Taylored Expressions August Spotlights: Hey Sweet Tea!

I hope you're enjoying the latest release at Taylored Expressions!  I have a project for you today using the Hey, Sweet Tea set.  Hey, Sweet Tea is a continuation of Jami's jar series with a super cute mason jar glass and fillers.   Hey, Sweet Tea coordinates with the Mason Jar Glass & Lid dies.  It's just perfect for summertime cards.  Lemonade and Sweet Tea sure make ME think of summer!  :)

For my card, I used papers from the For the Record 2 Tailored Collection from Echo Park.   I stamped and die cut the mason jar, then colored it and added some Stardust Stickles to give the ice cubes some sparkle.  :)  I stamped and hand cut the straw and then inserted it into the mason jar by cutting a slit.  The sentiment was stamped in Frost White Ink and embossed in white. 

To finish the card, I added some Washi Tape.  Hey, Sweet Tea is an adorable set!  I hope you've enjoyed today's project.  You can find all of the new products in the TE Store.  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit the rest of the Baker's Dozen for more eye candy!

OK - Charmaine - I'm totally laughing at myself. As soon as I saw your card I gasped and said "OH! That's how the ice cubes should be!" I tried several configurations of them, but your is the best! And I love the idea of stickles on them. I used crackle accents, but I like your sparkle better.
