Now, about this card.............as you read this post and are placing your order, I am holding two card classes here in the studio. This is one of the cards we are making because I just couldn't let St. Patty's Day go by without some recognition! This card was cased heavily from a cutie I saw over on Caroline in Toronto's blog here. But, I just had to put my own "Robin Spin' on it so I turned the layout and changed it up! That's what stampers do - take a great idea and make it their own, you don't always have to re-invent the wheel! (Caro - you ROCK, GF! See you in Hawaii!)


The card base is Glorious Green, layered with Basic Black then a piece of the Sale-A-Bration Delicate Dots paper (FREE!). The Glorious Green strip is punched with the new Eyelet Border punch and then layered up with some Black Gingham ribbon.


I used the "Good Luck" greeting from the Sincere Salutations stamp set - an oldie, but a goodie! This was stamped on Whisper White with Glorious Green then edged with the matching Stampin' Write Marker. I added two Gold Brads and popped it up on two Stampin' Dimensionals.


The shamrock is made by stamping 3 of the heart images from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Polka Dot Punches with Whisper White Craft ink. I then embossed them with Whisper White embossing powder and my Heat Tool. They were punched out with the New Full Heart punch and popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals and adhered to the front of the card. A hand cut stem completes the shamrock and now you are done! I hope you like it and I hope you all have a fun, safe St. Patrick's Day celebration!


Happy Stamping!
