Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! I’d like to share a card that has dimension in my background and in my embellishment, using our 3D Foam products. LOVE how it turned out!
The Emerald Collection from Authentique Paper is the perfect patterns to use for this occasion. I cut about 26 Hexagons from my die and edged them with green ink for a subtle look. I ended up using 24 but I wanted a choice of patterns 😉
Once I cut and inked them up, I placed the die cuts on top of my A2-sized (5.50 x 4.25″) card base.
After all were secured them down, trim off the excess and your card base is done.
Now to embellish! I cut a rectangle shape from green patterned paper and cut another a little larger to mat with gold mirror cardstock. I adhered them together with E-Z Runner® Grand.
To create my gold shamrock, I took four 3D Foam Hearts and placed them on top of my matted rectangle. Remove the top liner to sprinkle gold glitter on top. Press firmly to make sure they are stuck on well. Shake off excess.
To anchor my embellished shamrock, I used Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2″ as a ribbon by adhere right down my card base. After taking off the liner, I sprinkled glitter. press down and dust off the excess.
For these wonderful sequins and gems, I used the Adhesive Dots Small to adhere on to the card front. These adhesive dots are perfect for many sizes of embellishment – we have six sizes of Adhesive Dots!
Add the embellished shamrock rectangle piece on top with 3D Foam Squares White, Regular and you’re done!
