulip leaves on Granny Apple Green cardstock, fussy cut, and adhered around the tulips.
10 leaves were punch from Granny Apply Green with the Leaf punch. I folded the leaves down the middle to give them some dimension. 
I hope you like this unique card and will give it a try.  If you do, contact me and let me see your version. I'm listing all the supplies below.
