St. Patrick's Day Cut Out Card & a Free Printable

This fortnight's theme over at Creative Cutting Challenge is St. Patrick's Day and because of this, I created not only a card set (Shamrock Cards) but also a printable (scroll down for details).  This card was really easy to do.  With my electronic cutter, I cut the base from green cardstock and the round border from gray-green cardstock.  The card itself was cut from white cardstock.  I used silver ink to stamp the swirled background, using a mask to keep the area that would be under the shamrock cutouts clean.  Once I laid down the circle border, I added a border of silver Stickles to the edge of the cutout.  A ribbon was added and the front was done!
On the inside of the card, I placed the printable on an angle and added the sentiment...hand written on oval punched cardstock.  Isn't the Lucky Girl sweet?!  And she's my gift to you for the next week.
Grab the printable image FREE HERE until March 11th.
Sorry, this image is no longer available.
If you use an electronic cutter, I hope you'll join in the "St. Patrick's Day" Challenge and show us your green! Just click Here for information.
