Friendship Jar

Have you seen Papertrey Ink's new Friendship Jar and the companion set Friendship Jar Fillers? These two sets are just adorable, and this card just begins to show why!

I started out by die cutting the jar out of Stamper's Select White and Cardstock Vellum. I stamped the candy/marbles image onto the white, then the jar outline onto the vellum. The candy reminded me of the sour balls candy I loved as a kid.(Of course, nearly choking myself to death on a time or two - I do have a very vivid memory of receiving the Heimlich manuever thanks to one, too. Hmm, no wonder you can't find these any more!) ;) I decided to color them with the Melon Berry Copic Trio, then place the vellum jar over the top. To add a little dimension to the jar image, I added a little light blue Copic to the edges (it has a glass-like feel in real life). To further embellish the jar, I added the label die and jar-topper die. So cute!

I thought this striped piece had a candy-like feel, too. The stripe is from Distressed Stripes and it is done with Melon Berry Ink. The sentiment, from Cupcake Collection, was a no-brainer for this card! I finished off the card with a little Nichole-treatment with a fine-tip pen and a ruler. Pretty 'sweet', if I do say so myself! ;)

Have a great day! Be well.
