Jar M&Ms Friend Card

Click here to enter Doodle Pantry Aug Digital Challenge 49.
Click here to see Flyin Hi DP DT Card.

Created this card with a Shabby Chic style for a friend that likes M&Ms. 

For my Shabby Chic style I used: brads, buttons, fabric that is an upholstery remnant that I got from a Live to Be Green Day couple of yrs ago that had a wonderful booth with all kinds of things and you could fill a plastic bag that they gave you for a $1 (I even know the Country of origin of the remnant which was written on the paper attached to it so ck below if you are interested in knowing also), gold inking, Kraft, lace & ribbon.

Die cut the jar multiple times: first from cereal box cardboard for sturdy base, M&Ms scrapbook paper for inside of jar and vellum. Die cut the jar lid from Kraft cardstock
Used the gold ink on jar lid & on edges of friend scrapbook paper on front flaps.

Embossed a piece of cardstock and cut out words: 'enjoy', 'friend', 'laugh' and 'unforgettable' to use on the card.

Stamped Joy's Life Yummy Puns sentiment on the vellum. 

Made a piece of cardstock as a band to slip over the card to hold the card closed.
