It was my pleasure to host a card class on Monday night, and this is one of the fun cards we did....
The background was done by inking the raised side of the Cuttlebug folder with a dye base ink pad, placing the paper inside, and then running through the Cuttlebug, so the ink transferred to the impressed image.
The shamrock was made by stamping the heart image with Versamark, and heat embossing the image with white embossing powder, then cutting the hearts out with a heart punch. The stem was freehand cut with scissors, and a white gel pen was used for the dots. They were placed on the card with foam dots to give it dimension.
Cut a small slit in the edge of the card to run the ribbon through, and tie a bow, and you're finished!
St. Patrick used the three leaves of the shamrock for teaching about the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost...thus the significance of the three leaf clover with St. Patrick's Day. Enjoy!!
Another card tomorrow :D
Happy crafting ~
