Here is the whole set. A Christmas Card, Holiday Open House Card, Homemade Jars of Jam decorated and ready to give, Recipe Cards, Coordinating clothespins to attach tags etc., and a gift bag.
This Christmas Tree card was a lot of fun to make. It evolved out of being unable to decide which PP to use. Since I couldn't decided, I used lots of them! : ) I used a border punch and chalk ink on the edges, and curled up the ends so they kinda flip-up like a real Christmas tree.
On this card, I used Jillibean Soup's Journaling Sprouts in Kraft & Brown to create a house for the cover. I took a small square and used it as the main part. . .and snipped off the corner of a larger scallopped one to create the roof. . . I also added a piece of PP for color.
Here are the Jam Jars. The Journaling Sprouts fit perfectly on top of the lids! : ) Yay! I think that when I give them, I will add ribbon around their bellies with a cute bow.
These clothespins are so handy. I've made these to coordinate with the set and to be used to attach the gift tag on the gift bag. I ran out of the brown buttons that I usually add to the ends. . .they really help complete the look. I'll get 'em on as soon as they arrive on my doorstep (shhh! Don't tell DH!)
Here are a couple of recipe cards. I think I may re-do them in kraft paper. . .and maybe only add the bottom strip of PP. . .I bet a scallop border would be nice too! ; ) -Oh the possibilities.
Finally, a cute little gift bag. I'm gonna make these to deliver the jam in.
That's it for now! Gotta go make some more. : ) -I do have a few layouts to post. . .but my time on the computer is up. . .duty calls. . .I'm off to change a diaper! : (
