Thoughts and Prayers and Jar of Love Fall Card
One of my customers and dear friend, Stacy, had a workshop with me and wanted to use the Jar of Love stamp set for her cards we made. As soon as she picked the date I had an idea on how to use this stamp set with a fall theme. When I started making this card it didn't have any texture and I really didn't care for it. I kept thinking, how was I going to make this better? Then I thought about embossing it with one of our folders, but I already had the strips on the left taped down onto the card base. Why not do it with the strips already there. Either it was going to turn out good or really bad. Thank goodness, it was good! Yay! I love how it turned out and so did Stacy. I have used this technique quite a bit since.
To make this card you will need the following products:
Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
- cut at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Crushed Curry Cardstock #131199
- cut at 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Pumpkin Pie Cardstock #105117
- cut at 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Wild Wasabi Cardstock #108641
- cut at 2 1/2" x 4 1/2"
Whisper White Cardstock #100730
- cut at 2 1/4" x 4 1/4"
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
I am not sure if you noticed that I used a piece of the Cajun Craze cardstock the same size as the front of the card. If you would like, you can emboss the front panel of the card instead of adding an extra piece of paper.
When you are stamping the stems, the one on the left is stamped using the whole stamp. However, on the right I didn't ink up about 1/2" of the stem on the bottom of the stamp. This will give you two different heights of the flowers and still keep them within the jar. The water in the jar was made using Soft Sky ink and stamping it off first on a scrap piece of paper before stamping on your card front. You want to make sure that it is light, but that you can still see it.
I stamped one stem of the flowers in the inside of the card on the bottom left hand corner and on the envelope. I used Stampin Dimensionals to pop up the stamped image and the Wild Wasabi cardstock. To complete the card I added a triple loop bow using the Linen Thread.
