DSCN6066Hi Everyone! Summertime in a card is what this card reminds me of! Growing up on the farm, poking holes on the top of a mason jar and catching lighting bugs was a big deal! And fun to keep in our bedroom that night. AND with any luck, they survived the night to be set free the next day.

DSCN6067The jar is made using 2 layers: Bottom layer is a stamped Window Sheet and the top layer is Vellum. I think it makes it look like a real jar!

Making of the elements:
Jar – with Jet Black StazOn, stamp jar image on Window Sheet and let dry a couple of minutes. Meanwhile, die cut jar out of Vellum and heat emboss lid using VersaMark, Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder and the Heat Tool. Die cut window sheet and jar lid.

Stamp lightening bugs and color. Die cut bugs.

With Glue Dot – add bugs to window sheet jar. With Glue Dots, add Vellum jar over top. With Glue Dots add lid.

General instructions:
With Hardwood stamp, stamp Tip Top Taupe on Pool Party to form fence. Layer on Basic Black Cardstock. Add to So Saffron card base.
With Gold Wink of Stella – fleck gold unto card front. Add jar, more lighting bugs and sentiment punched out with Duet Banner Punch.
