'I am super excited to be sharing my first post here with you today. I am still pinching myself that I can call myself a Spellblogger now! Holly, Kazan and Julie left some huge shoes to fill. Please go easy on me and my fellow new Spellbloggers as we start our new journey here!
Our first theme is Luck of the Irish. For that share I thought I combine two of my favorite things I like to do with Spellbinders dies: a shaped card and a die-cut frame.'

To create my card base I scored a 5 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock in half, then placed it over the second smallest of the Grand Scalloped Squares , making sure that the folded edge of the card base was not being cut with the die and sat inside the die.
To create my frame the largest of the Tear Drop Circles and the third largest of the Standard Circles LG were placed over a piece of white cardstock. I adhered the dies with removable tape to the cardstock to make sure the frame would come out perfect and then cut and embossed the frame.
The edges of the patterned paper I had cut earlier were sanded with a sanding block to reveal the embossed inner edge and to give me the look of an added layer.
A sentiment from Flourishes Irish Blessings was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink inside the circle and a swirl from Flourishes Wedding Bliss was added underneath. An image from Flourishes Irish Blessings was stamped in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers. Smooch Glitz Lime Twist and Goldrush was added over the image for extra sparkle. The image was adhered over the lower left side of the frame.
The frame and sanded circle were adhered on the back side with dimensional adhesive.
Ribbon was threaded through one of the tear drops in the frame.
My Mind's Eye Paper were stitched to the white square I had cut and embossed earlier. The frame was adhered over the layers and the ribbon was tied.
Gorgeous new Fancy That! Border Bling from Want2Scrap was adhered to the top left and bottom right corner of the layers. They were adhered to the card front which was then taped to the card base with Scor-Tape.
Here is a close up look of the clover bouquet to show you the wonderful sparkle you get with Smooch Glitz.
