Lucky Gold Coins

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! It's almost time for St. Patrick's Day! Since my favorite color is green (any shade), and my mom's side of the family is almost entirely Irish, seems like this holiday is perfect for me! For my easy card, I used gold & emerald embossing powders to heat emboss the Good Luck circle onto mirror gold card stock.
These were all die cut using 2 sizes of circle dies & a couple of them were layered onto a larger, fancy edge circle die cut. I also gold embossed some of the clover centers of the image onto green c/s & used a small 4 leaf clover punch to punch them out. The punch wasn't an exact match, but it was close enough. The white frame was die cut, the greeting added & I had a piece of dry embossed green c/s left over from something & since it had clovers & shamrocks on it, I put it behind the opening.

Here's a look at the inside.
Thanks so much for stopping by! May the luck of the Irish be with you!
Paper: white, green, mirror gold
Ink:  Memento tuxedo black, Encore ultimate metallic gold pigment
Accessories: detail gold & emerald embossing powders, Spellbinders circles dies, MFT diagonal stitched rectangles dies, Gina Marie UDIO circles dies, Cuttlebug embossing folder (Simply Charmed set), Family Treasures sm. 4 leaf clover punch
