Holiday Sweets

Good morning everyone, I've got a vintage looking card to share with you today, using Papertrey Ink's Friendship Jar and Holiday Fillers sets. I find it amazing how much this set has grown on me, considering it didn't even faze me when I first saw it!
I wanted to try paper piecing the ruffle around the neck of the jar, to make it look like real scrap of homespun and the card practically made itself from there. Amazing how one simple element can inspire an entire card, I love when that happens!

After coloring all those individual peppermint candies (pheww!) I cut out the jar and covered the whole thing with Ultra Thick Embossing powder to make it look like glass. Not sure if it even shows in the picture, you'll just have to take my word for it!

The old Cosmo Cricket 'Be Good' collection fit perfectly with the peppermint candies, I'm almost out of that hoo!

Hope you like it, thanks for visiting!
