Serendipity Blog Hop Day 1 - Shamrock


The Design Team at Serendipity Stamps has a fun BLOG HOP for you over the next 3 days!
We are showing off 3 new dies for spring!  We have a Shamrock for March, a Bunny for April and a Ladybug for whenever.

Here is my first card using the new Shamrock die. I went small with this one, just 3 1/2 x 3 1/2.  The shamrock die is backed by an embossed piece with a basket weave embossing folder.  I made a matching envelope and put a Shamrock die cut on that too!



This cute sentiment stamp is the perfect finishing touch to the inside of my card.  The little hearts came from the stem of the Shamrock die.

Mariam I love the size of your beautiful shamrock card. Sweet idea to put one on the envelope you made. Now that I use the EPboard I make matching liners and I am so addicted to making them.
Beautiful card and matching envelope!

I like the working small idea. The butcher string in green and white makes a great border. Love the new shamrock die. It is so versatile.
