Lucky Shamrock Easel Card

I love being able to play with beautiful products, and the new Shamrock Collection by Authentique is just gorgeous. I knew once I saw it, that I had to create a shaped card using this amazing easel card from the Silhouette Online Store.
I chose papers that I knew would contrast well against each other, and purposefully chose to create with Shamrock Four and Shamrock One with this in mind.
By placing a lighter, more open and larger pattern against one that is darker, makes the lighter paper pop. I added a lot of dimensional adhesive to create more depth between each layer of paper.
The "lucky" script was cut from the same file, but I used a B side from a much older collection. Personally, I tend to not use a ton of cardstock and use mostly patterned paper, so checking out the backs of most papers is my go-to for finding good solids.
The largest clover, which creates the card itself, is created from the Spectrum Series in Kelly Green.
The banner was created using my Silhouette pens, then colored in with two colors of markers, black and red.
Once everything was cut out, dimensional adhesive was added for depth. The banner on the inside is also created using dimensional adhesive, but only one layer, so the card can fold flat.
I cannot wait to share this with someone for St. Patrick's Day. I love easel cards as they are both decorative and a great card.
Authentique Products Used: Shamrock Collection (One, Four), Spectrum Series (Kelly Green), back of older collection
