Jar of Love

Hi everyone!  SURPRISE…it’s a Sunday post!  I had some extra time today and say the CASology Challenge 292 for Foil…oh my word…I HAD to join the fun!  The SAB Springtime Foil papers couldn’t be more perfect for this!

Isn’t this just GORGEOUS?  It’s hard to see the shiny foil in this so here is a close-up one…

 

The outline for the flower and leaves are a rosy foil so I used the Champagne foil for my strip since it also has  pink undertone in there.

Here’s the details…

  • Pink Pirouette – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Pink Pirouette – 4 3/4 x 3 1/2
  • Springtime Foil dsp (SAB) – color the flower with the Pink Pirouette Blends and the leaves with Old Olive Blends, cut everything out and layer leaves behind flower (NOTE:  because of the paper you can’t make a lot with the exact same flower/leave combination but you can easily substitute the different ones)
  • Champagne Foil – 1/2 x 3 3/4, add to panel, add flower/leaves then stamp greeting using Old Olive, add panel to card front using dimensionals

Yep it really is super easy AND oh so elegant!
