Fall Flowers & Mason Jar Card

  Happy Wednesday Crafter's,Thanks for stopping by. Hope you are doing well and finding some time to craft.  I have been trying to catch up on some cards that I need.

 I feel so behind on things since I had Covid. A few cards that I needed just didn't get made. 

Later after supper I will be grabbing me a cup of coffee and my phone and sneak off to my favorite place (my craftroom).

While crafting I love to catch up on crafty youtube video's. Do any of you do that? 

I used to always listen to music. Now I go straight to youtube. I'm subscribed to a lot of awesome crafter's and sometimes it's hard to find the time to watch them all. So that's the perfect time for me. 

So for today's share, I made a card for my niece Tiffany. 

Last month when I was sick with Covid my niece Tiffany brought me some beautiful fall flowers in a mason jar and sat them on my front porch. 

They were so pretty and made my day. I kept them on the porch and loved sitting out there with my coffee and watch the birds. 

That was so sweet of her and she has brought me flowers several times. Most times they are a wildflowers that she has found. They are always beautiful. So sweet and thoughtful of her. 

So when it was time to make her birthday card, I knew it had to have flowers in a mason jar. I have had that pretty stamp for awhile and can't remember who sent me it to me.  but it was just perfect for her card. 

I decided on not putting a sentiment on the front. So that she could used it with her fall decorations.

For the red cardstock, I either used Cherry Cobbler or Riding Hood Red. I had both out so now I can't remember. Both are from Stampin Up and I used the Tasteful Textiles embossing folder also from S.U. Love the texture that it gives. 

On the parts of the red cardstock  that is behind the image, I cut square's out so that I could use them on another card. 

I hate wasting cardstock and pretty patterned paper where you can't see it on the card. So I usually cut out the centers. Not sure if you call that being thrifty or being a paper hoarder. Ha!

Also used alcohol markers to color the flowers, Rectangle stitched die and added a little jute twine to one of the corner's.  

 So that is my card share. Hope you all have a great weekend and please stop by again.
