An oldie but a goodie

One of the things I purchased at the craft show were gold stickers in different designs. I have been using these stickers ever since I have been crafting but stopped using them for a while as they are not exactly trendy. After I saw these revamped stickers it renewed my interest in them and  so I purchased quite a few sheets, they are inexpensive and so easy to work with.

I will be making these cards for my friends who are not into my cute style of cards. I think they can be used for a variety of occassions and for any age and I think I can even get away with giving them to my guy friends.

The lucky bamboo image is a rub on that is part of a cluster of bamboo. I have used the part of the rub on which looked best in the vase, I still have plenty left for this design of  cards. To make the vase stand out I have used self adhesive dimensional foam to adhere to card. The sentiment is also a rub on, we all know how much I love rub on's.

AI Factory-Luck of the Irish or green project
