My Second Attempt at a Card

St Patricks Day is coming, so I decided to try another attempt at making one of those fancy cards :-).  And I used Double Sided Sticky Tape to put everything together.

Here are some cute stamps I picked up to use.

But found they did not turn out very well :-(

So I decided to cut some clovers from cardstock instead.

I also cut out the card base.

Next came the plaid border.

And I decided to add some buttons I had to this card.  I tied 3 different colors of  embroidery thread I had into bows through the button's holes to add a little girly touch.

Then cut out some foam to mount the clovers on.

Taped them to the clovers.

And then onto the card.


So, a moderately successfull attempt.  I am still not very good at this, but I'm trying!
