To start I sized the candy jar image to
2-1/2"x5" and placed on one half the page.
Copy and paste to other side of page.
I sized the individual candies to 1/2" and
placed randomly around the jar base. I placed a second set of 1/2" candies on the
other side of the page. I sized a third set of candies to 7/8" on the other side of the page.
I cut the page in half to color. Color as desired, I used Copic® Markers. The Colors are listed above.
I stayed with pastel colors. I used some blues and grays to add highlights to the jar.
I cut out the bottom portion of the image
with an X-acto® knife to enable placing the
Lace Stitched Oval® Die under the image
as shown. I secured the die with washi-tape to allow to color within the oval as shown.
Once the coloring is complete, run the image and die through the Big Shot® to cut out the main image.
Fussy cut the candies from the second half
of page and the bow from the second candy jar.
Cut the Ballerina Pink card stock to 5"x12".
Score and fold at 7" and at 10" to form an
easel card base.
Cut the Candy paper to 5"x2", and 5"x5".
Score and fold the 5"x5" in the middle.
Smudge the edges of the Ballerina Pink card base and the candied paper edges.
Using Tear-ific® Tape, adhere the folded candy paper to the top Ballerina Pink flap with 1-1/2" of the flap sandwiched between the candy flaps as shown.
Using Tear-ific® Tape adhere the 5"x2" rectangle to the bottom of the interior of the bottom as shown.
Using Tear-ific® Tape apply to the backside of the
Heart Lace® Stitched Oval image on the bottom
half. Adhere to the front lower portion of the
Using Foam Tape adhere the small fussy cut candies over the candies around the jar base.
(I used small candies on the base and decided they were too small, so I removed them.)
Using Foam Tape adhere the 7/8"-1" fussy cut in a row and one on the lower left edge as shown.
Using Dimensional® Glue adhere the "Be Mine"
sentiment on the oval main image. A sweet
confection card for your sweetie!
