Hi Downland Crafters,
Michelle (aka Michelf) here. It’s been a while since I did a blog post so I thought I’d share how I made the few cards I made. I made a trio as I just couldn’t stop once I started.
Starting with the new stamp set ‘Coola Boola’ I used my finger daubers to add 3 shades of green to the large shamrock in the stamp set. Tip: Start with the darkest at the stem and base of the image and add the next lighter shade, overlap a little to blend so the transition isn’t harsh. I stamped again with Versamark and heat embossed using clear embossing powder for a small bit of interest and dimension.
Next I added a sentiment from the ‘As Geilge Greetings’ stamp set and also clear heat embossed it.
I trimmed my white 5.5″ x 4.25″ panel down by .25″ on the side and bottoms and matted it on some gold cardstock from my stash.
These would make quick and easy sets for a gift for friends or teachers.
Does anyone else hear the words “look up, it’s Aer Lingus”?
I hope you live it as much as I do!

I would love to see what you do with this set. Be sure to post any cards you make on the Downland Crafters Facebook page.
