(Note: Unless otherwise indicated, SNAIL Adhesive was used to assemble card.)

1. Score Sahara Sand card stock at 4-1/4"; fold away from the scoreline to create card.

2. Adhere 5" x 3-3/4" Blushing Bride card stock to front of card; adhere Early Espresso card stock over Blushing Bride; adhere Designer Series Paper across bottom of Early Espresso. Set aside.

3. Stamp flowers in jar image on Whisper White card stock; punch 1-1/4" circle from portion of image, being sure to include some flowers and part of the jar. Adhere remaining Whisper White card stock to smaller piece of Blushing Bride card stock. Adhere this piece to front of card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

4. Use Stampin' Write Markers to color flowers and leaves on the circle cut from the image. Use Smooch Ink to paint the jar. Allow to dry, then adhere to 1-3/8" Early Espresso circle. Line up with image on front of card, and adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals.

5. Punch Modern Label from Blushing Bride card stock. Stamp "thinking of you" on scrap of Whisper White card stock and punch out with Word Window punch; adhere to Modern Label; adhere Modern Label to front of card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

6. Make bow with Lace Ribbon and adhere to card with Mini Glue Dot.

Some of the people in my workshops thought this looked like a wedding card, so instead of using the "thinking of you" sentiment, they substituted "For the Newlyweds" from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

Hope you enjoy this card.
