Hi there friends! I guess I am really feeling the luck of the Irish this week! I have another fun St. Patrick’s Day themed card to share today:
My card here may seem a bit simple, but it has a few really fun added extras to really make it shinny and glittery! I have used one of the March releases from Sparkle N Sprinkle called Lil Leprechaun (Digital only stamp set). I took the pre-colored versions of the set and arranged them in a blank Word.doc for how I wanted it to appear on my card front. I used the clover images and resized them to fit around the bottom of the pot of gold area and then placed the sentiment where I wanted it off to the side.
I then printed it out and then cut it out with the Nuvo Basics Rectangle dies.
I used a couple of Copic green markers to make the “blades of grass” next to the pot of gold and clovers. I also used some colored chalk to sponge in some colors for the rainbow behind the pot of gold.
Here you can also see on the panel where I’ve taken some Super Thick Gold EP and sprinkled some in the corners of my image panel and then heat set it from underneath.
I also took a Nuvo Precision Glue Pen to add some “dots” in the center of the clovers and then of course used the SNS Shamrock Glitter to go over them! I also covered the coins in the pot with the glue and sprinkled some Champagne Glitter over them for some sparkle!
With the same SNS Champagne Glitter that I used on the coins in the pot, I also took some SNS Sticker Paper and covered an entire panel with it and burnished it in! The shimmer and glitz on this is stunning in person and really sets off the card! I’ve also used the Glitter Brush to take away the excess glitter particles and it’s a must have for clean up too! (Instead of clinging to the brush, it repels it away!) These sheets are somewhat thin, so I made sure that I’ve added some layers of cardstock in between this glitter panel for stability to the card. (Keep this in mind if you are using the sticker paper for this idea.)
I tried to capture some of the sparkle in the photo, but it really looks brilliant when you are holding it in person! 🙂
I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today and I really appreciate you stopping in!!
