Shamrocks

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Good morning everyone, I'm not sure exactly what St. Patrick's day is all about. Maybe nothing, maybe something wonderful, all I know is it's a fun holiday to make cards for! I'm not Irish, but I love their lovely countryside, their accents and their rubber stamps, ha! Good enough for me! Here's a card featuring those 'Lucky Kitties' from Lili of the Valley.

I love using Basic Grey Origins for St. Patrick's day, perfect combination of greens and earthy browns. The kitties were colored with Copics, and shaded with colored pencils. 

I found this gorgeous shamrock frame in the freebie section of the Silhouette Plus forum. I was so worried I would not be able to get it to cut right on my Cameo, especially because I was going to use very thick PTI cardstock, but I ratcheted the pressure up to 4, and it cut like a dream! So happy....


Thank you for visiting my blog, have a safe and happy St. Patrick's day, I'm off to start the corned beef!
