St. Patricks Day Card

St. Patricks Day CardMaking a shamrock for this St. Patricks Day card was easy using the stamp set and framelits that I picked up in the Hearts a Flutter Bundle (w-131098/c-131097) from the Spring Catalog.  I used my Gumball Green Stampin' Write Marker from the 2012-2014 In Color Marker Collection to color the stem on the leaf stamp in Betsy's Blossoms (w-126004/c-126006).

The interesting background came about because after stamping in Gumball Green and then cutting out my “shamrock,” I realized I had no Gumball Green card stock!  So I took some Whisper White card stock, ran it through the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, and then brayered Gumball Green ink all over it.  I made my own designer paper.  Pretty cool!

I didn't have a suitable greeting on hand, so I printed it on my printer in Gumball Green on white card stock.  (The RGB code for Gumball Green is R=105, G=132, B=51.)  It's an Irish blessing, and reads:

“May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.”


I added a Dahlia to finish it off.
