St Patrick's Day Shaker Card

Today I am sharing a St. Patrick's Day card  made using Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace (APG) Die of the Month for  March created using a few simple adaptations of the die set.


Scroll down and I'll share how I made some  sweet and simple shamrocks using this wonderful set created by Becca  Feeken.


Tips and Techniques for  DIY Shamrock

The DIY Shamrock is rather simple and adorable  when clustered together on a card. Add foam dots behind for volume, ink the  edges, finish with a pretty accent crystal and you've got a gem of a card.

The Shaker Elements

The chipboard shaker elements are from Creative  Embellishments.

While CE has amazing shaker sets, I am using  their Artist Trading Coin collection, with adaptive rings to create the  shaker.


The Rings, shown below, come with the  pre-cut matching acrylic window necessary to create a shaker.

The shaker mix is also an important part of  the magical fun. I used  Lucky Charmz Sparkletz from Buttons  Galore, a beautiful festive blend of sequins, beads, crystals and  shapes.


I finished off the card using 3D glitter Shamrocks mixed  into the clusters for a bit of luck (and glitz).

And as always, the dies for Spellbinders  monthly clubs are exclusive to Spellbinders and you won't find them anywhere  else.


Thank you for stopping here today.  Happy  crafting.
