Awesome Bestie Card

I'm so excited!!!  This is my first attempt at using an SVG image and I LOVE IT!!!  I used Sherri Baldy's "Mason Jar" (SVG image) and an adorable fairy from the "My Besties Wee Winged One's Vol. #2" crafting CD-ROM


I used my Cricut Explore to cut out the images.  I used acetate for the mason jar.  To give it dimension so it would look like a real jar, I cut the jar part of the image twice then attached the top one to the bottom one with very thin double sided tape BUT bringing the edges of the top layer in a little creating an outward curve.  Then I trimmed the excess from the bottom layer.  For the fireflies I attached sequins to the skinny strips of acetate and attached them to the top of the jar so the "fireflies" hang down in the jar like they are flying.  I added sparkle to the fairy by using a Stardust Gelly Roll Pen on her wings and headband, and added some gems to her headband as well.  I also made an extra set of wings with acetate and sprayed them with silver Spray & Sparkle.  I got lucky with the paper....it was from old stack I've had for years.  And the flowers just happened to match....I think I must have picked them up at Michael's.  It's nice how things we have had around for years just come together one day to create something beautiful :)

You can find these images at the following stores....

Sherri Baldy's Etsy Store
