Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I am always looking for a new fold or interactive card that I haven't tried before,
and I stumbled across this "viewmaster card."
I did get the easy tutorial from Splitcoaststampers and
had a great time making this project.

Using glitter papers, embossing the images, and adding a
fancy punched edge makes this card sparkle.
Since I didn't have any stamps for this occasion,
I used a selection of "hats" for the viewmaster wheel.

The same concept is used on this card, but I added more  bling to the
shamrock by using a silver metallic paper.
I also changed things up by using Cricut cuts on the wheel instead of stamps.
The images include the heart (shown), a leprechan hat, and a shamrock.

These cards are so cute and provide a surprise for the recipient.
The pictures really don't do them justice because the glittery effect is lost.
Give this a'll have fun making it!
