BBTB2 Shamrock Challenge

We're celebrating St Patrick's Day (or at least the luck o' the Irish) this week at BBTB2, with our lovely Lori choosing a shamrock from any cartridge. There are plenty to choose from, which Lori has listed in her post on BBTB2. I chose the one from Give a Hoot, with the Lucky Girl silhouette from A Child's Year to make a shaped card. The sentiment is from Once Upon a Princess. I welded the shadows of both the girl and the shamrock and copied, flipped and turned them 180 in DS to make the card base. The regular cuts were embossed with my Cuttlebug using the old standbys: Swiss Dots and D'Vine Swirls. The glitter shamrocks are actually foam from an old pack from Michaels.

In some cases I used them behind my sentiment as dimensionals. Because the sentiment was a bit delicate, I cut it several times and glued it together to give it a bit more strength before popping it and added some gold gems for some bling. We have a fabulously inspirational turnout at BBTB2 this week to get you started so please follow the rules and link up to Mr. Linky. We love to see your creations. There's still some time left in our Monogram Challenge as well. I'm also entering this in the Fantabulous Cricut Luck of the Irish Challenge, the Paper Sundaes Green or Good Luck Challenge, the Card Caravan Lucky Green Challenge, and the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.

Why, oh why is it that when I try my hand at a multi-dimensional card like this it NEVER looks as stunning as yours?!! LOL! You know I'm your #1 fan when it comes to your pop-dotting and embossing! Great card as always.

Your trademark layering never disappoints! The added textures and sparkles are perfect!

Feeling lucky, eh? I'll bet! Fabulous job with the design, Donna. Every time I see one of your great cards it inspires me to get back to making some shaped, dimensional cards in DS. Maybe soon...I'm feeling lucky! :)

Jeri said...

Wow, really awesome card, Donna. All the layering and texture are great and, of course, I love all the welding together into a shaped card. Well done, my friend.
