Haha didn't it turn out CUTE??
I had this idea to use the jar stamp in the set and turn it into a shaker card. And once I got going with it it turned out to be pretty easy!
I stamped the jar onto the cardstock with black ink, then made an "X" cut in the middle with a craft knife. I then used my paper snips to trim out the inside of the jar.
I used my silver spica pen to color the top of the jar for a little added sparkle.
THEN I cut a piece of transparency the same size as the cardstock and adhered it to the back of the jar image.
I had narrow foam tape on hand (got a couple rolls of that at the Dollarama for specifically projects like this! *grin*) so I doubled that up and lined it all around the back of the cardstock making sure there were no openings.
I stamped the fly image from the set onto a piece of CS (cut slightly smaller than the aqua cardstock so that it wouldn't show around the edges) and colored it with Copics and dotted him with a white gel pen.
Before adhering the fly stamped image to the back of the jar image I added some pastel beads (another Dollarama purchase that I've had for years sitting in my stash) and VOILA!
I stamped the jar on an angle then stamped the sentiment inside it.
I purposely stamped the fly off the edge of the CS, then colored him in and that was it!
Obviously this is a pretty bulky card so not something I would mail unless it was in a box of some sort - but can you just picture giving this to someone that's not feeling well? It would HAVE to cheer them up!!
