Quilled Shamrock Shaker Card

Hi all!  Back again with another of the February Custom Quilling DT projects.  This card is not only green in color it is "green" because I recycled the acrylic packaging to make my shaker container.  This one was perfect to hold the bejeweled quilled three leaf clover as shakers.  I adhered the four leaf clover to the center of the shaker container along with the shiny green metallic clover so there would be a focus in the space.  The other shaker elements are light green metallic micro beads that get caught in the quills and tumble all around with the three quilled shamrocks.

The bow has two three leaf clover's dangling to give even more movement on the card.  If the glittery designer paper wasn't enough bling, I added a green crystals to every shamrock and the scallops on the outside ring. Shiny and sparkly! You can click on the image to enlarge it.

The Four Leaf Clover Seeds treat box above is the third project for the CQ Newsletter.  I made the medallion with my Just Rite Round stamper and font set and layered it onto Nestie scallops and circles. The February projects were made with supplies that come in the February Custom Quilling Kit.  You will love the lovely "wink" and generous shades of green card stock and 1/8" quilling strips. Check it out on the CQ site  You can see the four leaf clover "seeds" through the shamrock cut outs on each side.  If you would like to have the pattern/instructions for this little box just hop on over to Custom Quilling and Denise will email you the FREE PATTERN!

I hope you enjoyed the green CQ projects this month and I'd love to see yours!  Leave a link to your green projects in the comments!  Sorry for any misspelling's, I updated the posting option in blogger and now there are some editing options missing, including, unfortunately, the spell checker!!!!!  Until the next post,


Comments are always appreciated and I'd love to see your projects!
