St. Patrick's Day

Spring sure has a lot of fun holidays, doesn't it? Needing a St. Patrick's Day card and wanting to join Color Hues Color Challenge's current Green and Gold theme, I played around with some green and gold papers and this is what I ended up with! I am sharing this with The Four Seasons Challenge here and Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies here.

Products I used:

Stampin' Up!: Scallops embossing folder

Sugar Pea Designs: Card Front Element Builder dies

Lucky die (not sure of origin)

Circle punch

Patterned paper

Super easy...even though I don't own the geometric dies that cut these shapes! I die cut three sentiments and glued them together to make the word sturdier and stand out. I punched two of each green circle too, in order to have them stand out as well. I cut out two plaid circles and cut one in half and the other into quarters, then adhered them to the green circles to make the pattern I wanted. I used my scalloped embossing folder for the background to have similar rounded shapes on it.

Check out Color Hues for the #cardsforukraine in the same challenge as this one and use that hashtag so the Ukrainian colors can be seen across the internet showing our support to them.

Saw this and loved it on IG, but it's even better here on the blog! I love the white on white scallops in the background, and the bold green circles make the gold sentiment pop! Thanks for joining us at Color Hues!
