Jar of Flowers Birthday Card for the Sisterhood of Crafters

Hello, Stampers!

We have a new challenge at the Sisterhood of Crafters – “April Showers Bring May Flowers” and is hosted by our Sistah Darlene. I chose the May Flowers part of that lovely expression because I don’t enjoy the rain LOL! Although it’s very necessary, I sure prefer the sun and results that showers bring us. So, for my card today, I came across the Jar of Flowers stamp set while reorganizing my craft room for the new catalog stuff last week and knew that it needed to get a little love. Luckily it survived the retirement cut so it’s still available if you’re interested.

Once you finish here, I hope you visit our Sisterhood of Crafters Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along before the deadline of May 8th!

My secrets to making this project

  • Firstly, I created the card base with a 12″ x 6″ piece of white cardstock, then scored at 6.”
  • After that, I cut off the right side of the card front at the 3″ score line.
  • Then, I cut a piece of the pretty Symbols of Fortune DSP to 5-1/2″ square and layered it onto Smoky Slate cardstock and adhered it to the inside of the card.

Now, the FUN Part!

  • After the card base was complete, I stamped both the tulip bouquet and jar stamps. Then, I began to color the flowers and leaves with Stampin’ Blends (all listed below except the new In Color Sweet Sorbet) till they were a nice bold color to make them pop off the background.
  • Then, I fussy cut the flowers and punched out the jar with the coordinating punch.
  • To make the background, I first cut out the Ornate Layers rectangle and then layered it with more of the designer paper.
  • Before I popped the flowers and jar down with dimensionals, I wrapped the jar with Smoky Slate baker’s twine and tied a sweet little bow.
  • Then, for the sentiment, I chose two from Peaceful Moments stamp set and inked them up with black ink. After that, I cropped them out with the Scalloped Contours die and popped it up with dimensionals, also.
  • Finally, I added Classic Matte Dots to the tulips in black and and Smoky Slate to the sentiment.

I’m submitting this card to the following challenges:
