Hello there everyone! Laura here with you today to share
a bit of Irish luck with you, in this cute little card!
Being Irish, I've got to admit, St. Patty's is one of my
favorite holidays! I love creating cards and home
decor projects with the pretty paper collections and
the rainbow of colors, just like this card shows off
all of those bright, fun colors! And even though
St. Patty's has passed, why not just send a few
"luck of the Irish" cards just because? And this
card is super simple, because all the focus is on the
star of the show, the adorable Clear Scraps shaker!
This one is the Mini Shaker Mason Jar. So fun to just
trace on paper to create a background, like I did here
with the cute lucky shamrock paper, then layer it up
adding a few beads and sequins to create a shimmery
bit of sparkle under the acrylic layer! These mini shakers
are so fun to create with! And don't be afraid to use them
to make cards! If you are giving in person, or adding to
a package, they really make a wonderful addition to any
gift! You can see, I also added a few stickers, layering
them on using some foam tape. Just a few, I didn't want
to overwhelm the shaker. It's great even on it's own!
Before I put it all together, I did paint the outside of the
jar. I used black acrylic paint on the body of the jar, and
then used gray paint on the lid.
I added a little bit of black paint to the lid using a foam
brush with barely and paint on it to give the lid an aged
look, then tied a bit of twine around the base of the lid
to give it a bit of color. It adds a nice finishing touch.
Thanks for stopping by today!
