Lucky St. Patrick's Day Card

Hello friends! I hope you're having a wonderful week and you're staying warm. It snowed here in Oklahoma yesterday and today we have more chances of freezing rain. Needless to say it's a great day to stay in my craft room!

When it comes to sending St. Patrick's Day cards, my recipient list is small. I send cards to my immediate family and that's not very many. I enjoy making cards for this green shamrock filled holiday. Maybe it's my Irish heritage or maybe it's because I LOVE the color green, but I think making St. Patrick's Day Cards is fun. This Lucky St. Patrick's Day Card is made using Edward Elephant by Bugaboo Digi Stamps, which I colored with Copic markers. The design came from this weeks Sweet Sketch Wednesday by Arlana Patten. Well, that's about it. I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Lucky St. Patrick's Day Card Supplies:
  • Paper: Whisper White, Garden Green, and Basic Black card stock by Stampin' Up! pastel yellow card stock by Core'dinations, Shamrock patterned paper by Recollections, and green/yellow plaid patterned paper by Paper Pizazz.
  • Stamps: Edward Elephant St. Patrick's Day digi stamp by Bugaboo and Lucky Day stamp by Stampin' Up! (I masked the shamrock and just used the Lucky!)
  • Inks & Coloring: Classic stampin' pad in Basic Black and Copic markers (100, 110, C3, C5, E50 G46, R83, RV34, YG17, YG61, Y00, Y17, Y18, Y28, and colorless blender).

  8. Like the Elephant wearing the Leprechaun Hat and all the Irish Green. As far as snow my Daughter goes to college in KC, MO and she had snow days Thurs & Fri and emailed me photos of the deep snow they had the past 2 days. They had cleared the sidewalks well but the snow was deep where it was on sides. Her apt & college are near the location where the gas line leak fire that happened this past wk in KC, MO. Thank you for entering PDE Hat challenge.
