This was a fun card to make! It just kept evolving. Tyler turns 12 on St. Patrick's Day.
Thanks to MandyPandy for the Happy Hearts shamrock inspiration, and to TruCarMa for the prima shamrock idea.
I used my stampa-ma-jig to create the shamrock with the heart stamp, heat & stick and Art Institute emerald glitter - nothing beats the sparkle from AI glitter. The stem is made with a Best Blossoms stamp. It's really too subtle to see in the photo, but the Paisley stamp was used with Gable Green ink on Gable Green cardstock underneath the shamrock.
The prima shamrock and sentiment panel are on dimensionals. I used my clear Glaze pen on the Tag Time shamrocks for a little extra shine.
I colored silver brads with a green Sharpie, and the gems are colored with a lime green PeelOff's permanent marker.
This is the first time I used my Big Kick with a texture plate - Ellison's Paisleys here on the Glorious Green layer. Fun!!!
