Today’s project is a birthday card I made using the Jar of Flowers Bundle (Jar of Flowers stamp set and Jar Punch) and the Many Mates stamp set (available in a bundle with the Many Medallions Dies.) Once I had made the card, I realized I could have used it for the 4th of July blog hop a couple days ago. You can see the card I made for it here. I guess I got my patriotic card mojo a couple days too late. 

I also used the new In Good Taste Designer Series Paper, which is full of amazing designs including carpet, tile, wood, etc. These papers are so incredibly versatile, they make this a must have pack of DSP for everyone. And check out the new 3/8″ Denim Ribbon. If that’s isn’t pure Americana, I don’t know what it.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Real Red card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer cut to 4 x 5-1/4″ (darker wood)
  • In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 2″ x 1″ for the sentiment (lighter wood)
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Jar of Flowers stamp set:

  • jar in black Memento ink onto a scrap of Whisper White Thick CS
  • stems in black Memento ink in jar
  • flowers in black Memento ink onto another scrap of Whisper White Thick CS

Stamped with the Many Mates stamp set:

  • sentiment in Early Espresso ink onto the smaller piece of DSP

Cut using the Jar Punch:

  • jar with stems

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • flowers

Colored using Stampin’ Blends Markers:

  • stems in Old Olive
  • water in jar in Pool Party
  • flowers in Real Red, Night of Navy, and Old Olivx

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • ribbon adhered onto the top of the jar with Stampin’ Seal, wrapped around the jar, and tied in a bow
  • jar and flowers adhered onto the DSP layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • poked a hole in the top two corners of the sentiment using a Take Your Pick Tool (paper piercer attachment)
  • pulled apart a piece of blue/white/silver twine: pulled the silver out of one end, then the blue and white untwist from each other easily
  • threaded the white twine through the two holes in the sentiment and tied both ends in knots on the front
  • sentiment adhered onto the DSP layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • twine pulled over the top of the DSP layer and adhered onto the back using Stampin’ Seal
  • DSP layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
