I finally got my Friendship Jar set and made a card I think I will keep just for me! I love the colors on this card. I was drawn to the cover of Better Homes and Gardens magazine this month. I love the colors of the beautiful summery tablecloth. I decided to try to duplicate the tablecloth with stamps I already own. Background Basics Tin type and raspberry fizz ink was the first paper I stamped. Next I used some Lemon Tart paper with fresh snow polka dot basics. Third, I used Lemon tart paper again and stamped some flowers from Beautiful Blooms II in Hibiscus Burst and Orange Zest. I embossed a white flower onto the pink one so that the white would pop out. A Simply Chartruese leaf shaded with copics finished this layer. Lastly, I used Summer Sunrise paper and the smallest flower from In Bloom in Orange Zest and shaded it with copics and a black marker. I cut small squares from each pattern, adhered it to a white panel and stitched around the edges. At this point, the card sat in my craft room waiting for the jar set to arrive. Waiting. Waiting. Finally it arrived and I cut the jar in Clear cardstock, used black stazon to stamp it and die cut it with the new die. The ruffle is from the yellow polka dot paper and the stems are just little strips of ripe avocado paper. I used some Martha Stewart Zinnia stickers for the flowers and the small label that comes with the jar set to cover up the adhesive on the jar. Wow, that was a lot of steps for a card I plan to keep myself. I really love the jar set cut out in clear cardstock. It really does look like a real jar when you can see through it.
