Preserved Love

So I'm finally organized enough get some stamping and cards done!  I recently purchased this adorable jar stamp and die set from Taylored Expressions and have been dying to use it.  Isn't it just so cute? The stamp set also came with a heart stamp for hearts in the jar, but I decided to use some shiny heart stickers instead.  So, I first stamped the jar on vellum with black archival ink.  Then, I used the jar die cut and cut it out, then cut out another jar with the die out of craft plastic.  I stuck the hearts on top of the vellum jar, added one large glitter heart and then glued the plastic jar on top.  The ribbon I thought gave the card more of a country feel to it.  It has to be one of the oldest ribbons in my stash that I maybe have used one other time.  So thanks to the SOS challenge, I pulled it out, dusted it off and used it!

This card is for the following challenges:

Stamps:  Jar, sentiment (Taylored Expressions).
Paper:  Kraft; DP - Love (Recollections)
Ink:  Jet Black (Staz On); Chianti (Colorbox)
Extras:  Heart stickers; red paisley ribbon; red gems; jar die; embossed folder (Sizzix).
