I love mason jars and I also love cold pink lemonade on a hot sunny day! For this challenge I pulled out a die from Frantic Stamper called the Milk Bottle & Mason Jar die. I die cut it with patterned ombre paper that looked like pink lemonade to me.
To create the banner, I used one the Medieval Banner dies and cut them from patterned paper. I first stamped a curved line for them to hang from. I wanted them to have a little dimension also so I used the trick below.
I applied adhesive to the top of the banners and then I put a small piece of dimensional foam at the bottom. This allowed the banners to have a little lift and it won't be flattened when it is put in the envelope like it would if I had just curled them up a little.
After I die cut the jar with the Dipped Dyed Ombre Paper, I attached a lemon that I had stamped with the Summertime Fruits stamp set from Frantic Stamper and then watercolored it with basic watercolors and an aqua pen. I cut a tiny slit in the lemon so it could fit inside of the jar like the lemons in the inspiration photo.
Here's the photo I used for inspiration for my card.
Thank you for stopping by! I think it's time to go grab a refreshing lemonade!
