Jar Filled With Love

Happy Wednesday! Today I have a fun little card I made using Kate's ABCs. I have had an idea to make a card in the shape of a jar for sometime now and while looking through my cartridges I found the perfect one on Kate's ABC's. The original one has grass along with butterflies and while I love how it looks it wasn't what I was going for. So off I went to CCR to do some adjust and editing. I deleted off the grass and butterflies and then added the heart from CCR Basics. After I got the jar the way I wanted, I cut everything out on my Cricut. I used plain card stock for my jar, black for my outline, a various patterned papers for my hearts. I made the card jar shaped by simply cutting out the base twice. I then took the back of the card and scored the "lid" part of the jar. This made a little hinge for me to stick the front of the card on.

The hearts were cut out of scraps I had lying in my scrap bin. I have a ridiculous amount of bits and pieces of paper that I just don't want to part with. Thankfully after digging through I found some pieces that were apart of the same color families and probably the same paper pack. I don't normally mix patterns but I think it worked out on this one! The hearts were inked along the edges and then stuck on using pop dots. I finished it off with some twine!

I really enjoy making cards that are in the shape of something and I love the jar idea. I think I am going to play with this idea some more using markers and vellum so stay tuned!
