A SHAMROCK--an oldie that still going good




i wanted to share this hanging i made last year for my front door.
my house faces west and i get the afternoon sun and this shamrock survived last year and is up this year again.  i do not remember what adhesive i used but it does holds its worthiness in gold. the rhinestones are fom dollar packs and all but one was good as new too.
yay!!!
below is the post from last year in case you want to make one.

---------

What do you think?
I absolutely love it.
 
 
 
  
I used the shamrock from the Paper Dolls Cricut Cartridge and cut the base on chipboard at 11.25"
Then I cut a MS cardstock the same size to have a sturdier base.
The second layer was cut at 10.25"
and the third was cut at 9.25"
The patterned papers are from MME the Bohemia Collection.
The font is from Ashlyn's Alphabet Cricut Cartridge at 2.5" with a shadow. The upper layer was embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and everything was inked and 2 shamrocks were popped-up.
The ribbon is a wired ribbon I purchased at Walmart.
I hung it on my front door.
Enjoy! Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
