Kiss Me....I'm Irish!

Hello TRC Fans!  In our house, St. Patrick's Day is a real celebration!  I decorate the kitchen table and make an american feast of Corned Beef and Cabbage.   When I saw the Add-On stamp set - Feeling Lucky - I could almost picture this card in my mind!

This card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2", which is an A2 size card.  I cut the green dot patterned paper to 4 x 5 1/4" and glued it to the Kraft cardstock base.  I stamped the shamrock using some green chalk ink onto white cardstock and then stamped the sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento ink all over the strip of white cardstock.  I punched out a circle from the Kraft cardstock and covered it with the gold foil washi tape included in the kit.  I stamped the sentiment and the lips onto some white cardstock and used a smaller circle punch to punch it out.  I layered the sentiment onto my washi covered circle.  I added seam binding and then using some 3d foam squares, I adhered the sentiment circle into place to complete this card.  Here is a close-up.

This was fun to create!   I am going to make a couple more of these cards to send to my 2 daughters that are away at college!  I think that will love this card!
