Lucky to Know You

I so love this sentiment and wish it to all of you! This sentiment is part of the new stamp set, Lucky to Know You. I created my card with St. Patrick’s Day in mind. I don’t send out a lot of St. Patrick’s Day cards, but do send a few to close friends and family. Here is a look at the complete set, which works for so much more than just St. Patrick’s Day-

When I saw the sketch challenge at As You See it Challenge, this stamp set instantly came to mind. The challenge is pretty much a blank slate, but I took full advantage of the sentiment portion. Here is the original sketch design if you would like to play along-

To create my card, I started by stamping my sentiment in Evergreen ink. I then added a strip of gold shimmer trim and a random border of four leaf clovers. The panel was then cut with a stitched die and mounted onto Evergreen cardstock. A touch of color was added with Copic markers. A few gold glitter gems complete the card.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

  • C1967 Lucky to Know You Stamp Set
  • 1385 White Daisy Cardstock
  • X6030 Evergreen Cardstock

  1. That’s a great St Patrick’s Day card! I’d not thought of using the blank space for a large sentiment but it works well for that. Love that strip of clover leaves – perfect! Thanks for joining us at As You See It.

  2. Allisa your Irish blessing is the perfect way to fill that large panel and I love the clover leaf border too and those touches of gold add some proper leprachaun-inspired sparkle! Thanks for playing along with our sketch challenge over at As You See It!

  3. Emerald green and gold are always such a pretty combination. Your card is lovely. Thanks so much for thinking of us at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers with your glitter card!
