To make my clean & simple St. Patrick’s Day card, I die cut all the pieces and parts out of a water color background I had in my stash. It was a largish leftover from something else, made w/ yellows & greens Brushos crystals. The colors were perfect for a St. Patrick’s Day card & the little bird was die cut out of an area where the greens faded into white. I liked the way it made him look more like a real bird w/ varied coloring. (The shamrock in his hat is part of the Little Critters die set.) The Lucky die was cut once out of the w/c bg & once out of a lime green I used underneath for a bit of a shadow. For the embossed edges, I used a scallop ribbons folder then cut away only one part to use as the edges on either side. The shamrock balloons were added w/ some Baker’s twine strings.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

A big Congrats to Joyce Ann, the newest Featured Stamper (FS523) on Splitcoast! She has such a big, beautiful gallery & a lot of scrapbook pages! I chose THIS to case. I kept the sort of vintage humor theme & the layout but changed most everything else. Different images, different colors & different papers. I’m also adding this to the Ways to Use It Challenge (WT622), Spunky Old Broads because this trio of beach babes certainly qualify!

I stamped, colored then overstamped the babes on an already die cut white panel. After adding narrow black & turquoise layers, I found some paper that had glasses on it so I used it down the left. The greeting was tucked underneath the image panel & some die cut glasses were colored and added in the corner. This greeting just makes me chuckle…I can just hear the other two women agreeing w/ her..”Mmmhmmm..you know it, sweetie!”

Here are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
