the yummy inspiration photo at Inspired by All the Little Things, I couldn't resist playing along! I took my inspiration from the photo's color scheme and goodie-filled jar.
Clear and Simple Stamps Well Preserved Jars: Large and Well Preserved Jars: Cocoa stamp sets. With a little masking, it was easy to add the ribbon wrapped top to the large jar and fill it with the cocoa packets and chocolate spoon image. I colored the image with Copic markers, then carefully cut it out. After placing a rich red snowflake patterned paper panel on a piece of kraft cardstock, I added the jar on top, using foam tape for dimension. I stamped the "warmest wishes" sentiment in white pigment ink on a brown cardstock strip, then heat embossed the text for a bold pop against the dark background. After edging the strip with some cream trim, I added it to the bottom of the patterned panel, tucking one end underneath the raised jar. The finished panel was adhered to a red card base.
