A Refreshing Jar of Lemonade

Hey everyone!  The Shabby Tea Room has a cute inspiration photo for their challenge this week and I couldn't resist playing along!

Jen Carter Lemonade Love 2

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.

Jen Carter Lemonade Love Banners 2


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!
