Good morning
Well look at me posting a St Patrick's Day card on St David's Day!! Happy St Davids Day to all my Welsh blogging friends!
This week over at the Cuttlebugspot Nilda asked us to feature the colour green in our projects to celebrate the Irish. My DT sisters have rocked this challenge with such wonderful creations so be sure to pop over and leave a comment, just for leaving a comment you could win a $20 gift certificate for Custom Crops this week!
I've never made a St Patty's Day card before so my card is a bit predictable lol! I made a Shamrockcard!
I used my Designer Calender Cricut cartridge and DS to make a shaped card by welding 2 shadow shamrocks together and cut another shadow to layer on the front. I cut two shamrocks on base using Pink Petticoat polka dot papers, one for the inside and one for the top of my card which I embossed with CB Spots and Dots folder. I tied 2 ribbons in a bow some black plaid and some green satin and added to the stalk. Then disaster struck my printer ran out of ink lol (made an emergency order last night!) so I couldn't do a computer generated sentiment! My wonderful cricut came to the rescue and I cut a Sentimement using Designer's Calender and even at 1" my Cricut did a great job!( Finally I doodled some rather wobbly faux stitching around the edge now I know why I don't do this often lol! need loads more practise!! and added a little heart gem on the i of the sentiment.
This card also fits well into the challenge over at Just Buggin this week which is to emboss your die cut!
Have a great week everyone
