I don't really celebrate St. Patrick's Day though I do remember that one year, my daughter Courtney decided to color her hair green for school on St. Patrick's Day! I had created a scrapbooking layout to preserve that moment in time.
I started by cutting a standard card base from Emerald Envy, and two mattes–one Basic Black, one Whisper White. I used the Festive Embossing Folder to emboss the Basic Black Matte and adhered it to the card front using Fast Fuse Adhesive.
Next, I used my Make a Medallion stamp set to create the focal image for my card. Using my MISTI, I stamped one part onto a piece of Emerald Envy using Emerald Envy ink. I moved the paper to the upper portion of my MISTI and lined up the remaining ring of the medallion on top. Before stamping, I used my Embossing Buddy to be sure I would have no stray embossing powder. I used Versamark to stamp this ring and then heat embossed it using Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder.
A circle die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits was used to die cut the stamped medallion. A scalloped circle, from the Layering Circles Framelits, was used to die cut some Gold Glimmer paper and then the medallion was layered on top using Glue Dots.
The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in gold. Foam Adhesive Strip was used to adhere the sentiment to the medallion. The medallion was then adhered to the card front using Dimensionals. A length of the now retired Silky Emerald Ribbon was tied in a bow and adhered under the medallion with a glue dot.
To create just a bit of interest for the inside of the card, the Gold Wink of Stella pen was "flicked" to produce glittery gold splatter on the Whisper White matte. It was then adhered inside the card.
I think that the Emerald Envy goes really well with gold against the black background!
