Hi everyone! Happy St. Patrick's Day! I will be drinking some green beer tonight- how about you?! Of course I had to make a card to commemorate this fun holiday and the new Color Throwdown Challenge #434 colors and inspiration photo are just right too!
The stamp set I'm using is pretty old but it's the only shamrock and St. Patricks Day set I have. Fortunately, it's very cute and the sentiments are great! I stayed true to the challenge colors, only adding in a white background so my gold polka dots would show better! I know the pictures don't do them justice but, after they were stenciled in gold ink I went over them with some sparkly gold Perfect Pearls and they do have a really nice sheen!
I cut the polka dot base into a fancier shape and mounted that onto some kelly green and black card stock. The center portion is raised a tiny bit and I embossed the sentiment in black onto vellum before wrapping it around. I also embossed the three sizes of shamrocks in gold and colored them in with green shades of Copic Markers! They are layered together in the corner along with some black and gold enamel dots which are also accenting the vellum portion. Be safe if you're out and about celebrating the holiday!
Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!
