Perfectly Preserved!

Good morning! I am so glad to have you stop by my first post. Many more to come....

Today's card features the fabulous and fun set, Perfectly Preserved using Cannery Framelits for the Big Shot. So many possibilities for this set.  This is a Sneak Peek of what is coming your way in the Holiday Mini Catalog, available August 1st.

Helpful Hints:
  • Stamp the jar on the vanilla layer; place the jar framelit on the image & run it through the Big Shot.
  • Wrap a little linen thread around the lid of the cutout jar ~ tie in a bow. Set aside.
  • Adhere the vanilla layer with the cutout to the Gumball Green base.
  • Place the jar framelit into the vanilla cutout. You will know when it's properly placed - the framelit will feel snug. Run the open card through the Big Shot again to make the jar "window."
  • Tie a little ribbon on the card front, complete the inside with designer paper, adhere the jar through the "window", produce pears with the accompanying framelit, adhere; and voila! you're done!
