Lucky You!


This card uses a sketch Julee created for the Verve Visual Honored Guest Card Contest that starts today. For a chance to win, all you need to do is submit a link to a card using the sketch provided. If chosen, you could be the next Verve Honored Guest and will get to play with the March release sets right along with the Verve Visual Design Team. There will be some random prize drawings throughout the contest, so be sure to get your entries submitted. For all the details and to see the sketch, check out the Verve Blog. Everyone on the design team has created a card with this sketch, so be sure to check out their creations, too!
For this card, I used the Heart to Heart set. I stamped and cut out three of the hearts and put them together to make a clover. I was going to add a fourth on the bottom, but it just didn't look right, so I stuck with three. You can't see it very well in the photo, but there's paper piercing along the bottom of the card that sort of "mimics" the swirls in the hearts. For the sentiment, I used the Starlight Starbright set and just inked up "lucky" and "you" from one of the sentiments in the set. To finish, I added the rhinestone brad in the middle of the clover. So, head on over to the Verve Blog to check out the sketch and the details for the contest! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Heart to Heart, Starlight Starbright (Verve Visual); Paper- Georgia Pacific, Basic Black, Wild Wasabi; Ink- Wild Wasabi, Basic Black; Accessories- Ornare piercing template, white organdy ribbon (Darice), horizontal slot punch (SU), paper piercer

What a super fun card! I always hope to make St Patty's day cards but never quite do it. Maybe this year?

What a sweet St. Patty's Day card. I'd say I love the colours but what else but green works for St. Patty's day.
