Shamrock Top Hat
Cead Mile Failte, friends! It means " a hundred thousand welcomes" in Gaelic. . .
I'll be the first to admit that sending St. Patrick's Day cards isn't really a priority on my to-do list. More than likely this holiday will be a repeat of the Christmas cards I never sent last year! I'm not Irish, and I don't even claim to be on the one day a year when everyone is virtually adopted in. However, when I find a really great stamp set like this new "Shamrock Top Hat" designed by Whimsy Stamps own Deb Davis, I want to shout like Oprah, "YOU get a card, and YOU get a card, and YOU get a card! : )
Everyone get's a St. Patrick's Day card! But, not really. . .
*A full list of supplies is located at the end of this post.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Jolly Green cardstock. Using the Gina Marie Scalloped Stitched Nesting Rectangle dies, I cut the frame from Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in Hero Arts Green Apple ink. On a separate piece of Jolly Green cardstock, I stamped the large Shamrock Top Hat in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. After the heat embossing cooled, I fussy cut the top hat and adhered it to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.
Card #2 Details:
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Jolly Green cardstock. I cut a piece of 5 1/4" x 4" shamrock paper and adhered it directly to the card base. Using the Scalloped Nesting Rectangles from Gina Marie Designs, I cut the medium sized rectangle from Jolly Green cardstock. I stamped the sentiment on the scalloped rectangle with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Lastly, I stamped the large Shamrock Top Hat in Green Apple ink on white cardstock and fussy cut the hat. I adhered the hat to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.
I hope you have enjoyed these fun and festive cards, and even more so if you can claim true Irish descent.
Thanks for visiting and top o' the mornin' to ya!
