You can be selected randomly to win an awesome prize from Handmade Harbour. Go HERE to see some of their great digi-stamps! (This is one of my FAVES!)
Celtic Knot Shamrock: My card is about 5" X 6.5" but I trimmed it down just a touch. Once again, I'm cleaning off my craft table so many of the squares were punched from cardstock laying around. I find great satisfaction is using up little pieces of paper probably because it means less waste. I was raised by parents who "know the value of a dollar" so frugality is second nature to me.
The green squares: The green squares on the card were punched from a larger piece of glossy cardstock that I had colored with alcohol ink (Ranger). The small squares around the outside came from a piece that also had a metallic mixative added in to give it some glimmer. (Pearl Metallic mixative) The center, larger "square" had a touch of turquoise so I matted the squares with a shade of cardstock to match. (also scrap sitting on my table)
Copper: The metallic stickers are from Hot off the Press, Dazzle stickers and I just like the way the flourishes add a little detail to the corners.
Stamps: The center stamp was hand-carved by me several years ago when I needed something Celtic. The shape of the shamrock with the knot incorporated into it was just what I was looking for so I carved it. It's probably about 1.5" wide. The smaller 4-leaf clovers are from a set from Crafty Secrets.
I hope you like the card and it inspires you to Go Green. Whatever you may make, be sure to share it over at Red Carpet Studios so I can take a peek at it! I love to see what other crafters and artists are doing!
