3-way Inspiration Card

As you can see, I am still fooling around with the (Hero Arts) mason jar stamped on acetate.  There were three things that led to the creation of this card: 1) I wanted to use up the strips of printed cardstock in my scrap pile that were trimmed off other projects. 2) A set of Hero Arts clear word stamps (red tagged at Ben Franklin Crafts) were begging to be inked up. 3) The fun that I always have playing with and smelling card strips at perfume counters.  The 6x6 card started on a base of embossed cardstock from the 12x12  Basic Gray pack (available at BFC). Words were stamped on scrap strips and sized to fit the jar. Rectangles of printed aqua cardstock from a 6x6 printed paper pack were adhered with Merikan double stick tape.  Then the cut out acetate jar was glued down with 3 in 1 Beacon glue, leaving the top open.  One of the sayings was stamped on a rectangle of printed floral paper and it was taped in place.  Punched out paper buttons (Martha Stewart punch) were inserted into the jar as well as the paper word strips.  Finally, a rose trimmed ribbon was attached as a finishing touch.  I also sprayed some floral perfume on the strips and the paper rose.  This card is great to send to a crafter because she can remove the word strips and paper buttons to use on her own cards or crafts......a little hidden bonus.  I hope your stop at this blog was enjoyable and the post provided you with some new ideas. Please return again and leave a comment if you have the time. I love hearing from you; your sweet comments make me giddy.
