Crafty Pad Designs Challenge

I am in a challenge mood today and  am cranking out the cards with some challenges in mind!  This card is for a challenge at Crafty Pad Designs.  The idea is to use something that is CLEAR.  Great chance to use my new Papertrey friendship jar stamp set and matching jar die.
I die cut a jar shape from one of the Papertrey coasters, and then a second from a piece of acetate. (HINT:  I save the pieces of acetate that come with the stamps sets and use them for my jars).  I stamp the jar image on both, using Staz On Black ink, being extra careful not to smear the one stamped on the acetate.  Then I stamp the berries on white card stock, color and cut out.  I adhere them to the first jar and then put the acetate jar on top, adhering it with a small line of Ranger Glossy Accents around the edge of the image. I use a dimensional adhesive to attach it to the card, adding the single berries at the bottom.
