MIM #100 ~ card 2

This is another card I made for Make It Monday #100.
I like to stamp my envelopes with something of a hint of what's inside for the recipient ~ a 'sneak peek' if you will :o)

On this one I used a mason jar on vellum as well as stamping it on the card stock - makes it easier to stamp inside the jar directly onto the cardstock image.  I used the flowers and stems from Spiral Bouquet by PTI (which is also my envelope design).  Fussy cutting these blooms was NOT my brightest idea, but thankfully there were only a few flowers and I wanted them to be placed off the A2 size card.

Unfortunately it just started raining out, so this is an inside photo. Will try to get a better shot tomorrow.

My card ~
Cardstock:  base card is DCWV double sided paper; Vellum is from Paperbilities ...can you see the tiny flowers? Thought they looked like my jar was etched glass  ;)
Stamps: Spiral Bouquet from PTI; mason jar from Inkadinkadoo
Inks:  Stampin' Up; Archival Brilliance
Tools & Embellishments: Border punch  and Pearls from Martha Stewart; Bakers Twine from Darice

Thank you for stopping by!


  1. The flowers look great over the edge and envelope looks pretty too.

  2. I love your bouquet, and all that fussy cutting was totally worth it, because they look wonderful hanging off the edges like that. Great idea to give a sneak peek on your envelope.

  3. I agree, the fussy cutting was definitely worth it, love the vellum mason jar, such a good idea!
