Spellbinders March 2021 Club Kits Blog Hop:  Bee Happy Mason Jar Shaker Card

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Spellbinders March 2021 Club Kits Blog Hop!  You should be coming here from Jennifer’s lovely blog.  I have a serious crafty crush on this month’s Amazing Paper Grace Mini Vignette Floral Mason Jar Die Set.  First, I collect vintage Mason Jars.  Secondly, I adore shaker cards.  And then there are the lovely Cinch and Go flowers that come with this set.  Ooh la la! So the minute I took this lovely little die out of the packaging, I  knew I would be shaking things up in my studio.

Bee Happy Mason Jar Shaker Card

It’s hard not to be happy when you look at this fresh as a daisy card.  Here’s how it came together:

  • First, create a 5″ x 7″ kraft card base with a 1/2″ top fold spine.
  • Next, cut a 4 3/4″ x 4 1/2″ panel of the daisy patterned paper from Carta Bella’s Flower Garden paper collection.
  • Then, layer on a 4 3/4″ x 3 1/4″ panel of pink check paper.
  • Now die cut a doily background using the largest Amazing Paper Grace Picot Petite Circle Die, *Linked in Supply List below.
  • Next, die cut the lacy flourishes using the die from the APG DOM kit.  Adhere these where the two patterned papers meet.
  • Fussy cut some little seed packets and adhere in the top right corner.
  • Now adhere the doily and the mason jar.
  • Next die cut flower layers and leaves, shape, add stamens and adhere.
  • Finally, add a row of daisies, a bee hive button and ribbon to complete the card front.

How to Make a Mini Mason Jar Embellishment

If you’d like to learn how I turned the vignette die into a shaker embellishment I have a little video tutorial you can watch.

Be warned!  Making these little Mason Jar shakers is addictive!  I’ve made several this month.  You can see them HERE and HERE.

A Peek Inside

This is one of my signature “Tea Party in a Box” cards. Gift wrap chocolate, cookies, and a tea bag with scraps of designer paper.  Then tuck in a vintage silver plate spoon and a honey stick to complete the tea party.  Everything fits neatly into the box pocket.  Now you have turned this card into a gift! You can find this card in my ETSY shop.
