You're Sweet!

You're Sweet!
Finally got my chance to make the card for my partner for the Malaysia Cardmakers Card Swap which is ending on 30 April 2013. Actually I am not very inspired by the themes which delayed my card making.

Sketch Saturday Week #255
But, when I saw the sketch at Sketch Saturday Week #255 (as shown above), it just struck to me that this sketch made a nice shaker card using Fresh Squeezed Stamps Christmas Treats' apothecary jar which I had the idea earlier

Another reason I want to use the apothecary jar is that my partner is a sweet person (judging from her profile photo in Facebook). The card swap themes are Mother's Day, green and stamping and we are required to use only any two (2) themes. I decided to abandon Mother's Day theme as I believe my partner is not yet a mother and decided to go with my own sweet theme instead.

Close-up : Own made 'pinwheel' sweet pattern paper
I kind of made my own pattern paper as I do not have any pattern paper related to sweet. I randomly stamp the 'pinwheel' sweet in green and orange color onto a yellow card stock. It is not perfect as some of the 'pinwheel' sweet ink smudged but I like how it look.

Close-up : Custom sentiment
Well, I do not own Lawn Fawn Here's the Scoop yet. Thus, I need to custom my own sentiment. Once everything is in place, the yellow card stock is attached onto a green card stock after the corners has been rounded.

Close-up : Fish tail ribbon
A fish tailed multicolored grosgrain ribbon is attached on to the yellow card stock as shown in the sketch.

Close-up : Shaker apothecary jar in standing position
The shaker apothecary jar is the hardest part. At first I thought it is quite easy to do but theory and imagination is sometimes very different from making it real! I have to practice on a number of card stock which gone wasted but it all worth it when I finally got it right and know how to do it!

The shaker apothecary jar is attached onto the card as shown in the sketch. I wish I put more the beads into the shaker as some of the beads been sticking to the side like permanently! Anyhow, it did turned out to be just like I wanted it to be!
