I decided to go ahead and participate in some challenges, So i'm going to have to put each of the cards on separate blog posts.
I am adding this project to the Simon Says Stamp " A Bit O' Green" Challenge and the Peachy Keen Stamps Photo Inspiration Challenge
The challenge is to use the following photo as inspiration for a project
I saw the color pallet and instantly thought St. Patty's Day, if you look at the photo you can just smell the scent of Irish Spring Soap in the air :)
I started off with a A2 sized card stock, and using my Martha Steward Scoreboard, I scored the cardstock at an angle at each 1/2 inch interval for the entire lenth of the card. I then Rotated the card 90 degrees and proceeded to score the cardstock at 1/2 inch intervals again.
The result is a beautiful textured background
I added some brown Polka dot pattern paper from Recollections Simply Autumn
I also used the following shapes from Silhouette Online Store:
3 artisan faux stitches - set 1 9(Design #14887)
pinch proof shamrock (Design #39327)
I Cut one of the Artisan Faux Stiches out of red cardstock and the pinch proof shamrock I used just the scalloped circle/layer and banner. I also scored the layering piece of the scalloped circle to make it match the background
I changed out the shamrock to use PPPR Shamrock Faces Cutting File because I much prefered the shape of this shamrock.
For the face I used PK-146 Piles of Smiles 1" I colored it in with my white Gel pen and my Prismacolor Pencils
and the sentiment comes from PKSC-02 February 2012 I just Masked off "on" from the stamp that reads "On St. Patty's Day" which I stamped in SU Garden Green Ink
I finished the card with just a bow of Olive Green Timeless Twine
Hope you like this card!
