I decided to post a last minute project for the FCCB Challenge Me Monday post and I am also entering it into the challenge for Card Cupids. I'm not sure if it will be posted up there (at FCCB) or not (it was) because I submitted past the deadline, but it wasn't a mandatory post for me so it's totally ok! I just decided today that I really wanted to make a St. Patty's day card. :0) BTW, if you do head over there, please check out the Sunday Spotlight as I was one of the gals featured!!! It's so awesome to be a part of an amazing Design Team (DT)!!! I'm one lucky lady!
Well here is my
St. Patty's Day Card
I had a lot of fun figuring out what to do with this card. It went in a totally different direction than I had originally intended, but I like the way it turned out. I used the Designer's Calendar cartridge for the shamrock in the circle. I used yellow cardstock from my stash, gold ribbon from RRR, background paper from Sweet Peach Crop Shop, St. Patrick's stamp from Stampin' Up, Lucky stamp from Making Memories, bling from K&Co. and the rest of stuff including the frame and red square from my stash. Used a lot of pop dots on this one, though you can't tell from the angle of the picture. I used my ATG gun, which, btw if you don't own one, you are missing out! It is so easy to use and the adhesive lasts forever. Tip: Buy it at Michael's or Joann's with a 40% off coupon. Then it's affordable. :0) The shamrock is cut in a really pretty glittery green. The flash makes it look more gold. The size of the card is 6" square. Square cards are fun because it seems like you can squeeze more onto them.
Well I hope you all enjoy and have a Fantabulous Monday!!!
