For my St Patty's day card, today, I have used the current sketch for our latest Stella Says Sketch challenge. I used two brand new images for this card. My card features the images, Ava St Patrick's Day Sitter, and clover, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. The green and white shamrock paper is from my stash. I bought this new green and while polka dot paper because it just seemed to match so perfectly and added a touch of fun! I printed and colored Ava, and all the shamrocks, then fussy cut them. The shamrocks and Ava are all attached using foam mounting tape, to allow them to pop for added dimension and 3D effect. Ava is sittin on the larger shamrock, like a good little girl. The sentiment is computer generated and punched with oval and scalloped oval punches.
I'm definitely out of my comfort zone this one, because I always make the standard sized card, unless it would be a fancy fold card. For this one, I went with the tall, thinner oblong card. A definite first for me! I'm pleasantly surprised, though, with how it turned out!
This card is designed to be masculine and is for a very good friend, who truly appreciates a handmade card. I think he's going to love it! Of course, just because its masculine, doesn't men we don't need some bling, right? I added three shiny green pearls, to add that extra touch. The large shamrocks, as well as the shamrocks on Ava's clothing have had sparkle and glitter added, with a clearstar gelly roll pen.
