Hello to all my Irish Friends!

Hi Everyone,

I am getting back into the swing of things....
Today I have a really green card - in honor of St. Patrick's Day!

I used this cool iStencil to make this card.

27-00107 R SC

I sponged it first, then added clear embossing paste and let it dry. Then I added some more color to the edges, making the clear embossed pattern stand out more. Added the "hello" die cut - its from Mama Elephant. The clover is a Marta Stewart punch.

Linking up with:

Stamping Royalty - going green
Cut it up - St. Patty's Day
Sparkle and Shine - see inspiration photo
Inkspirational - geometric
Stamping Smiles Designs - Tic Tac Toe - green, gold, photo
Double Click Skittles - lots of green
I love Stampin' Royalty Challenges

Happy Stenciling!

Fab, love this trip back to my youth when we had these OP Art posters all over our bedrooms. Can still see the ad on the back of my Sounds music paper for them! :)

Is the card 3D, or does it just look 3D? Either way, it's cool!

Thanks for joining us at Cut it Up for our St. Patty's Day challenge!

I think I saw you use that stencil before, Cornelia. I was amazed then and amazed now. It is so cool looking and adding the translucent paste and darker edges really does make the center pop.
