Robyn's Fetish Challenge #151 use green

                                                           Inside of card.

  Hello, Today at Robyn's Fetish our challenge is to use green. Our sponsor this week is The Cutting Cafe. I am using "four leaf clover" cutting file. It has several different formats. I used the pdf file and fussy cute the image out.
  The winner gets 3 sets of files from The Cutting Cafe store. You can find it here

   I printed the different layers off in 3 shades of green plus the front in a St Patrick's print from Create With TLC. Then i cut out the layers and glued them together except the darkest green. Next place the opened card on wax paper and outline the inside of the card with glue and glitter. Scotch Quick Dry glue and Recollections Citron glitter was used. When this side is dry turn it over and do the front of the card. Let dry. Once dry add the darkest green layer to the back of the card. It is a shadow layer. Now fold the card carefully to make sure the glitter does not crack in the center.

  This file comes with 2 sentiments. I made the one for the inside of the card. Then cut out a slightly larger green circle to go behind it. This is glued down using a strong glue.
  The other sentiment I used a dark green circle behind it. Then punched 2 holes to make it into a button. Then using Glossy Accents I covered the button being careful not to cover the holes. When dry I threaded Twine through the holes and tied a bow. Then pop dotted the button to the front of the card.

Thanks for dropping by. Happy St. Patrick's Day! Edwina

Thank you for the great glitter tip! Using wax paper, then adding the dark, outline layer is a great idea and makes it look so neat... I love the plaid/checkered patterned paper, too! Great card, Edwina!!
