Mason Jar With Roses

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the theme “Mason Jars” – DD_MasonJars_Aug4use a mason jar and/or anything you see in the jar on the mood board. The team have created a bunch of beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile. We have also a fun prize to give away to one lucky player which will be chosen by Random.org.

Now onto the details of my card for the new challenge. I used my colorize bloom dies to create my roses, rose buds and leaves for my floral arrangement . I die cut the flowers and buds from different shades of pink and pale yellow cardstock, colour them with distress inks and then assemble all the small pieces to create depth. The leaves were die cut from two shades of green card-stock, glued together and then distress with ink. The mason jar was stamped on white vellum, cut out, lightly sponged with blue distress ink and then layered on script designer paper. The roses, buds and leaves were layered with mirror tape to add more dimension to the card. For added interest I added a lace strip at the bottom of the card. I finished off with a die cut sentiment from black glitter cardstock and a pink wax cord bow.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

  • Dies R Us Challenge #174 (ends 08/13) – Always Anything Goes with a brand they sell (Dies: Sizzix Thinlits Colorize die “Bloom- Colorize” (665208) — Sizzix Thinlets die “Crochet” (664178) — Sizzix Thinlits die “Script Sentiments” (665089))
