Irish Teddy

And a Top o' the Mornin' to you!
I hope you're keeping warm this Friday. A lot of folks have had 'snow days' this week and if you're one of them, I hope you have lots of stamps to help you through.

My little Irish Teddy is all decked out in his shamrock vest and hat and he can't wait for St. Paddy's Day. Green (any shade) is my all time fave color so if I wasn't already of Irish descent, I would still love the wearin' o' the green! Teddy was stamped twice, colored w/ markers and cut out. I layered the extra head and right arm/leg on top of the base image for a little dimension. I stamped Everything Irish w/ rainbow ink and die cut w/ an oval die. I used a larger, oval shaped die for the green and since my greeting is unmounted, I was able to curve it slightly to fit the shape.

I stamped the woven plaid w/ the same ink for the background, then stamped the little shamrock on top. On the darker green, I inked the woven plaid w/ a dk green marker and used this for the little brad like circles and little shamrock punch outs. The finished card measures 5.5 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great Super Bowl weekend!
