Hey, thanks for joining me today. I wanted to do a quick St Patrick’s Day card, so I’m using a technique I first saw Nichol Spohr create. I die cut 8 hearts from green paper using a Simon Says Stamp Heart die set. You can use any heart die or punch that you have, the only important thing is that all the hearts are the same size. Mine are about 1″ across. I folded each heart in half, and laid them out to create a shamrock. Then I tore a scrap piece of paper about the size of a nickel and put a dot of glue in the center. I used Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue, but any liquid glue would work. Liquid glue is better than tape for this, because you’ll need a little play time. After all the hearts were in place, I set an acrylic block on top to hold everything still while it dried. It only took about 15 minutes. While it dried, I took a white card base and stamped Happy St Patrick’s Day from Hero Arts’ Celebrate Everyday stamp set. I used a stem from Simon Says Stamp Spring Flowers set. When the glue was dry, I trimmed off the extra paper and adhered it over the stem with tape runner. I glued a small green sticker from my local dollar store to the center, and added a few more around the sentiment. I needed my acrylic block again to hold the sticker in place while the glue dried, then I bent up the edges of the hearts for dimension.
And that’s my one layer card for today. Later this week I’m beginning a Mini Series of Easter cards, and I hope to see you there. Thanks for coming by!
