Mason jar card CAS-style

More mason jar fun today peeps… It’s Trend-Alert Tuesday after all, and I have had a hoot over the May Day holiday weekend fitting in plenty of card making ;)

Here’s todays…

Trend-Alert Tuesday card idea mason jar Crate Paper chipboard CAS

Just a little CAS idea using the mason jar chipboard from the new Crate Paper ‘Pretty Party’ line. The flower and lacy-tone patterned paper (6x6pad) are also from the same collection.

I made my jar into a vase by adding a stem of green stranded cotton for the flower, plus a greeting diecut (ancient freebie from a magazine) curved over the jar to give the look of rounded glass.
I’ll be entering this into a couple of challenges too:

Simon Says Stamp – birthday challenge
CAS-ual Fridays CFC51 – birthdays 

Now, time for some mason jar linky-love:

Berry goodness by Michelle using Papertrey Ink’s ‘Friendship Jar’ set

Several adorable jar cards by Melissa

Sweet shabby kitchen chic by Viola – from a couple months ago, I know – using Crafty Secrets. Too cute to miss out.

Check out this fab memory jar LO by Shannon Tidwell for TwoPeas, using the Dear Lizzy jar I referred to last week. (Got to have this!)

Die-cut jars to fill with button treats ;)

Plus, a fun jar-shaped idea which I stumbled on in Pinterest, by Djonny

That’s all for now then pals, see you soon, Rx

    What an adorable card, Ruth! Love the Mason jar (or Sweet jar, as it may be. :-) ) Very clever way to make the flower stem.
