Stampin' Celebration #43

We're celebrating St. Patty's day again over at Stampin' Celebration!  What a yummy looking inspiration piece.  :-) Now I don't have any St. Patrick's Day stamps, but I do have the little shamrock that is part of the Sale-A-Bration set So Happy For You.  So, here's what I did:

Unfortunately I couldn't get this card to photograph particularly well, but you get the idea.  :-)  It's been awhile since I've done a one-layer card, but I really like the simplicity of them.  I started by scoring across the card twice (at 2" and 3" from the bottom of the card front) and then stamped the shamrocks between the score lines with Certainly Celery and Old Olive ink.  

The sentiment is also stamped with Old Olive, and I added the 1/8" Old Olive taffeta ribbon.  I added some Smooch Accent Ink on top of the shamrocks.  In real life it makes them sparkly, in the photo it makes them look splotchy.  :-) 

Make sure to head over to Stampin' Celebration to see what the other Design Team members have been up to this week.  You'll also want to see who our Guest Designer is for this week.  Then make sure to play along with us!

Love the little shamrocks! Great job and I can imagine the sparkle from the Smooch Ink too! TFS!

Love the CAS card this week Allison! I am going to have to try the scoring on the card thing, because it looks so good!

what a great idea to score the card to create the frame for the shamrocks. Love the simplicity of it.

What a great card! Love the clean lines. The row of shamrocks just "pops".
