First of all – Happy St Patrick’s Day everyone! I didn’t even realize it was today until my husband told me this morning. My neighbours in our new apartment are Irish so I made my very first St Patty’s Day card to give them (along with some home-baked chocolate chip cookies! yummmy!).
I have two more cards to share with you today. I have seen the embedded embossing technique and have been wanting to try it for myself. I LOVE IT! I hope you like what I did with it too 🙂 * I saw this tutorial on stamping411 after I made this card so if you want to see how it’s done – go here! *
It’s kind of hard to see, but I added a little detail along the edges of my white shapes so they weren’t too plain.
My third card is my entry for this week’s stamping411 sketch. The size of my flowers were too big for the card so I kind of cheated a little bit by adding two little flower squares instead of one more big one.
My new year is coming up soon so I will be sending this card to my niece to wish her a happy NawRuz! The set is a retired one that I really like called Punched Posies so that goes with SU only’s challenge this week to use a retired set. I might end up entering another card in their challenge because I have several retired sets that I couldn’t bear to part with!
