This card originally appeared on my blog last year: more green goodness but I liked it so much I wanted to re-post it.
Don't have any St. Patrick's day stamp sets and want to make a card? Just look to your stamps for something from a recent holiday .... any heart shaped stamped or heart shaped punch will work!
In this card, each of the four petals is made from the heart stamp in the Always stamp set. Cool, huh? I embossed Vanilla EP over watercolor paper - and then watercolored in Glorious Green and Green Galore (both also used as cardstock colors). I was going to use a regular rhinestone brad .... when I discovered this beauty in my "stash" (I think its from K & Co.). This could be substiuted to make your project "SU Only" if you need to. The technique is known as embossed resist.
The only thing I think I will change is I want to change a ribbon in wider satin .... I think that would look more balanced. On a related note, I miss these colors from SU - they were retired and I have always loved how rich and vibrant these are (so glad I kept reinkers in these colors).
Have a great St. Patrick's Day! What are your plans for today? Corned Beef is in my plans for today!
