Hi, friends! I'm here to share my first St. Patrick's Day card of 2012! :) I started off by using this month's SFYTT:
The green polka dot and plaid patterned papers are both DCWV, but the orange one I hand stamped. I used a Glitz houndstooth stamp, some orange ink, and a scrap of peach cardstock to make my own patterned paper. I added three glittery foam shamrock stickers from Darice. The circular element is another stamped creation. I die-cut a circle from white cardstock, then stamped the Stampendous image on top with dark green ink. The white was a little too stark, so I swirled on some lime green chalk ink and it went SO much better with the rest of the card. The chipboard sentiment is from Hobby Lobby; I embellished it with a green gem.
I know this card doesn't look that complicated, but I put a lot of work into the background pieces because I don't have a ton of SPD supplies. I'm pleased with the result.. I really ought to stamp more! :) I hope you like my card, thanks for stopping by!
