St Paddy Shamrock dk 02651
Today we are introducing this wonderful Shamrock die! Don’t you love the Celtic knot work in the shamrock petals? I die cut the shamrock out of some recycled box panels. I loved the dk green color and it is really heavy weight, but the die handled it with no problem. I also die cut a couple more shamrocks out of plain card stock and stacked them together w/ the green one on top for some extra dimension. It’s attached to a die cut circle of textured aqua and I die cut larger circles on the top layers of mossy green and patterned dp. The dp was also die cut on the lower edge w/ a curved die and I attached a strip of white die cut w/ a coordinating curved border. The greeting was stamped on an angle in the lower right corner with green ink. I outlined the letters w/ a dark green Micron pen and added shading and sparkle with a Stardust pen. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

    Love this card. St. Patrick’s day is a hard one to do cards for because there aren’t many large St. Patty’s day dies. I am ordering this one now.

    Julie, this is truly exceptional. Having the shamrock die stacked with some heavy weight card stock is a great touch. I’m going to have to get the whole set for this year’s St. Patty’s Day cards.
