Today I am sharing with you another shaker card (in the nearest future you can bet on a pink card or a shaker card... Picasso had his colour/style periods and so do I! ;o) Not that I am comparing myself to Picasso but you know what I mean!). A good colleague of mine is leaving work in the coming days, and I thought that a good luck card would be nice for a send-off.
When I saw this photo inspiration challenge over at Sparkle and Shine, I knew straight away that it would be perfect for the card I had in mind.
I cut the shamrock shape by hand, using my craft knife (I got that from Tchibo online - see essentials tab for more info on that). I used a shamrock shape that I found online & printed as a guide. I think it turned out pretty clean and neat. The flat and cupped sequin mix is from Art and Hobby (both types come from a colourful mix, it took a bit of patience and time to pick only the gold and green ones!). I then added some brush splashes of Egyptian Gold Twinkling H2O on top of my green cardstock, matted it using some gold mirror paper, and added the sentiment using Papermania stickers. The lovely background paper is from the Let's Polka collection by Lawn Fawn. And voila!
I hope you like it! My colleague certainly did! :o)
