Fireflies light up the night!

By | July 10, 2016

When I see the fireflies out at night I remember back to when I was a child and would catch them and put them in a jar with holes in the lid to watch them glow. On Facebook I saw that a local orchard was having a Firefly Festival last night for kids, both of these items inspired today’s card. Plus, who doesn’t like a shaker card!

My card features the Jar of Love Photopolymer bundle, 37 stamps and 17 matching dies! The stamp set is called Jar of Love and the matching die set is Everyday Jars Framelits.

To make my card I started with the card base and layering mat. Both are using Early Espresso card stock and the mat has been run through the Big Shot with the Softly Falling Textured Embossing folder. Before adhering to the base I lightly ran the Whisper White Craft Ink stamp pad over it to make it look like stars in the night sky.  Next are the fireflies, stamped with Memento Black Ink, colored in with a Delightful Dijon marker and die cut with their matching die. The jar was stamped on Whisper White and die cut with the matching die, also using a piece of Window Sheet and Whisper White die cut matching jars, just not with the open die cut. The window sheet was adhered to the stamped image, I turned it over, added a foam adhesive strip to create the well to fill with fireflies and some Dazzling Diamond Glitter, next I attached the extra jar to seal everything in. On the front of the jar I adhered a handle and lid and adhered to the card. A few extra fireflies added, with dimensionals, as they are flying around the night air.  Sentiment is from the stamp set, stamped in Delightful Dijon and adhered with liquid glue.
