Envelope Punch Scenic Jar with CottageCutz Trailer


Hi everyone! It’s my day to post for CottageCutz Dies and I’m excited to share my video card creation today featuring the Teardrop Camper, Spring Grass, Stitched Circles and Double-Stitched rectangle dies! 

Be sure to take advantage of the BIG Anniversary Sale. All the dies I used for this card are on sale through Friday. All dies used are 50% off except for the grass which is 25% off. Now is the time to load up on wish list items that are on sale and share your list with family members as a hint for Mother's Day! (Disclosure: I do not earn commissions on sales)

You can click on my video below to see how I made this cute mason jar shaped card but first let me tell you a little more about it. 


The adorable Teardrop Camper is the true star of the show! The details in this die cut are incredible, down to the tiny curtains and awning which for me is my favorite part. To create a little more texture to the die cut, I used an embossing folder to set off the bottom piece of the trailer and I also dry embossed the clouds in the background. I accented them with some white and tinsel mixed embossing powder which gives both a milky white and glittery appearance.


The base card is a 4-bar sized card and it’s created using an envelope punch board. I got the idea from many videos out there showing how to make a jar shape but I made it my own by turning it into a card with the hinge at the top. I further experimented a little and found that I could dry emboss a zig-zag pattern with my embossing board to give the jar lid the illusion that it is screwed on instead of being flat. The round tags were stamped and cut out using the stitched circles dies and the interior piece was cut out with the double-stitched rectangle die. It’s these little touches that makes the card so fun.


I have included the dimensions and supplies in the description of the video so go there to get all the details to make your own scenic jar card with the Teardrop Camper or other CottageCutz dies. There are so many possibilities! Thanks for spending some time today with me. Have a wonderful day!
