Friendship Jar

I have seen several bloggers make the stamped jar cards and thought the idea was cute.  The Less is More challenge is to make a shaped card and since there is a jar cut on the Doodlecharms cartridge, I made my card using that. 

I welded the image together and cut it out of light blue paper.  I cut the top layer from a sandable core-dinations paper in a light teal.  I inked the edges and cuts of the jar portion in Broken China Distress Ink and the lid in Black Soot.  I sanded the lid to lighten it up and added some Glossy Accents in the cut out portion.  Before attaching the top layer, I tied some black and white twine around it to attach the sentiment punched with an EK Success tag punch.  I love the way it turned out.

Since this is not really a friendship sentiment, and I wanted to enter a jar in the Paper Playtime challenge, I made a second card.

This one is cut from gray paper for the card and white top layer.  I inked the edge with Weathered Wood Distress Ink, then embossed a little silver on the lid.  The twine is light blue and white.  I don't like this one quite as well as the other but thought it followed the theme better.   Now I want to try another one, leaving off the cut out and making a label. 


  1. Nice jar cards - fun shape! The twine is a nice detail...

  2. Awesome! what a great card and the detail of the inking is superb:)

  4. Both your jars are lovely. You did a great job with the inking. That`s something I need to work on... Thanks for playing with us at Paper Playtime this week. Hope to see you back again soon :)
