Hello! Today, I’m sharing a summer-themed, die-cut card created with Penny Black stamps and dies.
I cut the flowers using the 51-244 Gaiety and 51-242 Shall We Dance die sets, placing the flowers in a vase cut with the 51-142 Mason Jar set. I cut the blooms from green cardstock for the stems and various colors for the blooms. (All cardstock is from Stampin’ Up.) On the colored cardstock die-cuts, I trimmed the blooms from the stems and adhered them to the green die-cuts. I cut the jar from vellum, to which I had added double-sided adhesive. After cutting, but before adhering to the flowers, I added Distress Ink to the vellum to simulate water. I then removed the backing and adhered the jar to the top of the blooms placed on the dry-embossed background.
I stamped the sentiment from the 30-228 Blooming Tags stamp set and cut it with a small tag die. I put the burlap string around the top of the Mason Jar to add a natural element. The Mason Jar shadow was created with an oval die.
