You Fill Me With Happiness

Hi Everyone!
Today's card features
Jar of Love 
and the coordinating dies
Everyday Jar Framelits
Together these two products pack a lot of 
potential creativity!
It has everything from Birthday to Valentine's Day
not to mention all the possibilities for
All Occasion cards!
I had fun using this color combination of
Calypso Coral, Petal Pink, Highland Heather, Balmy Blue & Pear Pizazz.
Even though the 1/4" Mini Stripped Ribbon is Gorgeous Grape,
 it looks amazing with Highland Heather too!
To Create the Banner, I cut the stamp in half (*gasp*) No really, I do that often,
Especially if I know that I will probably always use it as one line as 
opposed to two.
They fit back together anyway...Photo-polymer!
I also did some partial die-cutting to shorten the banner from
the die set
Bunch of Banners.
For the Splattered-looking background I used the sand stamp from
Magical Mermaid
MEASUREMENTS:
  • CALYPSO CORAL CARD BASE 4 1/4" X 11", SCORED & FOLDED AT 5 1/2".
  • PETAL PINK LAYER 4" X 5 1/4".
  • WHISPER WHITE LAYER 3 3/4" X 5"
