Creating shamrocks with hearts for cards!
For the next two cards I created shamrocks with hearts as well. For the left hand one I used smaller hearts to make a shamrock that would fit on a smaller rectangle which had a laser printed greeting. I added a rhinestone in the center and sponged the edges of the rectangle with green ink to finish off my focal element. I added a strip of white vintage seam binding to an embossed green rectangle of cardstock before I glued it to a white card front. I added my focal element over the seam binding using 3D foam tape and then tied a short piece of seam binding to the piece on the card with one knot to simulate a bow!!
For the next card, I embossed a white layer which had a laser printed greeting on it avoiding embossing the greeting. I added a strip of gold fiber ribbon and then glued it to a green layer and then layered the whole element to a white card front. I created my shamrock by gluing the hearts over each other and then glued them to a green square of cardstock. I added this focal element to my card using double sided tape.
Glad to have a bit of variety in my cards!!
