Shamrocks and Sparkle

Hi there…it’s Michelle here from made.by.michi and I’m super excited as this is my first post as a new member of the Maker Forte design team! With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, I thought what better way to kick it off than with a card filled with lots of shamrocks, shimmer and sparkle! This card is very simple and quick to make and perfect for more than just St. Patrick’s day.

I knew right away what I wanted to do when I saw the Shamrock stencil, Kaleidoscope Powder – Interference – Alien and the Sugar Sparkle Glitter – Jelly Shoes Holographic. If you haven’t yet checked out the Kaleidoscope Powder, you most definitely need to…this stuff is gorgeous and the shimmer that you get from it is incredible! So in addition to the above, I grabbed a piece of the British Racing Green Solid Core Cardstock, the Color Hive – Clear – Embossing Glue Ink Pad and some of the Ultra White – Heavy Weight 110lb cover cardstock and a card base and set on my way to make my card. All links to the supplies used are below.

I love all of the shimmer that you get from the Kaleidoscope powder and the tone-on-tone with the green cardstock. And let’s just take a moment as well to appreciate the gorgeous sparkle from the holographic glitter! And the jelly Shoes glitter is a perfect match with the British Racing Green cardstock…don’t you love it when that happens! I made a video to show the process…this is also my first video too, so please go easy on me lol. This is a day of firsts for me!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day 🙂
