Hello there! I couldn't wait to share this lovely card made with the Jar of Love/Everyday Jars Bundle. I found it on the SU! site and had to make it. Actually I made 8 of them. My sister is opening a boutique in Virginia and wanted to put our cards and candles in it, so we've been busy getting them ready. We're going to put our website on hold for now and see how things go. I started with a Flirty Flamingo base, one of the new In Colors, in case you're not familiar with it yet. I ran it through the Big Shot using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder. On top of that I added a layer of Whisper White Cardstock and stamped it 3 times with one of the greenery images using Mint Macaron ink.

I made the larger flowers with Peekaboo Peach,  stamped off for the base, and used full strength for the centers. I did the same with the smaller flowers using Flirty Flamingo ink. I used Mint Macaron for the stamens~is that what they're called? I stamped the stems with Mint Macaron & Emerald Envy, another new In Color, and cut them all out with the Everyday Jars Framelits. I positioned them where I wanted them and adhered with Liquid Tombow. I added the flowers with Dimensionals.

The original card had 'congrats' on the front, but I didn't have the set they used or a good alternative, so I put it on the inside, and used the retired set Bravo for the sentiment. I stamped it with Whisper White Craft ink onto Crumb Cake Cardstock, and heat-embossed it with White Embossing Powder. I used the Banner Triple Punch to notch out the sides. I also didn't have the 1/8" Gold Ribbon that they used, so I substituted the retired Soft Sky. I adhered the ends of the ribbon to the back of the white cardstock with SNAIL and added a bow with a Glue Got. I attached a piece of one of the new Delicate White Doilies to the back of the sentiment and attached with Dimensionals.

I fell in love with this sweet romantic card as soon as I saw it, and I hope my sister will be happy to be getting some of these for her new shop. This is such a fun bundle to work with and one of my favorites from the new catalog...one of many unfortunately:) I'm so excited to be getting another fun bundle tomorrow called Thoughtful Branches. Stay tuned as I'll be sharing some projects made with this limited-time offer. Thanks so much for stopping by:)


  1. What a great idea to use the flowers without the jar! I love the color combo? Where in Virginia is your sisters shop?

  2. Thanks so much Cathi! It's in Salem, called Bella Luna:)
