Growing in Unity: DAY 4

WOW! Day 4 already! Well, I'm happy to tell you all that the hurricane passed on by this area and, aside from some rain, we didn't get anything! YAY! Other parts of Newfoundland had some damage to property because of the VERY strong winds, but there were no deaths so all is good! :0)

On to my project! Today I have a card that I made for my aunt's birthday. Wanna see?


I used a piece of clear plastic for the mason jar, which is from the "December 2011 Kit of the Month" and it looks really nice...although this picture is doing awful things with it! I promise! It looks good in the flesh! I stamped it on the plastic (It was some sort of packaging material for something!) with Stazon and heated it a little with my heat gun...but it started to curl...which is probably what the camera is picking up. Then a drew some stems with my Crayola's, glued some ribbon from my stash around the neck of the mason jar and stuck it on the card. Then I embossed some flowers from the "Eco Chic" set on yellow paper with black embossing powder, cut them out, and added them to the end of the stems. I stamped the happy birthday sentiment from the "How you doin" ippity set on white card stock and matted it with black cardstock. A small piece of the same pink ribbon was folded and stuck to the back of the sentiment. VoilĂ ! An aunt's CAS birthday card! :0) Inspiration for this card came from here

Thank's for stopping by!

Patricia, your card popped up on my Blogger reader this morning and I thought, "Oh how cute, love the jar" but I didn't click on it to go to the blog or see who made it. I was in a hurry. How fun to come over here now and see it is YOUR creation!!! The plastic jar is just too cute and I love the ribbons at the top of the jar and tucked at the side of the sentiment!!!

Love the way this looks with the stamped jar on plastic! What a great idea to tie that ribbon around the top of the jar!
