INSTRUCTIONS FOR ASSEMBLY

Prepare Your Cardstock

Cut/trim/score all cardstock and DSP as described above

Stamping

  • Stamp the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set on the 4-5/8” x 3-3/8” piece of Whisper White Cardstock near the top of the cardstock

  • Stamp the jug from the Country Home stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink

  • Carefully stamp the floral bouquet featuring the cotton stems in Memento Tuxedo Black ink at the top of the jug stamp so the flowers appear to be coming out of the jug

Coloring

Color your stamped image to your taste. Here is how I colored the jug and flowers:


  • Color the jug with both the light and dark crumb cake Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers, adding shadows with the darker marker on the left and right edges of the jug

  • Color the rest of the jug using the light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends alcohol marker

  • Use the Color Lifter marker in the center of the jug to blend the colors together and reduce the intensity of the color, making the shading on the left and right more prominent

  • Color the greenery/leaves using the Just Jade Stampin’ Blends marker

  • Color the berries with the dark Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends marker

  • Color the small flower with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends marker

  • Color the round florals with the Bronze Stampin’ Blends marker (if the color is too dark, use the Color Lifter marker to lighten it up)


Putting it All Together

  • Adhere the first layer panel (the DSP) to the card base using the adhesive of your choice

  • Adhere the second layer panel (Cajun Craze) to the first layer panel

  • Adhere the third (top) layer panel (the stamped & colored Whisper White cardstock) to the top of the second layer panel

  • Optional: adhere the final piece of Whisper White (5 ¼” x 4”) to the inside of the card

  • Optional: decorate an envelope for that extra special touch
