Good morning - and happy Friday, which also means Unity Friends with Flair time! I have a fun card to share with you today that has one of my favorite things on it! Mason jars!!! I was so excited to see the new Jars of Joy Challenge over at Moxie Fab World this week, and decided to also tackle the Card Design Week Asymmetry Challenge at the same time!
We just moved into our new house, and the day we were moving in, our new neighbors came over to introduce themselves, and brought a plate of brownies over. I'm telling you - nothing has ever tasted so good! We were sore, dusty, tired, hungry - and those were such a blessing! So...I wanted to make a thank you card to let them know how much they were appreciated!
The other thing I did on this card, is use entirely scrap paper! This was all laying on my table, and I decided I was going to use it all up - so I just started trimming, and layering the pieces until I liked how they looked, then stuck them down. There is a variety of paper there - Simple Stories, Crate Paper, Cosmo Cricket, Echo Park, and Lilly Bee Designs.
I added a doily, then some more scraps of paper, before adding the Mason jar. It is a Unity Stamp, and I stamped and cut it out, before stamping the sentiment from My Craft Spot in 3 different Tim Holtz distress inks to coordinate with the scrap papers.
I added some jute twine from Ribbon Carousel, and then attached it with pop-dots over the doily.
It needed a little something for balance, so I rounded the top corner of the card. Still felt like it was missing something, so I hand trimmed a bit of white paper into a couple of banners, and added some Tattered Angels Glimmer mist. Finally, I added a few stick on pearls for a finishing touch.
Well, I officially branched out and tried something new! Never tried an Asymmetric card before - but I think I might have to do them a bit more! It was kind of fun!
Thanks for stopping by - and have a wonderful Friday and weekend!
