Just in time for getting St. Patrick's Day cards ready I became the owner of some of the newly released ink and card stock from Gina K. Designs called Apple Mint. It is such a pretty spring colored green shade and I really love it. It works so well with the Gina K. Designs Christmas Pine in this card I created.
For this card I used the sentiment and the four leaf clover from the CAS-UAL Fridays Stamps set called Clover. I love all the wonderful sentiments on that set and I know it will be a great asset for many St. Patrick Days to come too! The clover was colored in with Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. By blending several colors together I was able to match the color of the Apple Mint and the Christmas Pine colors. I popped that clover to give some dimension to the card.
I also used several dies from Cheery Lynn Designs. I just love the big Fleur De Lis Facer die which dresses up a card so well. I cut it from white card stock and then lined it with the Apple Mint card stock. I stamped in the sentiment with Christmas Pine ink and added the green daisies which are die cut as well. They were sponged with some of the Christmas Pine ink and I used a small button brad from Eyelet Outlet for the center. The daisies were placed over the Christmas Pine card stock flourish die cuts from Cheery Lynn Designs. The last addition to the card was the satin ribbon.
Here is a recap of the Cheery Lynn Dies used.
