Bit of the Green!

Card design ©Sharon M. Reinhart 2011
Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Although I don't typically make cards specifically for this day, I do celebrate and honor this day with a bit of the green. This card would be perfect for a friend or loved one.  I had my daughter's in mind when I created this one. The base card is created using green linen card stock with an ivory pearl paper layered on top. The pearl paper was embossed using the square lattice textured impressions folder created for Stampin' Up by Sizzix. The next layer is a beautiful printed paper found in a 6 inch paper pad by Kaisercraft called the English Rose collection. The heart was die cut using a Spellbinder's Nestabilitie scallop die and then wrapped with beautiful thread from Wonderfil. The stamped words were generated using olive pastel Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink by Clearsnap and a Crafty Individuals stamp by Magenta. To finish it off, a sheer satin edge ribbon by Offray was used. I think it turned out quite nicely, hope you enjoy it!
Have a great day!
