St. Patrick's Day Card - February Make and Take 3

Good morning everyone! I hope you’re all having a wonderful Wednesday! Today I have the third card from the February Make and Take to share with you and the timing couldn’t be more perfect! This is the St. Patrick’s day card that the ladies made.

Stamps: Lucky Shamrock
Cardstock: Pear Pizzaz, Whisper White, Old Olive, Basic Grey,
DSP: Springtime Designer Series Paper
Ink: Always Artichoke
Accessories: 1 ¾” Circle Punch, 2 3/8” Scalloped Circle Punch, Needle Tool, Mat Pack, Gold Brads, 1 ¼” Night of Navy Striped Ribbon, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Die, Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The card base is 5 ½” x 8 ½” Pear Pizzaz cardstock scored at 4 ¼”. The next layer is a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut at 3 ¾” x 5”. The Whisper White cardstock was run through the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Die and was adhered to the card front.

A piece of Springtime DSP was cut at 2 ¼” x 3 ¼” and was adhered to a 2 ½” x 3 ½” piece of Basic Grey cardstock. A piece of 1 ¼” Night of Navy Striped ribbon was folded in half and placed under the upper left hand corner of the DSP and Basic Grey layer. The Needle Tool and Mat Pack were then used to pierce three holes and gold brads were added in the holes. The brads hold the ribbon on as well as add a little gold shine to the card.

The Lucky Shamrock image was stamped in Always Artichoke ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and punched out with the 1 ¾” Circle punch. A scalloped circle was punched out of a scrap of Old Olive cardstock with the 2 3/8” Scalloped Circle punch. The stamped circle was adhered to the scalloped circle and these layers were then adhered to the DSP. The DSP panel was then adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This was a super quick and easy card to put together to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! Well…that’s all that I have for now. Come back tomorrow to see the last card from the February Make and Take! Have fun stamping!
