I am late getting my St. Patrick’s Day card out, but the day is not over yet! This has always been one of my favorite holidays. I am half Irish and love everything about it. So I had to share a card with the Lucky Clover set.
The Lucky Clover stamp set is one that is simply fun! I love the shamrocks / clovers, the sentiments, along with the little extras that are included. It is part of a Punch Bundle, but sadly the Clover Punch was seriously popular. And it was not able to be restocked in a timely manner to be back before today. However, these clovers are really quite easy to cut out. I did both he large and the small one with no trouble.
The front sentiment is from the set as is the inside sentiment. I really love the inside one, as it is a perfect friend statement. And I added the little clover to go along with it. Here is the inside view.
To get all of the green I wanted, I went a bit wacky with my choice of papers. Both of the DSP are from the Flowers & More Designer Series Paper from the Mini Catalog Host rewards. I love this paper and I know you can tell since I have used it quite a lot! But I found two different bright greens that I love, and then pulled the Shaded Spruce from the darker one. I believe Shaded Spruce is a perfect Irish Green. And I love the Parakeet Party also.
Dies and Embellishments
To add some extra to my bold DSP choices, I used the Scalloped Contours Dies to add the scallops to the striped piece. For the sentiment, I used the larger of the Double Oval Punch for some additional scallops. The Balmy Blue Ink may seem a bit out of place. It is pulled from the darker of the DSP and breaks up the greens a bit.
As a way to add some brightness, I added the Parakeet Party Metallic Ribbon to the card. And gave it a double bow. For some more Parakeet Party, I colored a few of the Pearls Basic Jewels with the Dark Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends and spread them around the card. Actually I added more than I normally do. But hey, this is a holiday!!
