lucky in love...

Hello friends!!  Popping in with a little tag-card that I made for this week's CASology challenge:  lucky.    I don't often make cards for St. Patrick's day, but if I did this one would fit the bill perfectly!  It also works for Addicted to CAS:  Luck (thanks for letting me know Kimberly!!)

 

The tag-card was die cut using a Penny Black tag die.  Two tags were cut, one scored about 3/4 of inch from the top and adhered together.  I die cut some hearts using my PTI hearts cover plate and then stamped four with one of the designs from the PTI Happy Hearts set.  I picked the design that most closely resembled a Celtic one to me.   A strip of green patterned paper was cut to fit the tag and one edge punched, the stem was stamped and then the strip was adhered.  The hearts were adhered to make a four leaf clover.  Some green ribbon was thread through the hole and tied with black baker's twine.  The sentiment (from the Taylored Expressions Wreath of Luck) was stamped on a small banner, adhered and a black sequin added.   At the last moment I decided to add some Glossy Accents to the clover... gives it a nice shine!

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI; Patterned paper:  Stampin Up!; Stamps:  PTI and Taylored Expressions; Dies:  PTI and Penny Black; Ink:  Stampin Up! and Memento; Baker's Twine; black sequin; PTI New Leaf grosgrain ribbon
