Happy St. Patrick's Day

>> Tuesday, March 1, 2011

Hi Everyone!

I have a very traditional card to show you today.  I really cheated when making this card the other day, because it's a layout that I have used a million times at Christmas, only then I used an evergreen wreath.  It's so classic though, that I figured it had to work for this great Shamrock Circle from the new releases at DRS Designs.

I stamped my card base using Lines O' Plenty ( Great name for a stamp being used on a St. Patty's Day card, don'tcha think? ;) ) a fantastic all around background stamp.
I stamped the wreath in Versamark and clear embossed it.  After it cooled, I went in with my Copics and colored the little shamrocks.  The Happy St. Patrick's Day can also be found in the new releases.  Here is a close up of the shiny embossing...

Lastly, I tied the wrinkle ribbon in a bow, and added it with a glue dot just as if it were a Christmas time wreath. 

Well folks, it's finally March! Yay!  Are you ready for the next round of holidays?  Be sure to stop by DRS Designs to check out all of the holiday stamps...Have a good one!

Love how you cut out the Shamrock circle around the shamrocks--I always just use my Nesties for 1 quick cut! Love the layout too!

I am completely impressed with how you cut the wreath out! Fussy cutting? It is a wonderfully traditional layout. Great job.
