Irish Blessing


Today is the first day of February.  Cardmakers are always working ahead so it should come as no surprise that I have a St. Patrick's Day card to share with you.  I'm hoping McDonald's will get on the St. Patrick's Day bandwagon with me and start serving up those yummy shamrock shakes...I'm ready!

For my card, I used an image and sentiment that will be coming soon to the DRS Designs website.  I stamped the sentiment (1100G) with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto white cardstock.  I cut around the sentiment with a die, paper pierced around the panel and lightly sponged with Adirondack Lettuce dye.

I stamped the border of shamrocks (1080F) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a strip of X-Press It cardstock that was cut with a die.  I colored the shamrocks with Copic markers. I stamped the shamrocks again onto a scrap piece of X-Press It cardstock for some extra shamrocks.

The larger card panel is a piece of green cardstock that was repeatedly stamped with DRS Designs "Lines O'Plenty Background" using Adirondack Lettuce dye.  I paper pierced around this panel and faux-stitched with a white colored pencil.

Here's to a great weekend.  Those shakes should be arriving any day now, LOL!

I thought you stitched this. Had to get a closer look after reading your directions. Very cool, don't know why I never thought about using a white pencil before. You're so smart. Have a fab week sweetie.
