Where I live, St. Patrick's Day is celebrated with parades and parties, green beer and clogging in the Irish pubs and lots of merriment. I don't usually send cards for the occasion, but this year, I thought I'd make one for my sister. Here it is:
The sentiment banner on the front was cut with one of the dies from the Ribbon Banners-Straight die set by My Craft Spot. I added a wee bit of Washi tape and a green gem to the circular end of it.
I happened to have some green Washi tape that coordinated nicely with my patterned paper, so I added a little strip of it to create a base for my Shamrock.
The Shamrock (having only three leaves) is a national symbol of Ireland and is from the clover family of plants. The four-leafed clover is actually a rarity, but is considered to be "lucky" when found.
I ran my plain green mat through my Cuttlebug in my Swiss Dots embossing folder. My white scalloped mat was cut with a Lifestyle Crafts die.
The inside of my card was created with the same DSP and cardstock as the front. I added another little shamrock made with a small heart punch and a small flat-backed gem.
My sentiment is my own and was computer-generated.
I'm entering this card into the Dies R Us Challenge Blog's Challenge #22 - Shades of Green.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing my one and only St. Patrick's Day card. And I hope your St. Patrick's Day is full of merriment and good luck!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
