Asters in Canning Jar

 I am excited to announce there are a lot of new products that will be available this month at Elizabeth Craft Designs.  In the Susan's Garden Collection, there are seven CountryScapes die sets, ten Garden Notes dies sets, and five stencils that will be available very soon. 

Garden Notes - Aster

Garden Notes - Canning Jar & Lid

Today I am giving you a preview of the new Garden Notes Aster die set and the Garden Notes Canning Jar and Lid die set.

To die cut the Canning Jar, I used a piece of clear acetate and a piece of vellum to represent the water in the jar.  The acetate and vellum were die cut at the same time.  To help show the outline of the jar, I used a fine line black marker to go around the edge of the jar and over the scored lines.  The piece of vellum was cut off to create the water line, which is about 2/3 up from the bottom of the jar.  The vellum was lightly sponged with blue ink.  To attach the vellum to the acetate jar, I use small strips of the Elizabeth Craft Design Clear  Double Sided Adhesive. Since it is clear, it does not show.  

Seven Asters were die cut and assembled.  In order to have long stems, as well as the stems that come with the die set, I cut small strips of green card stock that were long enough to reach down in the jar.  There is an opening in the top of the jar so that the stems will fit down inside the jar.  

A yellow Dotted Scallop Oval was die cut for the background.  The jar was attached with Clear Double Sided Adhesive along the sides and bottom.  The flower stems were tucked down through the opening in the top of the jar and glued in place.  Some of the leaves were attached to the long stems and additional leaves attached at the base of the flowers. The flowers were attached with glue dots.  

Four Els van de Burgt Studio Corners 1 corners were die cut and attached to each corner of the card.  This is an 8 1/2" by 5" card.  

The sentiment was die cut using the A Way With Words Get Well Soon die set.

Your card is beautiful!
Thank you so much for sharing your tips on adding "water" to the jar - such a marvelous technique.
