Wearing 'O the Green

Happy St. Patrick's Day a little bit early to all who celebrate this festive day! I'm not Irish, but I do enjoy breaking out of the norm and creating something fun and green for such a day as this. In truth, I had a request for some St. Patrick's day cards so here they are. Nothing special, just lots of green!

I'll start with two vintage images I found online and printed on my home printer.

I don't have any clover stamps so I used a small heart to create my own clover that the little MFT Happy Panda is holding on to.

Again, using the same heart to create a little Irish magic!

Clean and layered and some pretty, fresh greens... Love it!
The clover was created using the smallest MFT stitched heart die.

I'll be entering one of these cards into the following challenges:

Enjoy this special day! Thanks so much for visiting~ Blessings~ Birgit

All your cards are wonderful but being a CAS girl I especially like the one with the little heart butterfly flitting off :-) Thanks for playing along with us at The Card Concept!

Lovely cards Birgit. Great idea using a heart to make your shamrocks.

The vintage image is super. Granny had a picnic basket like that but she was Scottish. Such wonderfully lovely art. Thank you so much for entering our 221st challenge. We are always delighted to see your entries.

Hi Birgit these are ALL special!! I love the delicate soft feeling of each one. I am especially enamored by that little -pink cheeked - Panda!!


Birgit said...

These are all great.i love the retro look of the first two because they look like the old fashioned post cards one would get. I really like how you created the clover using a heart...I have to remember that. These are all sweet.

Such a wonderful vintage image and lovely lay-out. We are so blessed with your participation in our previous Challenge and would love to have you back for our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. I want to share with you the inspiration from God's Word from Habakkuk 2:3-4 and it says, " For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay. “See, the enemy is puffed up; his desires are not upright— but the righteous person will live by his faithfulness---." Have an awesome week!
