With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, I'm still playing with my shamrock stamps and I can't seem to get enough! Maybe it's the promise of Spring that gets me so excited about working with these stamps. I'm giddy that our weather seems to have made a turn for the weather and I can only hope that it keeps warming up from now on. Here's another card I made using one of my favorite stamps, DRS Designs new Four Leaf Clover Friends Greeting (284F). I love the assortment of greens on this card and I love when I can use stamped images as embellishments. Read on for my explanation...
I stamped the greeting on white cardstock and then used a banner die to cut it out. While it was in the die, I sponged green ink over the top of it to create the white border around it. Then it was matted with a dark green card stock banner. I colored the shamrocks from the Shamrock Swag (1080F) with Copic Markers and then fussy cut them out to embellish the top of the banner. For the backgrounds, I used stamps to create my own pattern papers. I started with the Lines O'Plenty Background (366H) on the white card stock and then distressed the edges was a little bit of green ink. It was then matted with light green card stock and next, the panel was adhered to the front of a dark green cardstock base. The next pattern paper I made was with the Shamrock Background (326H) which was stamped on a small panel of light green card stock. I added a white scalloped border to the bottom of it and then tied a green ribbon around the top before adhering it in place on the card front. I finished this card by adhering the banner in place on the right-hand side of the card front as shown.
Well, that's it for me today.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Enjoy your day!
