Happy St. Patrick's day everyone! Even if you're not Irish, I think we all get into wearing green today or celebrating with a traditional Irish meal. I made Irish oatmeal this morning, does that count??
I pre-ordered this MFT quilt die in January, and it finally arrived yesterday, so I decided to pull out my snippets and make a card to celebrate St. Patrick's day. I die cut the quilt die from textured heavy green cardstock, and then diecut a very old snippet of shamrock dsp, placing the dsp pieces inside the quilt framework. I fussy cut a shamrock from the dsp, and layered it with matching cardstock, then covered it with Glossy accents and popped it up on foam tape for a little interest. The sentiment is from SU! and I added some dots with a Tombow marker. The card base is GinaK Ivory, in spite of my poor editing skills making it appear white.
When I cut this quilt die with 2 colors, I had leftover snippets, so I made a 2nd card with them....
This one is on a white card base, and I added some outside triangle die cuts with yet another snippet of matching green dsp. I hand-cut the center shamrock from the dsp, colored it with Copics, and popped it up on foam tape. The small shamrock by the sentiment was also fussy cut from the dsp. I've held onto this shamrock paper for probably a decade or more, and it's finally been used now. I guess that makes room for more snippets, right? lol
I'll share these over at the Snippets Playground #168, as well as the Cuttlebug Mania "freeze frame" challenge - to use or make a frame. I think this quilt square is a frame of sorts since the inside pieces were removed and replaced with others. Challenge police anyone?
Thanks for stopping by today and I wish you a very lucky day filled rainbows and a pot of gold too!
