I Love Shenanigans

I have another fun shaker card today using the same 'Irish Blessings' set I showed
on Sunday but just with a different stamp from the set.

I started with a square card stock, and a square 'window cut from the center.

I added 1/4" Tear-ific Tape around the square, then a piece of clear acetate.

Foam tape was then added around that.

Shamrock 'confetti' was then added, then covered with a background  piece I made by using a dot stencil
and Dreamweavers embossing paste, then Aztec Gold Glitter on the dots...kind of looks like gold coins.

It was then flipped over adhered to a card stock base.
To make it even more sparkle-y gold I added 1/8" Tearific Tape around the square shaker part
and 1/4" Tear-ific Tape around the outer edge, then coated with Gold Aztec glitter once again.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, 
colored it with Copics, added a bit of Aztec Gold glitter to the buckle,
then fussy cut it out.  Lady Luck glitter was added to the shamrocks using a bit of
Sakura Quicky Glue.

The sentiment was stamped with Versamark, then embossed wth
Irish Spring embossing powder.

The entire piece was then adhered to a gold metallic paper using
1/2" Tear-ific Tape.
A bow made with RRR was added to finish..whew...that was along write

Ha! "I love shenanigans". How funny! Cute, cute, cute! Those dots do look like gold coins. What a neat idea that was! These St. Patty's shakers you've made are just too much fun. You have to give them out with some of that gold coin candy. What a hoot!

Whoa! HOW GORGEOUS, Diane! Your gold coin background is so happy and offers the perfect backdrop for the lucky shamrocks in your amazing shaker card! It's been forever since I made one of those! I love what you have done with all the St. Patrick's day colors and symbols, incredible card! I recognized the bow immediately, and covet your bow making expertise!
