St. Patricks day card



I have my splurge tomorrow night, and have not been able to come up with my second project. DH suggested something St. Patricks day, so this is what I came up with, pretty simple and basic but sometimes those are the best cards. I made about 7 of these with different variations. I sure hope people don't get sick of me sending them cards.

All supplies SU.

The card base is basic black, the mat gable green. I took the clover from the stamp set Year Round Fun II and stamped it on whisper white (1.5 x 5.25) then matted on black mat (1.75 x 5.25). I used the stamp set Pinch Proof for the big clover in the scallop. I used heat and stick powder and then green glitter from the Fine Cosmo? glitter stack. I punched it out with the 1 3/8 circle punch. Punched out a basic black scallop, and used the white gel pen.

Simple layouts always look great because you can focus in on the main image. The glitter is a nice touch.

We don't have those stamp sets in the UK which is a real shame - I know a friend was really struggling to make a set of St Patrick's Day cards for family. I do like the black and green combo though and will steal that to use. TFS. Sara xx

Great card! I really like simple cards sometimes all the extra stuff is just that extra stuff. Love it!
