The new Holiday Mini Catalog is so full of great new products it's hard to know where to start. I started with fall, my favorite time of year. Yesterday I did a Halloween, today I am using products from the Orchard Harvest Suite. The papers in this line are really cute for fall, the colors are great: Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Island Indigo, More Mustard, Lucky Limeade, and Raspberry Ripple. For this card I focused on Raspberry Ripple and Lucky Limeade. The stamp set is called Perfectly Preserved and has a lot of co-ordinating elements. There is a caning jar, apples, a pear, flowers, stems and leaves, and even an ear of corn. There is a matching Framelit Die so you don't have to cut out the elements with scissors if you are looking for cut out shapes. The stamp set is $20.95 clear mount, the framelit dies are $24.95, but if you buy them together the cost is $38.95! That's a savings of 15%. I used the dies to cut out my jar. The jar is stamped on a window sheet, that's a clear acetate. I wanted to hide the adhesive so I put it behind the "just for you" banner. The jar is also held on by the linen thread. I used my Paper Piercing tool and mat to make holes for the thread. I also added some Dazzling Details glitter on the flower centers. Its hard
to see that detail in the photos, but it really makes a sparkly and finished looking card in real life.
Thanks for stopping by!
