Simply Said....A Clover????

Well....I have had this card pondering in my little head for a few days. I wanted to make a St. Patrick's Day card using a stamp set intended for other purposes. What better color to use for St Patty's day???? Wild Wasabi, of course!



Well...after the obvious greens in the Bold Bright family...but you know me....I needed accessories-ribbon and glitter-that would match perfectly. I'm a little OCD like that. That is what drew me to Stampin' Up!'s product line in the very beginning....the fact that everything matches perfectly....without mistake. You know what I mean. You buy a red sweater...just try to match that red exactly somewhere else with an accessory. Virtually impossible! Even a color as simple as black....buy a black shirt, black pants, black socks and black accessories in different places....I would almost guarantee you the blacks would not match perfectly. Maybe to some....that's not a big deal...but to me...when it is something I am making or designing....it has to match perfectly! I really digressed today, huh? Well...enough of my rambling!



Here is my card today:

Got you wondering where my stamps come from yet?

Well.....here is another picture......


The shamrock was created using the heart stamp from Simply Said and the stem is from Heartfelt Thanks. Did you guess it right? My sentiment is from the Three for You Punch Box. I don't have a dedicated Happy St. Patrick's Day stamp so I thought this one was perfect.

Notice the bling factor of this baby?????? I used my 2 way gel pen to outline the clover leaves and stem and sprinkled with my beloved cosmo glitter in celery. I gotta tell you....I LOVE THIS GLITTER!!!!!!!! It is as smooth as Dazzling Diamonds but colored! Does it get any better than that???? I don't think so! :)

Did I hear someone ask if my card opened like a typical card?

Maybe a side fold?

Maybe a top fold, if I am feeling frisky?

Well check this out!

I know....it isn't like I invented electricity....but The card itself is flat, un-openable. (is that a word???) The main image panel is actually the card! I thought it was kind of cute! Gives the recipient something to think about, right?

I love it!I am trying to make one like it what are the measurements of the white paper you stamped your clover on? I love the tricky fold idea.
