Shamrock Flip Card

Here is my DT submission--another flip card--for the latest Creative Cutting Challenge--"St.Patrick's Day".  I'm having so much fun with this flip card cut file!  So easy to create when you use a SVG for the card base.  
You can get it HERE
The base paper I chose was two sided so I didn't use a base piece for this card...just the single sheet of paper.  I accented the card with pink, a color that looks great with green and makes it a bit more fun than traditional St. Patrick's Day colors.  The vertical strip was punched (Martha Stewart) from pink card stock.  A strip of the green cardstock was placed on top of the pink and I added the white faux stitches with a white gel pen.
I cut the shamrock using a file from my St. Patrick's Day Set.  Instead of removing the center portion, I popped it up with foam tape and gently bent the petals so you get a glimpse of the pink underneath.  A green gem was placed in the middle.
Flip open the card and you'll see the sentiment, again accented with the pink cardstock.  The pot of gold was also cut using a file from my St. Patrick's Day Set.  I stamped the sentiment on the pot and added gold Stickles to the top.  The bottom sentiment was simply added to the pink cardstock using my printer.
Don't forget to check out the other St. Paddy's Day DT projects over at the  Creative Cutting Challenge.  I hope that if you also use an electronic cutting machine and software to create with that you'll join us and play along.

Great choice of colours...the pink really does make everything stand out and gives your card a retro feel too. Thanks for playing in our St Patrick's Day challenge at Opus Gluei.
