Slainte - Make a Wish Side Easel Card

Yogi here and I'm definitely into St Patrick's this year. Suzanne has been coming out with fabulous eCut designs for our Silhouette machines. Loving them, this time I used the word "Slainte"

 I scored and folded my white cardstock (see diagram) to make a 4.25"h x 6.75"w card

Folded the front flap in and layered another piece of white cardstock the same size as the base of the floor and adhered to the front flap (see diagram "glue front here").

I covered the front with a piece of white Ruche cardstock.

I created the shamrock eCut file (this one for a landscape mode - see below to get the free file) and cut from white cardstock, sponged with Distress "Mowed Lawn" and embossed with Zing "Green metallic Finish" embossing powder. Adhered it to the Ruche cardstock.

Adhered my plaid ribbon, laying down a piece of Sookwang tape and then just folding to create the ruched effect. I also added a tiny bit of tape to each fold so they held nicely in shape.

eCut the word "Slainte" from white cardstock, sponged with the green and clear embossed. eCut the shadow of the word and applied Black Soot and embossed with black embossing powder. Adhered both elements together and then onto the card front using 3D foam tape.

Die cut the ladybug (eCraft Designs) and sponged with red and black and clear embossed both elements, then adhered them together and on to the card.

Adhered a piece of green Ruche cardstock to the inside floor.

Stamped the sentiment for the inside (Faerie Song) on white cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Die cut with Spellbinders "Fancy Tags 2" and sponged with Memento "Tangelo" and a touch of "Pear Tart". Adhered to card with 3D foam tape.

As a final touch added some white pearl flourishes.

The shamrock lattice background is available as a jpg image, SCUT file (for SCAL - Silhouette), Studio file (for Silhouette), both portrait & landscape mode. If you don't have a Silhouette machine or either of these software programs, you will need to have the capabilities of changing it to an svg file & or uploading it to your cutting software.

  1. Love the different elements you used on this card. I didn't see the connection of the ladybug at first, but after thinking of it as lucky as is the four leaf clover, it finally hit me. Your work is always so inspiring!
