I had a request for a Saint Patrick’s day card idea. After looking thru the catalog and not coming up with much I decided I’d give the Pansy Punch a try at making a Shamrock.
Here’s the card I came up with:
I think it turned out pretty cute. The customer was happy so I’m happy.
To create the Shamrock I used the Pansy Punch #130698 $15.95.
Here is the video:
The Whisper White circle is the 2 1/2″ Circle punch #120906 $16.95. After adhering the “Shamrock” to the circle I ran it through the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dots folder #117335 $7.95.
The Gumball Green Mat behind the circle was made using the Starburst Framelits Dies #132967 $26.95 and the Big Shot.
The Gumball Green DSP is from the 2012/2104 Designer Series Paper Stacks #130137 $21.95.
The “Cheers” is from the Happy Hour stamp set #132013 $29.95 or #126642 $21.95. It was stamped using Gumball Green ink and matted onto a piece of Gumball Green card stock. The ends were punched using the Hexagon Punch.
Here is the card with the Whisper White background plain.
Which to you prefer the white background run thru the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dots or Plain?
I can’t decide.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

What a good eye! Never would have thought to use the Pansy punch for a Shamrock. Very cute card.
How cool is that! I have used the Pansy Punch for a Shamrock before, and for the stem, I used the Bird Build Punch for stem – it’s a different look, but cute. However, I just love your idea in creating this Shamrock – I’m just gonna have to put it in my technique book. Oh, and yes, I will be making this card as well. So cute and clever – thank you again. 🙂
