Jar of Love

I've always enjoyed canning jars.  We used to have huge gardens and I loved to can so many delicious garden vegetables.  I felt like a prisoner in a canning factory many summers.  My days of canning are over, but I've collected a lot of antique jars throughout my lifetime, and I like to decorate with them now.   So I couldn't wait to order the set Jar of Love in the new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog.  The base of my card is Pool Party that is 4-1/4" x 11" and scored at 5-1/2" in the middle.  I've attached a Serene Scenery DSP cut at 4" x 5-1/4" to the front of my card.  The doily is sponged with Crumb cake to give an antique or tea-stain look.  I stamped the jar on vellum with Stazon Black and let it dry completely before using a Pool Party marker on the back for the water inside my jar.  I stamped the stems and leaves with Pear Pizzazz, the flowers are Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Black Stazon for the centers.  I cut them all out with the Everyday Jar Framelits in the Big Shot.  I attached the flowers with Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  The bow is Bermuda Bay.
