Wishing You a Pot of Gold

Hi friends! I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that February is almost over. This year seems to be flying by. Today I'm sharing a card I made with the Lucky Day DIGITAL Set. This set was available for a limited time last year and is back in the store now and on sale!


One thing I really enjoy about digis is the ability to foil the designs.  Here I printed the PDF version of the digi on watercolor paper, then foiled the sentiment in my mini MINC. Another little trick I love to do is use the leftover foil from the foiling to add little accents to my project. It's so easy. I just randomly use a glue stick on places I want gold foil, then apply the leftover foil pieces and rub gently to leave a shiny little bit of gilding behind. I did this for the frame around the card and on the top of the clover.  I tried super hard to capture the shine in a photo, and this was my best take.  I do love the glow, don't you?




The aqua wash and the clover are watercolored with Shimmerz products. I fussy cut the images and then added a little distressing to all the edges before layering it all together. Such a fun card to make!



 Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous day!
