Little by Little It’s St. Patrick’s Day

March 17, 2014 No Comments

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!

I think I’m a little obsessed.  Do you ever get a new tool/toy and suddenly everything you go to do needs it?  That’s how I’m feeling about the Shaker Frames.  As I think I mentioned last week, I bought these to share with my Hostess Club members and had a few left over for me.  Initially, I just wanted to make one thing with a Shaker Frame.  Now, it seems like every time I start a creation the first thing I think is, “will a Shaker Frame work for this?”

I have several photographs of today’s card to share.  Why?  Because, I kept thinking I was done until I looked at the pictures.  I thought it might be fun for you to see the progression.  None of them are bad.  I could have stopped at any stage of the process.  But, I’m happiest with the final product.St. Patrick's Day beginner card by theartfulinker.com

 

 

 

Here’s the first stage.  A clean and simple card.  I used the dotted image from Perfect Pennants to create a Gold embossed horizontal stripe across the Summer Starfruit layer.

But, I decided that it needed a little something.  Given that it’s for St. Patrick’s Day, I decided to bring in more of the Gumball Green.  This was accomplished by using the Owl Builder to punch lots of Gumball Green circles which were then attached to the Summer Starfruit layer in a random pattern.

Here’s a close up of the window created with the Shaker Frame.  The “celebrate” image from Starburst Sayings was inked in Gumball Green and stamped on Whisper White.  Once I adhered the Whisper White piece to the Shaker Frame, I dropped in several gold sequins that I had removed from the Gold Sequin Trim.

 

 

 

Once I added a random sprinkling of gold sequins to the Summer Starfruit layer, I finally felt like the card was finished.  While I made this for St. Patrick’s Day, it certainly translates well to many other celebrations.  And who doesn’t find a shaker window filled with sequins, glitter or confetti festive?
