CCC#025: March Challenge - Luck o' the Irish

CCC#025: March Monthly Challenge
Luck o' the Irish

Hey there, and Happy March! Spring is on the way, I promise! :) We've had a very cold and much snowier than usual winter here on the East Coast and we could not be more ready for it!

This month's challenge is to make a project inspired by St. Patrick's Day. It's a fun challenge, but I decided not to take it too literally, since St. Patrick's Day isn't really a big deal for me. (Hey, I'm not Irish, and I don't like beer, what can I say?) My card actually came about sort of accidentally. I was going to use a different color combination, but they I decided to do rainbow colors and gold instead - inspired by the leprachaun's pot of gold at the end of the rainbow :)

I used one stamp set for this card - Perfect Pennants. I used the strip of dots, stamped multiple times on the diagonal in rainbow colors on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. I then adhered that behind the white panel with the heart cut out, using Stampin' Dimensionals. The adorable little hello banner was stamped in Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder. To make the whole thing pop, I backed it with a Basic Black card base, with a few doodle lines in white gel pen.

This CAS card came together super easily and quickly and would be really easy to mass-produce - even quicker if you used a larger background stamp that could cover the entire cut-out heart in one stamp! You could also make it in any color combination, or swap out what shape Framelit you use to cut the window. Super simple and totally cute!

Happy Stampin'! :)
