Welcome to the Creation Station Blog Hop for July! This month we are sharing cards and projects with the theme GIFTS FROM THE GARDEN. We have tons of ideas to share, so be sure to hop all the way around to see everyone’s cards and projects!
Since we are going with a garden theme today, I used the new bundle JAR OF LOVE to create a fun little seed packet holder and matching gift card.
I just love this bundle!!! My brain hurts just contemplating how many different ways to use these cool Mason jars! This little seed packet holder and card are a perfect little something to give as a thank you.
To make the seed packet holder sturdy I used kraft cardstock. I love this kraft color with the blues and coral….so pretty! Have you guessed how I made the little pocket?? If you said ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD you are right! It was easy peasy. Just cut the kraft cardstock 6″x 6″ and start at the 3″ line for scoring and punching. Instead of scoring the last flap, leave it alone and cut it down instead. I just left about a half inch of cardstock at the back to support the seed packets.
The jar of flowers is pretty simple as well. All the flowers and leaves were die cut with the coordinating EVERYDAY JARS FRAMELITS. The flowers are Calypso Coral, the first layer is stamped off to give the variation in color. The leaves are in Pear Pizzaz which looks beautiful with the coral. I added in Dapper Denim as an accent color to tie in the color from the seed packet….worked out pretty well!!
The gift card is done with all the same colors and made to fit the medium sized jar. I cut the card base 7 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ with the focus all on the jar of flowers. It compliments the seed packet nicely and gives you a way to add a little note to the recipient.
I hope I provided you will a little inspiration for JAR OF LOVE. Now let’s check out what the rest of the very talented Design Team has made. The next stop is Mikaela Titheridge and if you just started here, be sure to go back and see Kimberly Van Diepen. As you are hopping through, leave comments to let us know what you think….we love to get your feedback! Thanks so much for joining us this month for GIFTS FROM THE GARDEN.
