Challenge #4 for Celebrate the Occasion is St. Patrick's Day and the Design Team has some inspirational projects for you! I created a 2 page layout for the occasion.
I used my sewing machine to stitch the shamrock paper as well as the photo mats. I embossed with Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder on the photo mats and added a strip of green glitter ribbon to tuck my pics under.
I welded a bunch of clovers from Paper Dolls Dress Up together with my Gypsy to get a clover field for this cute little Leprechaun(Simply Charmed) to dance in. I sponged all the clovers and added some on top of the welded image with different brand dimensionals to get several different layers of clovers.
Now for the bright rainbow, this element did take some thought. There is not a rainbow on any of the Cricut cartridges that stretches well across a 2 page LO so I needed to make my own rainbow. At first, I was going to use buttons, but I did not have enough colors on hand. I needed to find something (beside paper) that I have a lot of and in several colors. What did I find....RIBBON!!!! I ran my tape runner across the entire length of the ribbon then carefully layed it out. I really like the way it turned out!
The pot of gold is from one of my new favorite carts, Simply Charmed! I wanted to give it a full look so I layered it.
and for the Gold inside the pot, I cut the background out with gold paper, sponged it then adhered the top layer and stickled the edges!
