One Layer Jar of Love Note Cards

Isn't Jar of Love a wonderful stamp set?  There are so many options with this set. Today I have a note card that is one layer.  How simple can it be!  There is a lot of stamping I will admit.  OK, at the end I did decide that the jar needed to be grounded. We can't let that jar just float in space!  I did add an inch of patterned paper at the bottom.  We'll get to that.

I've mentioned before how fabulous the Stampin' Up! Note Cards & Envelopes are. Twenty cards of thick white card stock with the envelopes.  They measure 3 1/2 x 5 and cost only $6.  I often use the note cards when I am making multiples of a card. These will be used for shut ins at church and for some customers, too.

  • Stamp the jar in Basic Black Archival ink.
  • The Rich Razzleberry flowers are from the Wild About Flowers stamp set.  The leaves are stamped in Old Olive first and then the razzleberry flowers.  The photopolymer stamp set makes it so easy to put the flowers just where you want them.
  • The leaf stems on each side of the flowers are from Jar of Love and are stamped in Always Artichoke.  Because they are photopolymer, I was able to curve the stem on the block so they fit perfectly in the jar.
  • The bow and string around the jar are from Jar of Love and are stamped in Rich Razzleberry.
  • The water is stamped in Pool Party.
  • The Hello was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink.
  • I used the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper stack to ground the jar.  The paper measures 1 inch wide.  I stamped the bottom of the jar on the paper and snipped it out, glued it to the project, and then trimmed the ends to fit the card.
