Three Square

Happy Sunday, stampers.  I hope you have had a great weekend and got to play in the ink a bit.

I don't usually do St. Patrick's Day cards, but a friend asked me today if I did because she needed some ideas.  I wondered if I even had anything I could use. 

The Sale-a-bration set, So Happy for You, was sitting on the table, brand spanking new, and it had a tiny shamrock!  Not only could I do something for St. Patrick's Day but It was a perfect fit for the Less is More challenge to do a card with 3 squares!

Challenge 13 over at SUO  is to do a card using something from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  This should work for that challenge too.

The shamrocks are inked with Wild Wasabi (stems) & Garden Green then stamped on 1" squares of Whisper White.

I chose to use the good luck sentiment in this set.  I love the font and it made me think of leprechauns and fun.

I decided to add a few paper piercings under the sentiment.  It's probably a little more than it needed.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  So Happy for You
Ink:  SU Markers (Wild Wasabi, Garden Green)
Paper:  Whisper White, Garden Green
Accessories:  Paper Piercer, Mat Pack

And here is a similar card...

 I rounded some of the corners on the shamrock squares, used the sentiment from Teeny, Tiny Wishes and added a bit of Wild Wasabi ribbon that had been stashed away for a couple of years.

Thanks for coming by to visit.  Enjoy!

The green on your cards is so vibrant, perfectly complimenting with the little shamrocks. x
