I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!  St Patrick’s Day is a favorite at our house.  As with many of the holidays we love it is definitely about the food and friendship we get to share on this day.  While my corned beef is cooking away, I thought I would share my St Patrick’s Day Sampler as well as a one of a kind card I made for my friend, Libby.  She sends me a lovely card almost every month and while I don’t always get one back in the mail to her I do try to make her something special when I do.

I am including a brief supply and measurements list for the sampler.

  • Emboss 4 Parakeet Party Hearts with the Stripes & Splatters 3D Embossing Folder and attach to a 1 1/2 inch Circle. Then add a Garden Green shamrock to the back of the circle to create the stem.
  • Score 4 Dandy Design DSP hearts in half and attach to the top of the Parakeet Party shamrock.

The card uses Linen Specialty Paper that is embossed and then colored using a Blending Brush and Direct to Paper.  The shamrocks are punched out from the chipboard found in our Dimensional packages and then I color Shimmery Embossing Paste to create the fun texture.
