Make Your Own Luck
Spring is right around the corner and St. Patrick's Day is just three days away. I typically don't sent St. Patty's Day cards but like the colors and the whole shamrock image, so I thought it would be fun to create a card that had all of the elements without actually referencing the holiday. This card will be entered in the Inspired By and CASology challenges. To create my card I started by die cutting the tshirt using some Paper Studio green patterned paper and the MFT Girly Graphic T-Shirt die. I stamped the shamrock and sentiment from the coordinating stamp set. I then layered some basic black cardstock from Stampin' UP onto my white A2 card base and then layered some more of the Paper Studio patterned paper and some specialty paper that I had in my stash onto the card using layers to delinate between the patterns. I die cut an oval from white cardstock from Staples and a pierced edge oval die from MFT. I stamped the shamrock again using Tim Holtz distress ink in peeled paint all over the background of that panel and adhered that to a slightly larger oval that I die cut using more black cardstock and a Spellbinders oval die. I added a few pastel green 6mm sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to add a bit more bling and that finished my card. Thank you for stopping off at my blog today!
