I just love how this turned out. I was so giddy when things started falling together (after a sleepless night when my mind started whirring with ideas).
A few tips for how I made the card.
The cotton ball stems were made using the whisper white mini pom-pom trim (recently retired from Stampin' Up!) and the stems and the 5-petal flower bunch die from the Bouquet Bunch framelit dies. I die cut both the stems and the flowers using Early Espresso cardstock. I cut the flowers out individually and trimmed them a little so the petals were thinner. I curled the petals using my fingers and so they cupped a pom-pom, then I glued the cupped flower to the white pom-pom using Tombow glue. You can kind of tell in the pic below that I used various widths of the flower petals, I didn't need to cut them uniformly.
The leaves were also die cut from the same Bouquet Bunch framelit dies. For the long leaves I die cut them using Pear Pizzazz cardstock and then I sponged some Emerald Envy ink on all but the top part of the leaf to give it a dual color effect. The other leaves were die cut using Wild Wasabi and Garden Green.
The mason jar was die cut from vellum cardstock and I tinted it by sponging it with Soft Sky ink.
The background was made using the new Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I used this folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Then I used an aquapainter to add some Sahara Sand ink to the pine to give the wood the darker white-washed color.
The rooster is from the Wood Words clear-mount bundle (Stamp and coordinating die) and the sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous photopolymer stamp set.
Everything except the whisper white pom-pom trim is from the Stampin' Up! 2018-2018 Annual Catalog. I am glad I was able to use so many different products to make this card. It's nice when I can tell my husband that I am using the things I buy ;0).
Since the card met a few sketch challenges I added my card to the following challenges:
