My lovely mother grows and amaryllis every year.  When I am there for the holidays I always gaze at it in wonder. They are so gorgeous!  So, when I saw this set, I knew I had to have it so I could make this card for her.  SHHHHH, don't tell her.  

I looked up images of amaryllis to decide how I wanted to color it and that is how I started this card, by stamping on Copic friendly paper and coloring.  Once I had them colored like I wanted I needed something to put them in, so I die cut this pot from Lawn Fawn in gold paper with an extra bit so I could pop out the pot lip.  I cut a bit in brown and tucked it in the top of the pot and colored it like there was dirt inside.  Then I put my flowers in the pot.  I tied a bit of ribbon around it and set it aside. Then I stamped this background stamp from The Stamp Market on white paper and used My Wow Embossing Powder. Once that was done, I die cut that layer using my deckle edge die from Honey Bee.  I mounted my pot on the layer and mounted the layer on white cardstock. 

I have to say, I love the combo of gold and (not quite) red.  The flower shape against the diamond pattern.  I do a lot of cute and not a lot of chic or floral, so I am happy to have changed it up. 

I made this as a make and take for my crafty friends at our last get together and instead of copics provided zigs and the images stamped on watercolor paper.  So fun!

The Amarillis flowers are beautiful and the golden flower pot and background just makes this card even more amazing.
