I always feel that St. Patrick's Day is somewhat a forgotten holiday. Stuck inbetween Valentine's Day and Easter it can get neglected! We love this holiday and go all out to celebrate it. Here is one of the cards I made to send to friends and family. I saw this done on several blogs and love how it looked.
Stamps - Teeny Tiny Wishes, Happy St. Patrick's - SU
Paper - Old Olive, Whisper White, DSP - SU
Ink - Old Olive - SU
Accessories - Full Heart, Large Oval and Scallop Punch - SU, Gem
The card is an A2 size - 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" in Old Olive. The layer is 4" x 5 1/4" in Whisper White. I punched out 3 hearts in Old Olive and 3 hearts in the DSP of your choice. I adhered the 3 hearts in Old Olive to my layer to form my shamrock. I then cut a small stem by hand and adhered it to the center of the shamrock leading down to where my sentiment will be. I scored the 3 DSP hearts in half and adhered them down over the other hearts just in the fold so they would give a 3D look which I think made this card. Then I stamped my sentiment and punched it out and placed it on the scalloped punch. I then popped it up on the bottom of my card hiding the end of the stem.
It was so windy here today! We have a busy weekend. The family is celebrating Sarah's birthday Sat. Hard to believe she will be 11 years old. Then on Sunday we are all going to a St. Patrick's Day Brunch with green eggs and ham! Gotta love it! Hope you all have a great weekend whatever your plans are and a wonderful St, Patrick's Day!
Thanks for stopping bye,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah
