For this ATC I started with a green card stock background. I embossed the edge with Emerald embossing powder. I cut clover patterned scrapbook paper to size and then embossed the outside edge with iridescent embossing powder. I cut a strip of the same paper and accordion folded it making the rosette flower. I then went back and cut a clover from the scrapbook paper and used a punch that punches and sets the epoxy center as it punches out the shape. I trimmed two pieces of ribbon that says "Irish Blessings" and glued them in place. I then glued my rosette flower on the card.
This card started with a clover patterned scrapbook paper. I used glitter glue to trace over the white clovers. Then using Puffy paint I wrote the word "Luck" on freezer paper. I sat these aside to dry. I made the large clear clover by cutting it from clear plastic, the kind that is used to cover most things that we buy (toys, electronics, and other items). I used alcohol ink to color it green. I then used my heat gun to curl the petals giving it shape. I glued a rhinestone in the center. After the glitter glue background was dry I lifted the word Luck from the freezer paper and laid it in place. I found that it was lost on the background paper so I glued it on transparent vellum. Before putting it on the card I punched a small hole in the upper edge and tied a small gold charm to it with green embroidery thread. I then glued it in place. When I went to attach the large green clear clover I found that it disappeared on the background paper so I cut a vellum clover and placed it beneath it also. For the finishing touch I glued a green glittered clover charm next to it.
I started this card by mounting green plaid scrapbook paper to white card stock. I then distressed the edges with a gold ink pad. I ran green ribbon through my sticker maker and applied it to the one edge of the card. I then re-sized and printed my favorite picture of St. Patrick chasing the snakes out of Ireland. Wish I could live where there are no snakes. I'm terrified of them. I then mounted it on chipboard. I used the same gold ink pad on the outside edge. I glued it in place and then for the finishing touch I glued on the gold cross charm.
