St Patrick’s Day

I like using seasonal stamps for more than what they are intended.  When I saw the Kiss Me greeting in Candy Conversations, I thought it would work for a St. Patrick's Day card!  This was one of the cards my Candy Conversations class did last week! 



I started with a base of Garden Green.  I layered on Certainly Celery that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Houndstooth impressions folder.  I used a piece of Garden Green Patterns Designer Paper and cut the bottom into a pennant shape.  I used the Designer Label Framelits in two sizes with Basic Black and Certainly Celery cardstock. 


The St. Patrick's Day greeting was stamped in Garden Green on Whisper White along the right edge and put on the front.  The Labelits were popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals along the left side of the greeting.


I stamped Kiss Me three times with Garden Green on Whisper White and punched with the Small Heart Punch.  I put a Rhinestone Jewel in the center and handcut the stem from Garden Green cardstock.


Do you like?  I think it was my favorite of the 5 cards we made!
