Hello Everyone!! Happy Wednesday :) I decided to make a very basic and simple St. Patrick's Day invitation. I needed to mass produce this card so I wanted something that would not take a very long time to put together. I love to use the "Assembly Line" method!!
The materials that I used are:
Designer's Calendar cartridge, two-way glue pen, clear block, black ink pad (CTMH), Happy Day stamp set (CTMH), black and green cardstock.
Select the "Boxed" feature so it can add a frame around the shamrock shape.
Upload your Cricut mat and cut the shamrock at 4 inches.
Looks good so far!
Use the two-way glue pen to adhere the shamrock frame to the card. (I normally would use mono adhesive or Zip Dry but I needed something to go around the small edges and the two-way glue pen is perfect for those hard to reach spots! **NOTE-be very careful to not get any glue on black cardstock-it shows up quite a bit even when it drys :)
Select a stamp of your choice to represent your sentiment. I chose a stamp from the CTMH Happy Days stamp set and used a CTMH black ink pad.
....and there you have it! A very basic and simple party invitation ready to go in minutes!!After I created this invitation I really wanted to give it some "BLING"-I love BLING!! So I decided to use a Versa Mark ink pad and use a shinny, bright green embossing powder to add that special touch. It didn't take me too long to add the additional embellishment. I hope you like it and I hope you are creating with your heart!!!
