Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hello there, Jenn here to share this adorable St. Patty's themed card using glitter chipboard and Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest!

Dew Drops accent any project amazingly! They are easy to use and come in many colors!

The glitter chipboard is easily cut with dies into any shape and is very sturdy!

Use a cut out image from the designer paper and fancy cut the corners.  Cut out a sentiment from the designer papers.Using TH Distress ink in Dusty Concord ink all of the edges except the die cut glitter chipboard.

Build The Card
Using a Xyron Mega Runner or another adhesive gun, start with the larger designer paper and adhere it to the card base.
Next, adhere the other designer paper piece on top of that. Add adhesive foam dots or squares to the plum glitter chipboard die-cut and adhere to the front.
Add the image using adhesive foam squares. Add the cut-out sentiment with adhesive foam dots.
Accent with a bow and flowers using hot glue.
Using a clear glue add Dew Drops here and there. I also added a small paper key from the designer paper and a purple jute small bow.
