Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
I created this card with something special!
A removable pin to prevent pinching!
Side view of card front to show the layers.
Keep reading to see how the card is made!
The pin is made by using a clover image from the Cricut Cartridge "Paper Doll Dress Up".
I cut the image and laminated it using the Provocraft "Your Story" machine.
In the center of the clover image I put a 3-D St. Patrick's Day embellishment from Michael's Craft store that was adhered to a scalloped circle.
The center embellishment and pin backing were put together using hot glue.
BIG WORD OF CAUTION HERE!!
USE CRAFT TWEEZERS TO POSITION THE PIECES TOGETHER!!!
This is what happens when you use your fingers! My finger hasn't healed yet!!
Tip....when you drop hot glue on your skin...DO NOT TRY TO WIPE IT OFF WHILE THE GLUE IS WET! That will only smear the pain and damage!! Bear the burn! Quickly place the burning area into cold water! This will speed up the cooling process!! When the glue has hardened, peel it off. Best word of advice...don't get burned!! Use craft tweezers!!!
Back to the card...
To create the card front base, I started with a white front. Using Spellbinders Nestabilities frame dies, I cut a dark green scalloped layer, a printed layer using the rectangle die, and a small white rectangle layer.
All the sentiments on the outside are computer generated.
I used the clip art file on my computer for the tiny clover.
Everything is layered on green cardstock and adhered to the card front.
The tag to hold the St. Patrick's Day pin was created and adhered at the bottom of the tag using 3-D foam tape. This allows the pin to be attached to the card front at the top of the tag.
This is a close up of how the tag was created. I added the little leprechaun stickers to decorate the tag when the St. Patrick's Day pin is removed.
This is the inside of the card opened flat. I wanted to give the history of St. Patrick's Day as well as a saying. I also added a small note about removing the pin to wear.
Do you know who St. Patrick was? Here is a short history of St. Patrick's Day!
Happy St. Patrick's Day to all!
