Send some sweet little wishes with this greeting card


At least once in a lifetime a person should receive a tiny jar full of sweet wishes. Every now and then we all need something magical to happen! You can be the one to create magic in someone else’s life–and perhaps help a wish or two to come true, when you give them this card. Begin by coloring a tissue paper with light blue marker.


Dry brush white acrylic paint onto it.


Next apply silver embossing powder with embossing ink to lid of Canning jar and heat set. Draw lines with black marker.


Daub Blue Stream colored acrylic paint around jar edges and dry. Apply Fractured Ice embossing powder with embossing ink over top of blue paint and heat set.


Glue jar to tissue paper and cut away remaining tissue.

Fussy cut the baby from Paper Calliope’s Precocious #1. Cut wings from teammate Nichola Battilana’s Just Wings sheet and glue behind baby. Adhere both baby and wings inside jar.

Twist a brown wire  to add dimension and add it and a silver star to the baby’s hand.


To finish your card, adhere a dictionary page to a greeting card base. Did you notice how I picked the page with definitions of  “fairy”, “fairyland”, “fairy ring” and “fairy thimbles”?  It’s those little extra touches that help bring about the magic.

Rub brown ink around the edges of the dictionary page. Glue on the jar with baby.

Write “Wish” on a leftover scrap of blue tissue. Frame it with decorative scrapbook paper and adhere it to the card.

All that is left for you to do is send this sweet card to a special someone to brighten their day!

P.S. This card is also featured at Gypsy Soul Lasercuts!
