I started with Pool Party cardstock for the cardbase and then added a layer of Whisper White cardstock for the cardfront. On this layer I used some Pool Party ink and the Playful Backgrounds stamp set to stamp the circle images which remind me of bubbles. I also stamped the greeting from the Jar of Love stamp set using Dapper Denim. I also added a strip of Peekaboo Peach striped paper from the 2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack and matted it with Dapper Denim cardstock.
For the stamped image I started by stamping the medium jar image using Basic Black ink and cut it out with the coordinating framelits (this stamp set and framelits are available as a bundle for a discount). Next I used a sponge and some Pool Party ink to lightly colorwash the background and then stamped the sample "bubble image" using Dapper Denim ink which was stamped off once to slightly lighten the color. To make the lid for the jar I stamped it with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Silver Embossing Powder and the Heat Tool. For the fish, I used Stampin' Write Markers to color directly on the stamp and tried to blend the color a little to mimic the look of the fish. I used a framelit to cut out the fish and then attached the fish and jar lid to the jar using dimensionals. Before attaching the jar to the cardfront I took some silver thread and looped it behind the jar so it just peaks out for a little texture.
This card is so cute and I think is perfect for this occasion and to be given by Aidan, it's fun. I love all the different options with the Jar of Love bundle, so many uses!
