Frosted Jar Candle Card
I just love the “Jar” sets and the Framelits™ Dies that go with them! For my Frosted Jar Candle Card, I used the candle image and the Diamond Dust Technique to create a Faux Snow Globe effect. The advantage to this technique is that you don’t have to fuss with Window Sheets.
First, stamp the jar outline and the candle images from the Jar of Cheer Stamp Set on a piece of Watercolor Paper. Use the Jet Black StazOn Ink Pad so you’ll have plenty of waterproofing and the images will show up. Place the candle image near the bottom of the jar, so you’ll have room to stamp the greeting from the Merriest Wishes Stamp Set at the top. I used the Cherry Cobbler Classic Stampin’ Pad for this.
Next, color the candle image with Stampin’ Write Markers. I used Garden Green and Wild Wasabi for the leaves, Sweet Sugarplum for the candle, Cherry Cobbler for the berries, and Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango for the flame. I also coated the flame with the Gold Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, but it doesn’t show once you frost the image with Diamond Dust. Use the Wink of Stella when you’re not frosting the image.
Now for the Diamond Dust Technique. Coat the whole jar with SNAIL, making sure it’s all covered. You’ll be hiding this under a framed layer with only the frosty image visible. Sprinkle Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter all over the layer. Tap off the excess and return it to the jar.
I told you how to make a layered jar frame in my article, “The Eyes Have It Card.” You’ll use the same technique with the This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper and Silver Foil Sheets. The DSP is great for envelopes, too – it’s thinner than the regular DSP.
Adhere the Diamond Dust layer so it matches the opening in the frame layer. You could create the layered jar frame first and use it as a guide to place the greeting as well. Trim the frosted image layer so it fits well within the frame. You may need to use Fast Fuse to make it secure.
Wrap the ribbon around the bottom of the layer and tie in a knot. I used a Glue Dot to secure the knot in place. Then attach the completed layer to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
