A St. Patrick's Day Card Tutorial

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Welcome to another tutorial at SRM Stickers. Gina Hanson put together a sparkly and fun St. Patrick's day card using SRM Stickers and walks us through the steps. Here we go!

Here's what you'll need;

Bazzill Cardstock
Reminisce Patterned Paper, Lucky Me and Glitter Factory
Shamrock Button and Ribbon
SRM Stickers - Express Yourself, "St. Patrick's Day"

I started with a 5 x 5" card then trimmed 1 1/2" off the end of the front of the card. I took one of my patterned papers and trimmed to 3 1/4" x 4 3/4" and adhered to the front of my card.

I cut two different sizes of circles, making the black cardstock circle a tad bit bigger than the circle cut from another piece of patterned paper. I stitched the ribbon onto the patterned paper circle as shown. Before adhering to my card front, I distressed around the black cardstock.

Using two different sizes of heart shaped Spellbinder Nestabilities, I cut three of each size from two different papers to create the shamrock. I used foam dots to pop up the little hearts.

Lastly, I added a Shamrock button and SRM Sticker sentiment to finish off my card.

Now for a special treat from Helen, her beautiful St. Patrick's Day collage card!
