Saints be praised, greetings and welcome! Today is March 1st and we start a new monthly challenge over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog - here's what I've made to hopefully inspire you to join us!
Since I already have a good selection of decorated tags, I decided to make a deco with 4" round coasters, and of course decorate both sides of it as it will hang with the tags on my Tim Clip Carousel. I wanted to focus on Patrick and on the shamrocks that he used in his teachings for this deco. Luckily, I found what I needed in my computer files from Free Vintage Digi Stamps.
For the front side, I used the bigger coaster base and layered on the pendant die cut, a cross and an image of St. Patrick. I used gold Stickles inside and around the cross, around the image and dotted inside the pendant. I wanted some kind of trim sandwiched between the coasters, so I used a few of those big paper muffin wrappers colored green inks and then flatten out and glued to the back of the larger coaster. I then Stickled in gold all around the outside of the coaster on the wrapper.
For the back coaster, I layered the other cross and an image and sentiment and then the clover circles, and then adhered the coaster to the back muffin wrappers. No hang hole needed as the carousel clips hold it fine.
Have an awesome Sunday and week ahead! XOX
