Pretty Tulips in a Jar

Hello, friends!

It's Monday, so it's Nancy Nickel here with a new Tutti Designs share!

I'm back with another project using the beautiful "Tulip Bunch" die.
You can find it right HERE.

I got so involved in having fun with my card 
that I completely forgot to take photos as I went along. 
I'll do my best to walk you through it...step by step.

Here's the card I made:

I began by cutting the die out of green cardstock.
Using a red marker, I colored the tulip part of the die.

Using a mason jar stamp that I have, I stamped once on grey cardstock,
and then once again on scrap paper. 
I fussy cut the jar ring.
Laying a piece of acetate over the stamped mason jar,
I traced the outline of the jar using a black marker. 
Once the marker had dried, I cut the acetate out just outside the marker line.
Here's a closer look at my jar:

All that was left was the assembling of all the pieces.
I trimmed a couple of the bottom swirly leaves from the die.
I added glue to the back of the die with a glue pen.
I left the top of the flowers free of glue so they could lift up off the page.
It adds some nice dimension.
The "jar" was adhered with a strip of tape across the top and the bottom.
This is all covered up by the jar ring on the top, 
and the sentiment on the bottom.

Finally, I layered it on some pretty paper and then a cardstock base.
Two red enamel dots in the top corners, and it was all finished!
