Chalk Painted Jar of Flowers Card

I was trying to create the look of a chalk painted
mason jar "flower vase" for this special card
for a very special someone.

It was an experiment that didn't turn out half bad!

I heat embossed a jar image onto chipboard.
I chose to use chipboard since I was going to 
be painting it. It was tricky to cut out with scissors!

I heat embossed "happy birthday" in two
portions to stack the words on top of each other.
I wanted it to resemble to logos on masons.

I brushed on chalk paint, lightly rubbing
it from the embossing. I was trying to make it
look like the chalk painted mason jars that were so popular.

Numerous flowers were stamped, water colored and hand cut 
with scissors. They all have dimensionals behind them.
I tucked in some small die cut greenery and leaves. 

Twine is wrapped around the mouth of the jar.
It is held in place on back with tape and 
a bit of clear drying glue around the knot.

It's all mounted over a background that has had
Distress Oxide ink sponged onto it. 
Brighter than I intended, but it was the only 
blue I have in that type of ink. 


There is a lot of dimension on this card!
It will be hand delivered,
but would require extra postage if it was mailed.
