Pretty in Green

Hi there,

Time for another card, and this is another swap.  I’m really not sure why I entered so many different swaps due around the same time, I think perhaps I didn’t look closely enough at the due dates.  This March swap had another open theme.  Being March I decided to use a green theme for St Patrick’s Day.  From there, the card just came together.

Sue Wilson: New Zealand Collection - Background Noble Collection - Pierced Ovals

Cardstock:  White, green
Ink:  Archival Ink: Sap Green
Stamps: Flourishes: Taglines
Dies: Sue Wilson: New Zealand Collection, Background,
Noble Collection, Double Pierced Ovals
Other: Foam tape, glue, double-sided tape

Using the #1 die from the Background set, I cut a piece of white cardstock, trimmed a piece of green cardstock the same size and glued them together, and adhered this to a  white card base I had trimmed to the same size.

With the #2 die from the same set, I cut a piece of green cardstock, then cut a piece of white card stock using the #2 and #3 dies (outline and insert) from the set, and glued these two pieces together.  Using the #5 die from the same set, I cut another piece of green cardstock and clued this in the centre of the insert cut out.  I adhered this to the card base with foam tape.

Sue Wilson: Noble Collection - Double Pierced Ovals

With dies from the Double Pierced Ovals set, I cut one oval from green cardstock and a smaller one from white cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment on the white oval, adhered it to the green oval, then added it to the card.

Bye for now,

Penny
