St. Patrick's Day

Thanks for stopping by, today I have a card made for family for St. Patrick's Day. I first found the patterned paper and then I found the stamp...all while driving from Ohio to Maryland in January. Hubs is very understanding about hitting the craft stores I manage to unearth when we are on a road trip. He agrees to stop, I agree to a 30 minute door to check out line time frame.  It works well for us both. I don't over buy, and he's not stuck twiddling thumbs. He is even cool about using an extra coupon for me. We make this trip once or twice a year, it is my one and only chance to see inside an Archiver's.  I could spend hours in there!

The stamp is from Inkadinkado, the patterned paper is Celtic Crossings from Reminisce.  The sentiment I printed on green card stock, the font is Juice. I thought it looked just right. The gem came from Linda in a card swap last month, I used a green spectrum noir marker to color it. I love that gems and pearls can be colored using alcohol markers. I also used Distress Ink behind the shamrock.

Have a great weekend and Happy St. Patrick's Day.

  1. Awesome Card, Cat! I love Archiver's too. It's a good thing it's not too close to me, I would spend too much money there! Your hubs is so sweet to be patient with your crafty shopping! Have a great weekend!

  2. This is a beautiful card which looks better in person. So glad I received one with the bonus puzzles inside. Thanks so much.
