Typically I try to stay with one or two stamping techniques on a card, but oddly enough, this one has solid line, no-line, solid image, and emboss resist all in one. The card frame itself is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on three jar die cuts partially cut to form one vertical z-fold mini card. I hope that will make sense with the following photos:
The first flap also has the lid attached, stamped in Archival Black and clear heat embossed on silver mirror cardstock. The flap is backed with acetate and embellished with seaweed, coral, and a shell. The seaweed and coral were solid images each stamped in two colors. The shell was colored with Copics. The second flap is open on the inside and the seaweed swing is sandwiched between two swing seats and tied at the top. The trick to getting the string not to show on the front of the flap was to tie it to an additional die cut jar and glue that onto the back of the middle flap so she can freely swing back and forth. Clear as mud, right?
Looking at the next photo, I think I'll go back and also put an extra jar die cut on the front flap to finish it off better.
The back flap image was masked, stamped, heat embossed, and ink blended:

This whole idea came about from the latest Lawnfawnatics Challenge: Emboss Resist. It started with the jar background.
