Good Luck Card for St. Patrick's Day

It's time to play along with another biweekly challenge at Double Trouble. This is Challenge #161, beginning on Friday, March 1, 2024, and ending on Thursday, March 14, 2024. For details, visit the Double Trouble Blog. Our partner for this challenge is Festive Friday #FF0154. Their inspiration board is below. There are ten items to choose from but you only need three. Using the color green for Double Trouble was my first element. I included four additional items on my card - Gold, Gold Embellishments, Clover, and the Good Luck Sentiment.

I decided to use a stencil to create an Argyl pattern on my card but once the orange ink was applied, I changed my mind and added green ink without adding the additional Argyl lines so it looks more Harlequin than Argyl. Then the stenciled panel was cut into two pieces. Onto a panel of green cardstock, a white panel followed by an inked panel in Pumpkin Pie were added. Then I added the stenciled strip, matted in Parakeet Party. 

The sentiment was die cut from gold glimmer paper, shadowed by vellum. The four-leafed clover was created by stamping a small heart four times, fussy-cutting the image, and adding a stem. The clover was popped up with foam tape. Gold metallic pearls were added. The inside of the card was decorated with the second strip of stenciling.

  1. That strip you stenciled looks great, those are great ideas for some different uses of a stencil! Fantastic card!

  2. Love the offset panels wth the sparkly gold sentiment :)

  3. Like how your stenciled plaid came out and the vellum used for the sentiment so to not hide the plaid. You got quite a few of the elements in your pretty card.

  4. I love the bright sparkly good luck! Very cute card for the challenge :)
