Hi it’s Tracey here today and I have a card to share with you for St. Patrick’s Day which is coming up this weekend!
Here are the dies that I used for today’s card…
My card used the Dahlia Mini Frame Set and I chose some gold sparkle cardstock to use for my top layer and to add a bit of luck to the recipient.
I was away at a stamping retreat last weekend and I was introduced to 4 bar cards. Such a cute, tiny canvas and the Dahlia Mini Frame fits perfectly onto it. So today’s card is a 4 bar card which is 4 7/8″ x 3.5″. I started off by cutting Layer A of the Dahlia Mini Frame from gold sparkle cardstock, then layers B and C from two different shades of green cardstock. The layers were adhered together using liquid glue. Once it as dry it was adhered to the 4 bar card base.
To create my tiny clover I die cut three tiny hearts from the Simple Hearts die set and arranged them in the shape of a clover and I hand cut a tiny stem–all from the same green I used for layer C of my frame cuts.
The little handmade clover sits perfectly inside the bottom right of the frame and is all you need to convey the message that this you are sending the Luck of the Irish!
The Dahlia Mini Frame set can be used for so many occasions throughout the year just by switching up the colours, the sentiments and even the additions, just like the closer I created here today. You just need to use a little imagination. Thanks for stopping by today and come back on Friday for some more inspiration!
