I still had the new TCP Beary Good Year set on my desk and decided to make a quick little St. Patrick's Day card... since the set has all the little holiday add ons and sentiments that's just what I used. I stamped the four leaf clover on a 1.5" Inchie Board. I used Memento Tuxedo Black to stamp and then colored on my Inchie with Copics. The color went on nice and smooth on the Inchie board.
I decorated the background panel using my Scor-Pal.... scoring lines at every half inch to create the embossed lines. Then I used the Scor-Bug tool to create the dotted embossed lines at 1/4" after each straight line. I jeweled them up here and there with some small green crystals. You can see my Scalloped Square in the background (under my Inchie Board) and I added some Gold Sulky thread to it, winding in between each scallop to create the grid pattern. My sentiment is simply embossed in gold and I curved it, so that it would be raised in the middle and secured on the sides using some crystals.... Also on the raised portion I use Perga Kit 3-D Glue to help hold the 3-D look. Finished card is 4.5" Square.
