When I am stamping, I always picture how the card is going to look before I gather my supplies. And some cards transfer exactly from my mind to my paper. This was not one of those cards.
I found myself adding layers and taking away layers, adding ribbons and taking away ribbons, moving the greeting, changing the accessories, etc. You get it, right? The good news is that despite the many efforts, when all is said and done, I like this card. I think the Cotton Ribbon saved it.Did you know that you can stamp directly onto the Cotton Ribbon as well?
I wanted to use a 3" by 4" piece of the Orchard Harvest designer series paper because this size gives me the most bang for the buck. I always try to cut my designer series papers to a size that allows for the most use of the paper. But the jar just looked lost on the paper. By moving the paper up just a bit and leaving some Crumb Cake showing at the bottom and adding a small piece of Lucky Limeade at the top of the paper I achieved the balanced look I wanted.
After cutting out the Perfectly Preserved stamped jar, lid, pear, stem and greeting with the Cannery Set Framelits, finishing the card was easy. A Naturals Designer Button in the darker colour to match the Early Espresso and I was done.

I notched the Cotton Ribbon to match the notch created on the greeting with the Bitty Banners Framelit.
