ODBDSLC268 Card Challenge "Peaches"

Hello everyone!
I made this card as part of the Our Daily Bread designs Shining the Light Challenge for this week. Here is a link to the challenge post:

The challenge was "anything goes" but you must use a ODBD stamp. This was the perfect reason to pull out one of my favorite stamps, the "Peaches" stamp set. You can find it here:

I chose to make my jar full of strawberry jam because I wanted to use red card stock with it. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir and stamped it three times.  I wanted to have extra images so I could layer up the jar topper. First I hand cut the "fabric" blue gingham jar topper and then from another image cut out just the red ribbon. I used dimensional adhesive under the jar topper to make it pop.

I used Cricut's Elegant Edges cartridge to make the scalloped circles and a "Swiss Dots" embossing folder to make the background piece. 

The top and bottom border stamp is from the "Front Porch" ODBD stamp set and can be found here:

I also used Tim Holtz Fired Brick ink for this border piece and heat embossed it with Recollections Clear Embossing powder. 

Thank you for stoping by!
