Hello everyone! Nicole here today for my first blog post. I’m excited to be here and share my green project for the month. I recently started working with the youth at church and more specifically the girls: ages 12-17. I love doing things for them to make them feel special and part of that is giving them a little something on their birthdays. The first birthday of the year is next week on St. Patrick’s Day, perfect for the beautiful green card stock I was assigned – Fairway from the Stardream Metallic Collection.
Now yes, her birthday is St. Patrick’s Day, but I chose not to use the usual elements of the day and focus all on her and her sixteenth birthday. The weight and shimmer of all the metallic card stock is gorgeous and made for a beautiful sparkly card.
I began with an A7 prefolded card base. I trimmed a piece of the Fairway Card Stock to fit the top of the card leaving a small border of kraft around the edges.
