I laid out two (2) different cards out on the page layout and printed them twice. For this particular card the barrel is sized to 3-1/2"x3-1/2" and the hat is sized to 2-3/4"x1-7/8". Select a sentiment. On the other half of the page.
I sized a Ribbon Banner to 5-1/2" x 3", the hat 2-1/2"x1-1/2" and the barrel 2-3/4"x2-3/4" and arrange. Print twice and color, 2nd
set of items color and fussy cut.
Color as desired. I used Copic® Markers and the list is above.
Using the Stitched Party Banner® Die I cut out
the sentiment. and edged with Memento®
I trimmed around parts of the hat to place the WeR® Nesting Circles Die under that portion of the hat not to be cut in the circle.
Run through that Big Shot®. Edge with Memento® Cottage Ivy.
Cut a 5"x7"rectangle of Core'dinations® - Jolly Green Cardstock and adhere to the 5"X7" cardbase with the fold on the left.
Cut a 4-3/4"x6-3/4" rectangle of DCWV® St. Pats Shamrock, edge using Memento® Cottage Ivy, center and adhere on the Jolly Green.
Adhere the Circle image 1/4" from either side and the bottom of cardbase. Adhere the Banner sentiment 1/2" from the top and at the fold.
Apply Nuvo® Crystal Glaze to the beer mugs (not the handles).
Apply small dots of the two (2) Gold glitter glues to the coins.
Apply dollops of the 3D Paint on the foam of the beer mugs. Let Dry.
Align the hat and beer mugs over the hat and beer mugs on the front of the card. Adhere using foam tape. Added a few small dots of the Puffy Paint on the bubbles
bursting around the beer mugs. LET DRY.
OPTIONAL: Using scraps I adhered a few in a design along with my Badge on the backside as shown.
I added a shamrock rhinestone to the sentiment banner from my stash.
BLING! That's it! A Card with a little bit O' Luck of the Irish!
I hope you will join me again for a NEW tutorial.

I am excited to announce the 2022 Turner Syndrome Awareness Card Auction for a cause that is near and dear to me- Turner Syndrome. My friend and fellow cardmaker Lori K. is sponsoring this Card Auction which starts on February 4th! All proceeds are donated to Turner Syndrome Foundation. Just click on the pic or the link below to view and bid on some gorgeous cards crafted by many talented cardmakers (and me). If you want to learn more, just read Lori's Welcome Message below.
Welcome to the Turner Syndrome Awareness Card Auction! This is a collaborative Card Auction for the benefit of the Turner Syndrome Foundation, which operates solely on donations. With Covid the last couple of years have been very difficult for the Turner Syndrome Foundation since most of their big fundraisers are held as "in-person" events and the pandemic has put all of that on hold. The TS Foundation provides support, guidance and educational programs for families impacted by Turner Syndrome. TS is a genetic disorder where a female is born missing part or all of her second X chromosome leaving her with lifelong medical issues and learning disabilities.
The very talented Card Designers who have donated their amazing cards are from all over the world and work on Design Teams for various crafting companies that sell dies, stamps and other card making supplies. They are the most generous and caring people I know! They have poured lots of love into each of their creations!
If you see a card that you love, please bid with your heart! Thank you So Much for your participation! Click on this link to visit Turner Syndrome Awareness Card Auction!
