I totally dig incorporating paper crafting trends into my cards. Mason jars have been trending for a while and I think they'll be sticking around for a while longer. I made this card for the Jars of Joy Challenge over at Moxie Fab World. The deadline is Oct. 8 so there is still plenty of time for you to play along!
I went with a CAS approach to this card. I stamped a little jar (Dear Lizzy) and paper pieced the lid. I made the tiny lady bug using Epiphany Crafts Round 14 custom embellishment tool and a regular ol' paper punch. A little white ink for the eyes and the ladybug was done! My sentiment stamp collection is a bit meager, so I printed the sentiment using my printer.
This card measures 3.5"x3" and would be perfect for a valentine. Plus, it would be super easy for your kids to make!
