My second project is a simple Christmas notecard that could be either a Christmas card or maybe a Christmas "thank you."
I've had this card base with the embossed rectangle in my stash forever and finally found the perfect use for it. It's a bit smaller than an A2 card, which makes it the perfect size for showcasing this Christmas jar. I had one layer of the poinsettia in my bits and pieces stash so I cut two more to finish the flower. The sprigs were also in the stash, I just colored them with a green marker to match better. and the gold, glittery jar topper was a leftover piece from the first card.
And last, but not least, I made a tag:
I hope you will get a chance to play along with us. I showed several ways to use a jar, but the possibilities are endless! I can't wait to see what you create!
