St. Patrick's Day Cheers Card w/ Paper Smooches!!

Pin It


Hello!!
Hope your weekend is going GREAT!? I'll be having FUN with Family as we host a Bridal Shower for my Baby Sister Skyler!! =)  I wanted to stop in and share a card I made for the Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge though before I get to BUSY and run out of time to share it!!
I thought I would create a FUN Shamrock St. Patrick's Day Cheers Card!! I wanted to used the New Spring Dies and I thought it would be Neat to use the Stitched Label Die and create a Shaker Card using the Shamrock Die as the Shaker Window!! I have been using LOTS of Iced Resin lately and I LOVE the FUN look you get when you cover really old book paper with it!! You get a transparent sheet with the words that can be read on both sides of the paper!! It is so AWESOME in real life!! I knew I wanted to use a scrap piece I had left over from another project for my window cover and then I decided to use Green Vellum to back it, creating a SEE THROUGH Shaker Window!! =) I cut my Stitched Label from Patterned Paper and die cut the shamrock from the center of the label for my window!! I backed it with my Resin Book Paper and then I die cut another Stitched Label from foam paper and die cut a circle large enough to cover the Shamrock Window for my Shaker Element!! I glued it to the back side of the Resin Book Paper Stitched label and I had my shaker Base!! For some reason when I die cut the Foam I was left with alittle bit of a border which for this project actually worked in my favor!! I added four different kinds of Sequins in different colors and sizes and then backed it with some Green Vellum from AC!! I wanted to mat it with a Black piece of cardstock for added interest so I traced the Die onto black cardstock and cut it out leaving just a Small Border for my Shaker Label!! I die cut the word Cheers from Black Cardstock for my sentiment and then added some sequins and a Bow!! I added a stitched border to my card base using a Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Rectangle Die and matted it with Black Cardstock before adhering it to my card base using Foam Squares!! I LOVE the way it came together!!

 I'm also linking this up for the Paper Smooches Guest Designer Challenge!! =)
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!
