Irish Blessing



~~~ SECOND POST TODAY ~~~
For Reverse Confetti's COUNTDOWN TO CONFETTI, 
please scroll down or click HERE.


There is still time to join us for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Lucky!  
You have until March 10th at 8:00 AM CST to be inspired and share your project. 




Current Challenge details and link-up are HERE.
The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!


For my card, I combined a bunch of old and new products, as well as lots of different manufacturers. I started with some embossing paste and a Penny Black chevron stencil to make the background. I then create a shaker window panel using some Simon Says Stamp rectangle and circle stitched dies. The Irish blessing sentiment is from a retired Verve Stamps set called Blessings. It is stamped on acetate in Versafine Onyx Black ink, then clear embossed. Between the stamping on acetate and the clear embossing, the black ink took on a more muted, gray tone, which I ended up loving!



I filled the shaker with green, white, and gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, then embellished with some floral stems from my stash tied off with black and white baker's twine.


A few of the Curtain Call Crew gals have posted more inspiration for you! You can see all the new projects on the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge blog.

Oh Amy, gosh, so gorgeous. This is how it's done, I didn't have a St Patty's day stamp set and was think there must be stuff in my stash to make a "green" card. This is beautiful
