Happy St Patrick's Day from Stamp Candy! #stampcandy

I wanted to use green for my project today, in honor of the holiday. I didn’t really find a good way to make shamrocks or clover that I haven’t already done. So I tried to create greenery along a wooden wall, and I used Glimmer Paper (yes, I did!) to add some sparkle. The Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (which should be in everyone’s collection) provided the sentiment. I hope you like what I came up with.

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Early Espresso card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper cut to 4″ x 3″
  • Whisper White Thick CS cut to 4″ x 2-3/8″
  • Very Vanilla CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card

Stamped with the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set:

  • sentiment in Wild Wasabi ink onto a scrap of the DSP

Die cut using the Detailed Floral Thinlits:

  • floral design from the 4″ x 5-1/4″ DSP

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • cut around the sentiment

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Glimmer Paper glued onto the back of the die cut area of the DSP layer
  • Whisper White Thick CS glued to the remainder of the back of the DSP
  • Glimmer Paper & Whisper White Thick CS (that are glued to the back of the DSP layer) glued to the front of the card base
  • Linen Thread adhered to the back of the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • sentiment adhered to the DSP layer using those same Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • small Pearl Basic Jewel colored with a Sharpie marker, then adhered to the DSP layer as if the sentiment was hanging from it
  • Very Vanilla CS glued to the inside of the card base
