Jar of Love Easel Card

This is a fun idea that has been copied a few times, so I'm not 100% sure who designed this .. maybe Connie Stewart.  Becky Roberts did a cute version and her card was my inspiration.

Here are all the ingredients, including a small window sheet, Jar of Love set and inks.  You'll need a base jar and a front jar, the front jar has the cut out (and yes there's a die for that!)

I love the new in-colors so they are the hearts inside the jar.  

Foam strips make it super easy to make shaker cards.

So.. the easel back is 1 x 7 3/4 scored at 2 1/2, 3 1/2, 4 1/2, and 7

So.. the jar is really an easel and it comes right out of the card.... so it's a card and then it can be a little bit of desk decoration.

The photo to the right shows the easel jar tucked into the front of the card (I used my trimmer to put a 1 1/2 slit about 1 1/2 up and 1 1/2 over.)

I think this would be a fun birthday card too.

What do you think?  I think this has got me going and I'll be posting some new Jar of Love cards this week.  Don't forget that the bundle price (10% the set of stamps and dies) is only good til May 31.  But... great news, it's in the new catalog.

Haven't got your new catalog yet?  email me and I'll put one in the mail to you.

happy crafting, MaryKate
