Eureka Stamps - Shamrock (Double Line).
I created my cardbase by folding a 21x15cm die cut journal mat in half. I couldn't believe my luck at the discount shop when I found a packet of 40 of these, for $2! Doublesided, too! To show the inner colour, I have only popped out the diecuts of the front side... the pattern continues all the way around the card. I printed out the Peace Prayer of St Francis of Assisi in brown, and tore it's edges. I chalked it, then ran an alcohol marker along the edge.. the marker bled into the card, and has given a nice burned effect!
The sponsor's delightful shamrock image has been printed in green, and trimmed, then chalked with multiple greens. I created a wee little bow from a scrap of ribbon... yes a scrap. I disassembled a lingerie bow to see how they were made, and copied it. I will be creating little bows like this forever! So easy! I'll never tie another little bow again! I coloured the ribbon with my alcohol marker (the ribbon was actually pale pink! How's that for recycling... it actually turned GREEN)! After stitching it onto the shamrock, I added a rhinestone, and also to the four corners of the prayer layer.
