For Someone Sweet
I used MTME's digi images Well Preserved. I did some digi magic to colorize the topper from black to red... same with the strawberry on the jar... resized the saying and the strawberry to fit into the label and then printed it all up. (It really isn't hard at all! Lauren has some great video tutorials on how to do it!) I then used my copics to color the red jam and shade the label. Had I been thinking right I wouldn't have used a grey (N0 & N1) and I would have gone with a warm color due to the fact that I wanted to achieve a vintage look. I used the distressed ink to warm it up a bit and to also distress the paper on the card.
I cut a strip of shiny red fabric and tied it around the jam jar before adhering it to the card with pop-up dots. I printed up some of the great papers from Preserve it Oranges and Strawberries. There are other "Preserve it" paper packages that are so fun! You can also see the buttons I used below.
And here's my bow...
I'm quite happy with the way this one turned out. I have my own unique way of tying them and maybe... just maybe I'll share that secret on here another time. Not this morning though... I still have another blog post to do before I even go to bed. No rest for the weary!
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you will play along with us and be sure and check out the other design team member's cards.
