Shamrock Shaker Card

I made a card to gear up for St. Patrick's Day.

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and I used an olive green card stock for the card base.  I used Cricut Design Space to create the shaker card front.  The shamrock is from the "St. Patrick's Day" digital cartridge.  The shamrock is from the image with the rainbow.  I hid all contours except the shamrock and then sized it to fit nicely on the card front.  The patterned piece is cut at 5 1/4"x4" and it is all popped up on two layers of foam tape.  I also used foam tape around the image so that I could fill it with green sequins.

The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps, the Spring Fling set.  I stamped it in green and heat embossed it with sparkly embossing powder.  I then trimmed the card stock on which it was stamped into a banner.  I finished off the card with some green gems.

BBTB2: use a cartridge you haven't used in a long time (I haven't used it in over a year)
