Green is Lucky!

Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT522) is to include something “Lucky” for yourself on your project. For me, green is it! And little green gems & a shamrock are icing on the lucky cake!

On my lucky St. Pat’s Day card, I stamped the frame, colored it w/ Copics, die cut it using the ODBD Vintage Label dies, then used a Copic to edge it w/ yellow.  The greeting was done the same way on a smaller label die & popped up a bit on top of the frame. After die cutting al the layers w/ the matting basics dies, I used a bracket border to cut the lower edges. Somehow I cut my card to the wrong size so I had quite a bit of white space at the bottom. To compensate, I used one of the inset dies from the brackets and added a green strip behind it. I guess that was lucky, too. Love it when it looks like it was in the original plan all along!

The finished card is somewhere in the neighborhood of 5.50 x 4.0 & these are the Copics I used.
