more irish luck
I’m on a roll with St. Patrick’s Day cards. Who knew that this would be SO much fun?
I found my new favorite thing to use the other night: digital stamps that are already colored and ready to go. I’m not very good at coloring within the lines – never have been – so this is a wonderful solution for me.
Here is my latest card for the upcoming holiday.
I’m really making good use of the Nestabilities I bought a few weeks ago. After printing the graphic on matte photo paper, I used one of the rectangles to frame and emboss the edges. Once again, I used my Crop-a-Dile to put eyelets in the left side of the card. This time I used four eyelets and did a fancy ribbon tie through all of them. I hand scored the card panels with my Scor Buddy, and used foam squares to lift the double matted graphic off the large green mat and create some depth in my design. I used Scor-tape (lots of it) to adhere the various layers.
For a change, I did not use any recycled elements in this card. Oh wait – can I count the yellow paint chip that I got for my kitchen and then used for the small mat on this card?
The cardstock is from Wausau (Metallics Cardstock) and DCWV (Shimmer Stack.) My card base, as usual, is Staples 110lb (white) cardstock.
I’m beginning to use more ribbon in my designs. How convenient that Micheal’s had a super sale on it this week.
The only thing is….now I want a real shamrock plant of my own.
