Hi friends, I hope you’re doing well! We’re having some weird weather – Wednesday Denver reached 70° and Thursday we woke up to snow :) We’ll only be in the 40°’s through the weekend.
I made these 2 cards for my parents and in-laws. I realized I don’t have many stamps for St. Patrick’s Day, but I was happy to find this clover image. For both cards, I used a piece of green cardstock with a fun herringbone embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a white card base.
For one of the cards, I simply stamped the clover image with green ink onto a piece of white cardstock, cut down the cardstock to be smaller than my card base and adhered it to the front of the card.
For my other card, I stamped the clover image with green ink on white cardstock, then used a large tag die to cut out the image. I tied a white ribbon at the top and adhered it to the front of the card.
I wanted to make something different for my sister, so I decided to make a fun shaped card. I used my Silhouette to cut 2 four leaf clovers about the size of an A2 card from light green cardstock. I took one of the clovers and embossed dashed lines for a bit of texture. I scored the top of the other clover and adhered the clovers together so the card would open nicely. I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock, used a die to cut it out and adhered it to the front of my card.
Tomorrow we’re getting together with family to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. I’m looking forward to spending time with them and enjoying some yummy Irish food :)
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
