Announcing Card "Create"tions!!

Good morning, Friends! Another week to begin! It seems we are just flying through these fall days! This past weekend we went over the mountains because Nick had soccer games. We left here on Friday and it was raining pretty good! We made it over no problem but the mountains did get a good amount of snow and when we came back over on Sunday we got to see it! Thankfully the roads were clear and dry but you can definitely see that winter will be coming! I do hope that the mountains get a lot more snow than last year!! 

Today's card was one that I made a few weeks ago. I was trying something a little different and wasn't sure that I like it. I don't hate it but it just didn't wow me - lol! I stamped the jar from Perfectly Preserved in Early Espresso onto a piece of Very Vanilla. This is adhered to a piece of Island Indigo that has the bottom scalloped with the scallop edge border punch. Then I wrapped a piece of Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon around this and tied a bow. I popped this up onto a card base of More Mustard. Then I stamped the jar lid in Island Indigo, the pear in More Mustard and the stem in Early Espresso onto Very Vanilla. I used the Cannery framelits dies to cut them out. I adhered the jar lid and the stem to the card and popped up the pear. Then I stamped the greeting in Island Indigo onto Very Vanilla and punched it out with the small oval punch. I punched a small hole and used the vintage trinkets to attach it to the bow.

  1. It's so funny that the projects we make that we are not crazy about, other people love! Well, I love this project. The simple pear in the jar is adorable, and the embellishments are pear-fect!
