Happy Wednesday! Our challenge this week at Cooking With Cricut was to use two shades of green on our project. I can happily say I achieved that and then some! I know . . . makes you green with envy doesn't it! LOL!
I created a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" easel card. The card base is an UGLY green parchment-looking card stock someone gave me tons of years ago. I usually give it to my six year old to create with. Not my favorite paper -- but it worked for this particular project!
The mosaic squares are cut at 7/8" using the Plantin SchoolBook cartridge. All of the squares are scraps from a K & Co. paper pack I purchased a few years ago. The cross is cut at 4 1/2" tall and is from the Wedding cartridge. The shamrocks on the inside of the easel are cut at approximately 1 1/4" and are from the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. They are cut out of some Bazzill Lily Pond scraps I had -- I cut several and glued them together then pop-dotted them to help create the easel effect.
The Irish Prayer inside is one I found online and really liked. It reads: May God give you . . . For every storm, a rainbow; for every tear, a smile; For every care, a promise; and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share; For every sigh, a sweet song; and an answer for each prayer.
