Sorry for going missing for so long! I was in Kansas City, MO, with my younger daughter for a week helping her to get her room ready for another school year teaching Pre – K at the Forerunner Christian School in Kansas City! I then got home just in time to start my long term substitute elem. music job. I worked with K-5 everyday on a 6 day rotation cycle, so I saw every class twice within that rotation cycle. I also had to get the 5th graders ready for their Constitution program which was going to be just 4 days after the teacher came back! I’m now finished with that long term sub job 🙂
I want to continue with the cards from the Jars of Love class I did.
This card used the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and Beautiful Branches Thinlits. It was done using the Sweet Sugarplum ink, cardstock, and Ruched ribbon. The jar was stamped in Dapper Denim ink and the inside of the jar was stamped using Soft Sky. Old Olive cardstock was used for the leaves which were cut out with the Thinlits. Unfortunately this set was only offered for a short period of time, but by making a card with it I sold quite a few sets!
To make the card I actually stamped the tree once on the Whisper White cardstock and then again and cut it out with the Beautiful Branches Thinlits and added Stampin’ dimensionals to make it have a 3-D effect. The sentiment was stamped using Sweet Sugarplum ink.
Here is a closer look at the card.
