A St Patrick's Day Greeting with Candy

Hi Authentique Fans! I am sending you a little Authentique luck with  A St Patrick's Greeting with a little sweet treat! The Authentique Shamrock Collections is just a sweet collection full of hues of green with splashes of pink and lots of vintage images! 

This fun filled trio-fold card measures 6 1/2" x 5" when it is finished. There is plenty of space to write a fun sentiment inside along with a pull our waterfall photo card that could be added to your planners, scrapbook page, or have as a keepsake.

Begin by folding a piece of 6 1/2" x 12" pattern paper at the 4 1/2", 4 3/4", 9 3/4", and 10" marks.

Adhere mats and border strips. HINT: Make sure to form pockets with the border strips at the bottom of the card  by only adhering the strips on 3 sides to create the pockets.

Add fussy cut vintage images, stickers and Epherema Cards to inside of card.

Add a few stickers to inside using pop dots and gemstones.

Add a separate  3 1/2" x 5 1/4" Waterfall card to place in the pocket.

Decorate each page with stickers, scallop border at the bottom and gemstones.

 Create a tag; add to front of card with pop dots... HINT: This a fun place to hide a gift card!

 Add a ribbon bow, a few fussy cut images and stickers to front of card with pop dots.

Create a few planner picks with stickers and paper clips... HINT: Planner picks on paper clips will help hold the card closed.
