August is here already…how fast is this summer going? I guess that means we are all having fun, because that’s when time flies! The Holiday Catalog has been released to demonstrators and it is chock full of wonderful products but my card today will tell you that I am still very much in summer mode. I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches #246 challenge…
The card base is Whisper White thick cardstock with a mat of Daffodil Delight and a pattern from the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper.
A band of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon gives some texture as well as a little vintage charm.
The jar is stamped in Soft Suede ink and cut with the Everyday Jars framelits with a window sheet added to create the look of a glass jar. I popped it up with the new Foam Adhesive Strips.
The butterflies, from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set are stamped in Basic Black and colored with Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write markers. They’re easily punched with the Bitty Butterfly punch. Using mini glue dots to adhere them allowed their wings to lift from the card for a 3-D effect. The jar lid is stamped in Real Red ink.
The inside sentiment is from the Designer Tin of Cards stamp set and is stamped in Real Red ink.
These sweet little butterflies can now fly out of the jar and enjoy the rest of the summer too!
I hope that you are having a wonderful summer and will stop back again soon!
