There's a great challenge going on over at Words 2 Craft By! Our words for our March/April challenge come to us from an old Irish proverb:
A good friend is like a four-leaf clover: hard to find and lucky to have.
My card was made for a stamp-club buddy who gifted me with several sets of nesting dies, including the frame dies used on the card shown below. (Thanks again, Mary Anne! I use your gifts all the time!)
|a quasi New Year's resolution to decorate card interiors...|
|... and envelopes (using SU envelope liner die)|
In addition to being the first time for using these nesting dies, it was also the first time to use new Paper Smooches botanicals 2 dies, the "lucky" word die and a Xyron of my very own. The color for my computer-generated text was based on the rgb values of Tip Top Taupe, which I slightly darkened.
While I didn't make any "official" New Year's crafting resolutions for 2017, I am trying to do a little bit more with envelopes and/or card insides. For this card, I made a point of doing something with both. :)
I came across the dp at Tuesday Morning. This might be the first Graphic 45 paper I've ever used. I don't typically "do vintage," but I LOVE this paper collection.
Think I'm going to link this up for the following challenges: Simon Says Handmade Flowers, Simon Says Bit O' Green, and Shopping Our Stash Luck O' the Irish.
We're hoping you'll join us over at Words 2 Craft By. Even after St. Patrick's Day, there are still lots and lots of ways to go with this quote. You could feature friends, blessings, all things Irish, ... or a combination of two or more of these. :)
See you over at W2CB, Until then, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'! And, have a great weekend.
