Flourished Shamrock - Atomic Lucky - ECD Friend - May Your Longest List - Side Easel

Yogi here today and it's almost time for St Patrick's Day...

I'm using a stamp that was meant for Christmas... but with a little masking it's now good for any time of the year. How many stamps or dies do you have in your stash that you only use for what they were originally meant for?? Why not look at them again and see what you can do with them - you'd be surprised...

I'm using an A Way With Words dies  "Friends"  from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

I'm also using a quote and sentiment stamps from Quietfire Design  ("May Your Longest List at Christmas..."); ("You Are..." 5pce set)

Also using a couple electronic cut files from Suzanne available on Silhouette. Click image to purchase. 

  and the digi paper available from Suzanne on Quietfire Design

Opened the two Silhouette files. Decreased the size of Lucky to 6.5"w. Cut from white cardstock and colored while on my mat with various distress green pads. Removed from mat and embossed both shamrocks using Emerald Creek "Green Sparkle" embossing powder. Clear embossed the tiles for Lucky. Mounted the tiles onto a dark green cardstock and trimmed down.

See template image at right to create the card structure. I used a 12"w light green Bazzill Monochromatic cardstock cut to 5"h. Scored and folded at 7". Then scored diagonally across the 5" section


Fold the "A" over and use it as the template to cut a front piece the width of the card and diagonally to the diagonal score line. Image above card template image on template. Adhere to front of card.

Using my Tim's Stamping Platform, stamped the "You Are So" using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Adhered the "lucky" strip on the bottom and them the flourished Shamrock of the edge of the fold.

On the floor: Printed out the digi paper of the smaller shamrock pattern, trimming down and adhering to floor.

Again used my Stamping Platform, masking of the "Christmas" words and stamping using the black. Stamped the bottom part of the quote onto tracing paper and repositioned my card and stamping. Clear embossed the quote.

Scored the shamrock and adhered to floor to act as my stopper.

Die cut the Friends, fussy cutting the "s" off... inking with a green pad and embossing with the green sparkle embossing powder.

Raided my stash for the letters for "My" (Elizabeth Craft Designs "Upper Case Alphabet")
