"St. Patrick's Day Greetings"
This first card has a patterned paper background edged with Bundled Sage distress ink, and a pile of diecuts on the right of embossed stamps interspersed with green card.
If you look closely, you'll see that the "Shamrock" is actually made up of diecut hearts with a pearl stuck in the centre to hide the joins!
"Top of the Mornin' to You"
This second card uses Peeled Paint distress ink which gives a grungier feel. The background for this card is hand-stamped and heat-embossed with a verdigris powder (a mixture of green and gold). The decorative hearts on the Shamrock are diecut from spare pieces of the background.
