Products Used: Classic Summer Bash Stamp Set (May 2018 SOTM), Memento Ink, Adventure Fundamentals Paper Packet, Vellum Paper, Raspberry Ink, Black Ink, Adventure Ribbon PackWhite Daisy Cards and Envelopes, and Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.

I really wanted to do something a little bit different with this one. By stamping the jar image onto vellum, I added the butterflies inside (underneath). I also used the “&” sign to create the border along the bottom of the card.
