St. Patrick’s Day Card by Deanna M
I have a fun little St. Paddy’s Day card for you today. My card base is 4 1/4” X 5 1/2” white card stock. I use the Bazzill Simply Smooth card stock for my card bases. I like it because it cuts well and also works in my Imagine and Expression and because there is no texture, it embosses nicely and stamping on it is easy.
Anyway, back to my card. I know I didn’t use all traditional St. Patrick’s Day green for my card but I was wanting to challenge myself a bit so I added a blue mat cut to 4” X 5 1/4” from my scrap bin. Then I added the zigzag patterned paper from the new My Minds Eye On the Bright Side One 6” X 6” paper pad. The colors in it reminded me of a rainbow. I cut that at 3 3/4” X 5. I don’t know about you but I am loving the new My Minds Eye paper pads that Cutters Creek is carrying. If you haven’t checked them out yet, you should.
I added a narrow strip of green cardstock also from my scrap bin. I cut this at 3 3/4” X 1 1/4”. I ran a piece of black and white gingham ribbon to cover the edge of the green paper. I stamped my sentiment and the shamrocks with Cottage Ivy Memento Ink. I cut my Pot of Gold from the Simply Charmed cartridge at 3”. I did not cut the last layer of the pot as I did not want the face.
I covered the black pot with some Oil Slick Glimmer Glaze. If you are not familiar with Glimmer Glaze it is a member of the Tattered Angels products and compliments your Glimmer Mist. Cutters Creek can special order the Glimmer Glaze for you. It comes a in a large selection of colors and is really fun to use to dress up a project.
Sorry for the detour, I added some gold stickles to the sparkle up gold in the pot. Finally I cut a shamrock from the Paper Dolls Dress Up cartridge at 1 1/4” and adhered to the front of the pot and outlined it with some Firefly Stickles. I adhered the pot to the card with some of the clear gel foam pads.
Be sure and check out all the new goodies headed to Cutters Creek soon.
