I've got to admit: a lot of times when I create a card - it just ends up in a box...piled on top all of the other cards I've made...and it stays there until I have too many and then I give them away to someone who will actually use them.
Sad, but true.
I know I have heard of many other cardmakers who are the same - make a card just to do something creative, but then it just sits there.
Sometimes, though - I will make a card with a specific purpose in mind...and actually give it to the intended recipient(s)!
This was such a card:
And of course I love anything to do with mason jars - I don't know why they are so cute...but they are. I die cut the base of the jar from a vellum that has some sparkles in it, then die cut the lid from a silvery cardstock.
I then finished it off by tying the top of the jar with twine and adhering everything to the card base. It's a card that came together fairly quickly and I am pleased with the result.
