Card - Sending You Sunshine!

I have been having a lot of  fun playing around with my Silhouette Cameo lately and decided to try making a Jar Shaped Card!  I started with this cute Jar Shape die cut made by Lori Whitlock along with 2 other cuts made by her a Cloud and a Sun.  I also used some of the Paper from the Echo Park Hello Summer 6x6 Paper Pad and ended up with this!  To give it a Glass look I cut a top piece of the jar so that you are looking through a sheet of transparency film.

Sending You Sunshine Details:  Patterned Paper:  Echo Park Hello Summer 6x6 pad, Die Cuts:  Silhouette (Jar, Sun, Clouds) by Lori Whitlock.  Button & Twine are American Crafts, Wood Heart is Studio Calico, Stamps & Ink are PTI.
  1. Cut the Jar Shape from white cardstock for the back of the card.
  2. Cut the same shape from the Cloud patterned paper and again from Transparency Film.
  3. Cut the Jar Top from Grey cardstock.
  4. Cut the Sun from the yellow & white patterned paper.
  5. Cut the Clouds from the Blue patterned paper.
  6. Stamp the sentiment in Black ink on the two clouds
  7. Score the top of the white Jar cut and glue to the top of the Cloud Piece to form the card base
  8. Glue the Grey Jar top to the clear acetate sheet.
  9. Glue the first cloud down and pop dot the second one and the sun onto the cloud paper.
  10. Add the button and twine tied in a bow to the centre of the Sun.
  11. Pop dot the lid and the acetate sheet to the cloud piece
  12. Tie Twine around the lid and add the Wooden Heart.
