Thinking of You Jam & Card - MKC DT Day

Hi, Crafters! Janis here from Pause Dream Enjoy.
Today is my Design Team posting day for
But first, did you see today's FREEBIE?

It's only free for today, so make sure you go grab it!

For today's project I decided to use:

Fall Set

Here's my project:

Pattern papers from Doodlebug Design Inc - Happy Harvest
Timeless Twine - Autumn Splendor
The top of the jar has 3 layers: 
solid cardstock circle, pattern paper scallop circle, and pattern paper circle.

This is some homemade Strawberry Jam my husband and I made earlier this year. It's yummy. :)

I used Craftin Desert Divas - Say It Big

You can buy this stamp set HERE.

Everything inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain

I simplified the cuts reducing layers and did not use the leaf stems.
For a little 3x3 card and small canning jar like this, I thought it looked better without all the details on the cuts. That's a great thing about Miss Kate Cuttables files - you can use all the layers and details, or simplify them and they still have a wonderful affect for your projects.

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I'm up to.
Go grab today's FREEBIE!
