Green and Gold HI

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I have a great card share today inspired by Freshly Made Sketches

Nice, simple, clean sketch.

I had been playing around with stamping balloons to give a dark to light color effect, a sort of ombre look. I inked up my stamp and stamped it three times – at the top, middle of the paper and towards the bottom. I loved the end result, but had the stamped panel just sitting on my desk.

Until I saw this sketch. I couldn’t just cut this up randomly and ruin all my hard work. This panel took a few tries.

This is what I did with it, minimal trimming of course –

I love it! And since it has gold accents, I created an envelope liner for the card too –

What I trimmed off the side I used for the interior of the card. Can’t waste anything! Speaking of which, the H I came from the Party Pop-Up Thinlits letters that get cut out.

All in all, this little card is a stunning beauty!

I can not wait to give this to someone. It’s sure to brighten anyones day!

It’d brighten my day if you left some thoughts on my green and Gold Hi!

Happy Stampin’
