Another cute St Patrick’s Day card!
Look how cute this St Patrick’s Day card turned out! I only have two greetings that are OK for St Patrick’s Day but not a single shamrock, clover or leprechaun stamp. I’ve made shamrocks before using hearts like in this post: http://www.keenankreations.com/2010/02/st-pattys-day-card-with-lot-of-luck.html but I wanted something new. So I kept looking at what I had and I finally thought about using the Pansy Punch and removing a petal to create a four leaf clover – genius, right?! 😉
I really like how this card turned out. I love cards that are simple, not too busy, but still pretty and with attention to details. The base of this cute St Patrick’s Day card is Pear Pizzazz (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″) with a strip of the Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper (5 1/2″ x 2″) glued to the left side. I knew I wanted a little bit of gold so I added a tiny strip of the Champagne Glimmer Paper (5 1/2″ x 1/8″) with the Tombow Multipurpose adhesive to the left side of the patterned paper. The greeting is from the Occasions Alphabet set and is stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink on scrap Whisper White cardstock and punched out with the Lg Oval Punch. I layered the greeting to some more of the Champagne Glimmer paper punched with the Scallop Oval punch and popped it up with Dimensionals.
The four leaf clovers are punched with the Pansy Punch and Pear Pizzazz cardstock. Just use your scissors to cut away one of the petals and slightly curl the ends. I added 1/2 Dimensionals under each petal to keep it popped up but the clovers are adhered to the card with Glue Dots in the centers. The stem is punched with the Bird Punch. They looked a little “naked” so I added a large Pearl to the centers of each clover.
