Happy St. Patrick’s Day Card Using Hearts

One of the most fun things about stamping is finding an alternative way to use a stamp. For example the card today is a Happy St. Patrick’s Day Card made with the Stampin’ Up! Valentine’s stamp sets, Heart to Heart and Heartfelt.

I just love how the hearts can be used to make the shamrocks.

Measurements

Measurements: Basic White Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; 6 x 6 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP)-Regals: Garden Green 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches; Basic White CS: 5 x 3 3/4 inches and 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches; Garden Green CS: 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches.

Stamping

Start out by using Garden Green ink to stamp the sentiment “Happy St. Patrick’s Day”. The sentiment comes from the A Wish For Everything stamp set. This is an excellent stamp set for the beginner stamper as it has most of the holidays along with sentiments for the inside of a card. You can purchase the A Wish For Everything HERE.

To start creating the shamrocks, use the large outline heart in the Heartfelt stamp set. Reminder: Use a pad under the Photopolymer stamps to help get the best image. You can use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat like I have, or use the Stampin’ Up! catalog.

Next use the small solid heart in the Heart to Heart stamp set and create the smaller shamrocks.

To finish up I used the stem in the In Bloom stamp set. If you do not have this set, you could also just use the Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker to make the stems.

Putting the Card Together

That is it for the stamping. Now adhere the stamped card piece to the Garden Green 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. Then adhere the card piece to the front panel of the Basic White CS card base. Remember to use your Bone Folder on the Basic White CS card base to get a crisp fold.

Punching out the Sentiment

Using the Double Oval Punch, punch a scalloped oval from the 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch Garden Green CS. Then use the solid oval to punch out the “Happy St. Patrick’s Day” sentiment. Adhere the Basic White oval to the Garden Green scalloped oval.

Use the Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the card front. This is a great card, but you could add some Bling!

Bling!

I thought gold bling! was the most appropriate for this card. The Gold Glitter Enamel Dots fit the bill. I use the Take Your Pick tool to move the dots from the acetate sheet to the card front. The Take Your Pick tool makes this very easy.

Viola! You have made a great St. Patrick’s card complete with Bling!
