I'm Crafty & You Know It!


Here's a fun little card I made with the new My Creative Time Stitched Junky Jar Dies.  To make it, I folded a piece of kraft cardstock in half, and lay the die on top of it so that the left side of the die was to the left of the crease.  This created the card shape.  Then I cut it again in cream cardstock and adhered that jar on top of the card.  I added the little "fabric" piece made with some red plaid paper and the lid and handle, cut from silver paper from The Paper Company.


To make my scissors, I die cut them from MCT's Chunky Jar Accessories twice from black cardstock.  After adhering them together, I added Glossy Accents to the top to make them more realistic.  My cute little buttons were made with MCT's Stitched Button Dies.


On the inside of the card I added another lid and "fabric" piece.  The "fabric" piece is not symmetrical, so when I cut it, I put the back side of the paper toward my die.  Then I was able to line it up perfectly.  The fun sentiment is from Chunky Jar Accessories.


This card is really teeny (about 2 1/4", so I made my own little 2 1/2" envelope using my Silhouette Cameo.  I then added a label from Chunky Jar Accessories so that I could write the recipients name.  I don't think I will ever tire of this new release!!!
