Stamp the jar onto a small piece of chalkboard Contact Paper in black ink. The marks will be faint but visible. Cut out the jar, trimming away most of the lid.

Remove the backing and stick the jar onto a blank kraft greeting card. Trace around the outer edge of the jar with a white gel pen and allow to dry. Add accent marks to the inside of the jar, using the stamped lines as guides.

Stamp the lid onto a piece of colored or patterend paper with black ink. Carefully cut the lid out, then glue it onto the card so that it overlaps the top of the jar.
