St. Patrick's Day - pretty in green!

Is it really that time again - well, hurray, cuz I want Spring to come!

This is a really fun card to make... because it puts together several items - you have to work your magic on this one! Using a heart stamp and punch from SU! [that's Stampin' Up!] - you cut out 3 large stamped hearts and cut off the side of one for the stem. Then the real fun starts when you 'highlight' the heart image with some white gel pen!

Next, arrange the hearts and stem into a shamrock and secure a gem brad in the middle!

What's more we have some green, black, cardstock and some designer's paper, and a small strip of black gingham ribbon. Cute as the first shamrock, another smaller heart punch gives you a four-leaf clover [see inside card].
Another roller wheel and here I learned something new....using a wheel of all words - you can just choose one word {i.e. St Patricks Day} and cut it out. We glittered our word strip because soon as I saw the glitter - well, couldn't help myself - something had to have some bling -:)

I really like it! :)

All supplies SU! Stamping' Up!
