The cards I’m going to be showing you the next couple weeks, I made two and three weeks ago…I’m not sure I’m going to be able to remember all the details. Warning… hehe
I’m sure this is a Distress Ink watercolor background. I was stuck on Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio for awhile so I hope this is right. I used a Memory Box stencil for the little dots coming out of the Pot of Gold.
To get the perfect A-2 size rectangle panel, I used the new Memory Box Rectangle Basics die set. I LOVE this set…so many rectangles. I use it on almost every card! Love it! Die cut and adhere it to the card-base.
I simply die cut the pot in silver metallic card-stock and the coins in gold metallic card-stock. Watercolor paper for the background. The die cut sentiment is from Memory Box and glued to a strip of black card-stock.
I hope I can make some more backgrounds like this! Now that I’m seeing it again, I like it!
I’ll link to the products I used below. Just thought of something…wouldn’t it be fun to add a ‘c’ to the luck and have “best of cluck” with some hens! YES it would! haha
