Jillibean Soup + CardMaker Magazine Blog

Hello everyone, thank you so much for dropping by today for the Jillibean Soup + CardMaker Magazine blog hop. You're coming here from Sean Fetterman's fun blog.


Today I wanted to share with you how EASY the super sweet Mason Jar Shaker Cards are to use and show you how I created a super cute snowman jar.

To create this card, I stamped the snowmen using black Archival Ink. For the background, I stamped and embossed white snowflakes and then used Prussian and Blue watercolor paints to paint the background. then I added little bits of color here and there to my snowmen and women and I set it aside to dry.

To attach the clear jar to the snowmen stamped image, just pull the white paper off of the adhesive and press into place.

I stuck a few large snowflake sequins inside to give my shaker a little excitement. 

To finish up, I added a string around the edge of the jar. 

And a cute tag to the string. 


To finish I used a double stick adhesive to add it to the inside of my card, I also covered the back of the card with a pretty snowflake paper to hide the back of my messy painted paper -- and voila -- this super cute card is done!
