HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!, Clean & Simple Shamrock Card...

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

One of the first stamps I bought, over 15 years ago, had this traditional Gaelic blessing and I thought it was appropriate for the day!  Today I have a CAS card to share with you for St. Patrick's Day.  I decided to use one of the heart images from the Take It To Heart stamp set from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  I wanted to show the versatility of a stamp set some may feel is just a Valentine's Day set.  Another option you could use is the heart image from the P.S. I Love You stamp set.

I cut the heart images out with the Framelits and then layered them on hearts cut with the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit.  I embossed the front of the card with the Framed Tulips embossing folder.  I adhered a piece of Old Olive 1/8" Ribbon to the front of the card for the shamrock stem and then adhered the three hearts with Stampin' Dimensionals.  For the sentiment, I used one from all-purpose Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.  Hope you enjoyed my simple card!
