Inspire Me Friday {jar pocket}

Hello, PR fans!  Happy Friday to you all!  I have a soft and sweet little card to share with you using the new ‘Oh So Fun’ set.  I wanted to try something a little different with this one.  I was interested to see how the jar  might look with a stamped vellum layer stitched on top to create a little shaker style jar pocket.  I’ve seen this done a couple times and wanted to try my hand at it.  It actually went well, and I was pleased with the finished product…

I’m not sure how well it shows, but the lid was embossed with silver (and cut out and layered on top), as well as the two sentiments.  The base and vellum jar images were embossed with white.  Also, it’s very subtle and just doesn’t show much in the photo, but I watercolored with a pale pink on the base jar (It was stamped on watercolor paper).  It’s a little deeper around the edges, and in person it has a really soft and pretty look that blends so nicely with the other pinks on the card.  The little sequins are some from a multi pack my daughter had…I just pulled out the silver and gold ones…they were the perfect size for this!  My stitching’s not perfect, but I did try to stay as close to the edge as possible.  I think being careful to maintain the true shape of the jar with the stitching is what made it ‘work’.  Fun!!!  I think it could make a cute tag for a bag, too!  (Maybe next time;)

Thanks so much for dropping in today!  Hope you enjoyed my little celebration in a jar!  Have a great crafty weekend!

  1. Wow Geri… this card is adorable !! I’ve been wanting to buy one of these jar stamps and I think this just might be the one for me !! Thanks so much for sharing…

  2. Geri, this card is too beautiful to actually shake! (I’m sure it works really well as a shaker card, but I’d be too busy staring at it to shake it!) I adore all the gorgeous elements you’ve included…the punched border, the lace doily, the gingam, the silver embossing, and all that gorgeous stitching! Absolutely gorgeous, as always, Geri!
