Hello everyone. Its me and I'm back with another St. Patrick's Day card.
This card has a technique I saw a while back but haven't tried it until now.
I needed a background and wanted to use one of the embossing folders I have but have yet to use.
(I bet I'm the only one of you that this has happened to. lol)
Here is what I did...
I took a piece of black cardstock and glued shamrocks around the edges.
(I didn't need them in the center for this card.)
After it dried I ran it through my Cuttlebug using a Sizzix folder I don't know the name for (sorry).
Then I trimmed it to the size I needed for this card. (5.25 x 4 in.)
I love how this turned out and will be using this technique for future projects.
Here is my card.
Thanks for looking.
