Today I wanted to play with some new toys. New stamps and new dies as well as new pattern paper were tools I used today to create this card. Now this card could be a St. Patrick card or just a plain friendship card to my way of thinking so I am not sure how it will end up being used.

And here is the view from the front. I think maybe you can see the outside details a bit better with this photo.

The stamps and the sentiment are from the CAS-UAL FRIDAYS stamp set called Clover. I used Momento Danube Blue and Cottage Ivy for stamping the images and then colored them in with my Bic Mark-It alcohol ink pens.

Once I had the line of clovers and the sentiment completed on white card stock I then took the Die-Namics Die and cut out the center panel and also using the same die set to cut out the pattern paper panel too. The pattern paper is from My Favorite Things and is called Subtle Plaids.

I added a blue ribbon to the white center panel and also added another larger clover which was colored and popped up.

Here is a flat view of the design.

Die-Namic Die used:
Wonky Stitches Rectangle Stacker MFT 839

I am so blessed to have so many friends and many of you I have only met through the internet but none the less you are all very precious to me. Thanks for being my friend and for coming by now and then to leave such lovely comments.
