Mason Jar Christmas Cards

For this set of cards, I used some of the same stamps (star, snow, polar bear) from the White Christmas set (see Wednesday's post) but added in a Stampin' Up mason jar and lid.  These stamps also came with die cuts, which made it so easy to create the mason jar element.
To create the jar scene, I used the same glossy card stock and ink, and colored it the same, as the other post.  Same with the Stickles/glitter for the snow.  I also added little dots of Stickles on the snowflakes.  I die cut the jar and the lid separately.  There was a fringe on the lid that I hand cut off.  I then added some line work and shading/highlighting with a Sharpie and Distress Markers.
I embossed some snowflakes on the accent card stock and distressed with sand paper.
Same distressing on this embossed piece but I didn't distress the edges. 
 I punched out the star accents from card stock.  
Shaded with Distress Markers and lined with a Sharpie.
 This card has silver accents:  snowflake charm on top of lid and small brads holding the banner.
The decorative paper also went all the way to the edge of the card base.
