St Pat Day Shamrock ShakerStyle Card

Made a gift bag w/ shaker style and decided to make a card also. Was inspired by Stephanie Leykauf to make this shaker style St. Patrick's Day Shamrock card. You can click here to see her card.

Used a sketch which you can see below. 

Used Buff Ivory cardstock from Kraft Journal store for base of card. You can click here to buy some from KJ store.

Used a Darice Shamrock embossing folder. Inked the embossing.

Used Die-Namics umbrella die and recycled a piece a acetate plastic. I did not know how to put the foam adhesive on the thin parts of the umbrella so I free hand cut a front piece using scissors that was a bit larger than the die shape and cut small pieces of foam to fit around the edge of the umbrella.

Used a Shamrock punch to make the Shamrocks placed inside the shaker style umbrella.

Stamped Hero Arts sentiment. Added gems.

Added jute string for the left side of the sketch.

Added washi tape to finish off the sketch. Left the ends of the washi tape pieces up to look like ribbons hanging off the ends of the umbrella.
