Nothing sets the stage for a holiday like a banner! Core’dinations has the PERFECT color for you for all your St Patrick’s Day needs…it’s Shamrock Green!

Mary Pat Siehl created this banner just for us today…ENJOY! 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I know I sound like a broken record but I LOVE my Core for home decor items.  I love to give my family room a little facelift with each holiday that comes around.  As soon as March 1st comes my family room has accents of green for St. Patrick’s day!  My mantel needed a little lift and I made a little fun banner! I used my Silhouette to cut out my banner but you could easily hand cut any shape or use a template.  I started with my Core Essentials and and made a base in yellow.  I then cut my top layer and embossed it using a Darice Shamrock embossing folder.  I lightly sanded it to expose the inner core and the shamrocks.  I layered it onto of my yellow with some foam tape.  ( I love to add dimension to my projects).  Next  I grabbed my Core Couture Glitter cardstock in Five Star and punched some circles.  Again foam taping them on to the base.  Next I cut out the work Lucky using the  Rodeo Drive from the Glitter collection and adhered it on to the circle.  So much fun for our family room.
