St. Patrick's Day Cards Part 2

Shopify APIMar 11, '21

Hello Friends!

 Today is Part 2 of my celebration of all things  luck and Irish - meaning shaker cards with a St. Patrick's Day theme.   You can see Part 1 here

  Let's shake some luck into the  month of March with St. Patrick's Day shaker cards. I don't think I know anyone  who would pass on a little luck.  Today I'll be showcasing chipboard  shakers from Creative Embellishments and shaker mix from Buttons Galore

Creative Embellishments has a giant assortment of  chipboard shaker sets covering a wide range of holidays, occasions, whimsy, and  classic shapes.

Today's featured chipboard shaker sets are less  traditional but great examples of how to integrate non-traditional designs into  the holiday spirit.  This is the Creative Embellishments Snow Globe  shaker set and Creative Embellishments Jar shaker set.

The treatments on the  chipboard are quite simple.  Both shaker sets have been painted with cream  acrylic paint - and gold embossing added to the top layer of the snow  globe.  The Jar was left natural with no treatment. Creative  Embellishments Jar shaker set.


 The Shamrock Border was cut apart and  added to the inside of the jar shaker.

Every shaker needs  fabulous shaker mix. It's St. Patrick's Day so I am going for some mix that has  a bit 'ol Irish magic or at least luck.  The cards today use  Buttons Galore -Sprinkletz - Erin Go Bragh , a combination of unique festive polymer clay  pieces.  


Both cards are finished  with Buttons Galore's Glitter  Shamrock Buttons. These  buttons have shanks. Depending on the project, I'll cut the shank off if I need  the embellishment to be flat against the card/project.  Most of the  time, however, I leave the shank attached and thread wire through it. I'll use the wire as a "stem" and glue the stem to the  card.  

My paper choice today is Photo  Play Paper - Tulla and Norbert's Lucky Charm Collection - 12 x 12 Collection  Pack.  It's as cute as can be with the sweetest touch of all things lucky  including Tulla and Norbert.  

Thank you for visiting.  Happy  crafting.
