Luck of the Irish card

I couldn’t sleep on Wednesday night so I stayed up and made this card for my sister.  My sister married into a family with a strong Irish heritage and they really do St. Patrick’s Day right!

The idea I wanted to do for the card, the stamps I found and this weeks 2S4Y challenge all melded together perfectly.  How often does that happen?!

I found the digital stamps at The Cutting Cafe.  I “made” paper using the shamrock stamp which I then colored green.  I cut the Happy St. Patrick’s Day stamp into a ring, and the Lucky Enough sentiment is from the same set. 

For the card I cut a 6″x 4.5″ rectangle out of the colored shamrock paper then layered it on top of a green 6.25″x 4.75″ rectangle.  After,  placed a white ribbon around the paper and tied it into a bow. I used a 6.5″x 5″ white base card.  Then attached the layered paper.

The green scalloped circle was cut from the Celebrations Cartridge at 4″ then run through my Cuttlebug using the dots embossing folder.  I cut  a 3.5″ circle out of the shamrock paper using my Plantin Schoolbook Cart and centered on the scalloped circle.  Finally, I placed the sentiment ring on top.  I used Glossy Accents on one of the shamrocks in the circle for some added dimension. 

I secured it to the layered card with pop dots.

I used Design Studio to weld together 3 1.5″ shamrocks from the Designer Calendar cart.  I used Martha Stewart glue and green glitter to spice it up a bit, then attached it behind the bow.

For the inside I cut a 6.5″x 1.5″ rectangle in green, then placed the sentiment over it.  I used Glossy Accents on another small colored clover and cut it out to place above the sentiment.

I hope you like it!
