Shamrockin’ Good Luck

Top ‘o the Friday to ya! Happy March 17th – Saint Patrick’s Day – Friday – whatever it is to you!

I did made little treats for my coworkers. I also decided to create a card to go with them. A dear coworker and friend is leaving and I wanted to wish her well.

Color Throwdown also had great colors that just fit my needs perfectly too! Here are there challenge colors –

Very festive I’d say.

And, from the looks of my card, their picture inspired me too!

Fun and festive!

I followed a tutorial here for the shamrock/clovers. It was pretty easy once I got started.

The card, of course was my own design! I used two greens that really clash, Cucumber Crush and Emerald Envy. I liked how the gold and black offset them in this card.

What do you think? Fun? Festive? I’d love to hear from you!

Blossom Clover

Well now, just look at this sweet little number sure to please for St. Patrick’s Day. It is already in the mail as we post this, but…….got a few things I wanted to post this week. And, I just had to share this in time for you to make one yourself.

I was just playing around – creating my round of cards for my March Card Buffet and I accidentally came up with these little clovers –

See, I was punching with the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch and one punched shape was short a scallop. I removed it trying to create something else when it hit me – these look like a clover. With the little stem and all. So, there you have it. And, they really do look like little clovers, don’t you think?

Supplies. Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set. Basic Black Ink. Whisper White Card Stock. Paper Source Spruce Card Stock. 6×6 Hostess In-Color 10-11 DSP Paper Pack. Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch. Scallop Trim Border Punch. Note Cards.

Now, when I made this card, my base was the Note Cards. I love this ‘size’, it makes for cute, quick cards – and a nice envelope ready to go. I also popped up the 3rd ‘clover’ with a Dimensional. Doesn’t photograph well, but, in person it is really that added touch!

Leave me a comment for Good Luck –

Happy Stampin’
