Christmas Goodie Jar (svgcuts challenge)

        I'm allowed 2 entries to the svgcuts monthly challenge.  I met requirements, but what do you think about me entering this as one entry?  I made the glass jar svg.  I aligned and cut the jar strategically in SCAL.  I then placed the cookies and candy between 2 pieces of acetate clear sheets like a sandwich....sorta a shaker card, but the cookies don't shake. ( I cut a slit in acetate for the gingerbread man and peppermint sticks to stick out of jar mouth.)
        I was also trying for something a little old, a little primitive.  I sewed the edges along the card and on the sentiment. I used raffia to attached the sentiment, inking, glossy accents on the jelly part of cookies and silver balls on sugar cookies....just like when I was a little girl...yum yum!  I used elements from svgcuts Christmas Cookie Party Collection. ( I'm posting different angles of card to help you see what I was trying to accomplish.)
