Another good find on Pinterest! I used a phrase from the Teeny Tiny stamp set. One student switched hers to a birthday card as her grand daughter has a birthday this month. So you can make it to whatever suits you.
Cut a panel 5” x 3-3/4” from Black. Adhere a panel 3-5/8” x 4-7/8” of Certainly Celery DSP. Cut a panel 3” x 4-1/4” from white cardstock. Sponge edges in Certainly Celery. Run through the embossing folder – put sponged edges towards the Sizzix logo. Made a template to transfer hole markings and punched with the 1/8” circle punch.
Adhere to black panel and punch holes again – I used my Silent Setter as I couldn’t reach them all with the hand held punch.
Cut hemp 18” long – I like the thickness of the hemp compared to the linen thread for the stems. Starting at the back, make one stem at a time. Tape to the back.
Repeat for all stems.
Mount phrase in place. Wrap 22” of linen thread around the panel a couple of times and tie.
Apply full mounts across the top and bottom of the panel – I used pieces of matt board. Apply full mounts down each side leaving the linen thread free to allow for a little wiggle room should you need it. Add a couple of mounts in the center of the panel.
Now we will use the heart punch to make the shamrocks. Punch 16 hearts. Curl the top edges and set aside.
Adhere the panel to the front of the card. Add a puddle of glue to the top of the stem and to each side. Add the hearts with the points touching the punched hole.
Press in place with the aid of the point of your scissors.
Make a four leaf clover from one shamrock. Add a rhinestone to the center of it and two small rhinestones to the phrase. Punch four ¼” circles from Certainly Celery. Adhere to each shamrock. Top with glitter glue. Tie your linen thread into a bow and trim tails if necessary.
We made an envelope from some packing paper.
