First I took a piece of wood and painted the edges XMas Green.
After the paint dried, I Mod Podged the top of the board with a thick layer.
I added a piece of cardstock on top and smoothed it down with a scraper. I then let it dry for about 30 mins.
While the first layer of Mod Podge was drying, I cut 4 shamrocks, on my Silhouette, and a piece of cardstock to go on top of the bottom layer, and distressed them with Distress Ink and a blender pad.
I painted the rose colored cardstock with a heavy layer of Mod Podge. I put the striped cardstock, centered on the board, and smoothed it down with a scraper. I let this dry for at least thirty minutes. You know it's dry because the Mod Podge becomes completely clear and loses all the white color.
I heavily Mod Podged over the project again. I carefully spaced the four Shamrocks and glued them down on top of the striped cardstock. I smoothed them down with the eraser of a pencil so they would stick well. I let them dry about 30 minutes.
I added another heavy layer of Mod Podge to the entire top surface of the project. I let it dry for an hour.
Using the belt sander, I sanded the edges of the board. I then used the Distressing ink to distress the edges to blend it together.
I measured out the letters. I glued them using wood glue.
Tada! I'm "Lucky" to have this great decoration.
