TECHNIQUE TUESDAY

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!

I know I told you I would be posting a Berry Basket project today, but then I remembered it was St. Patty's Day so I changed my mind. I can do that because I'm a woman, right?!

I found this cute, easy way to make a shamrock from Glenda Calkin's Pinterest post and here is the card I created using her technique:


To make the shamrock, punch out a green flower using your Pansy Punch.  Here I used Garden Green cardstock.  Then you are going to cut the stem from one of the petals.  I drew the lines on the flower with my White Gel Pen so you could see where to cut.  I would suggest you use a pencil so you can erase any left over pencil lines after cutting, if needed.

To make the glittery background, I punched out a 2 1/2" circle from the Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper and colored the edge by dipping my Aqua Painter into some Garden Green Ink.  You can let it dry on its own or use your Heat Tool, like me, if you are impatient.

Hope you have a Good Luck Day!  
I will come back tomorrow with the Berry Basket idea post.
