Irish Blessing

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Today is the day that everyone has a wee bit of Irish in them 😀.  I have one more St. Patrick's Day card to share with you today called Irish Blessings from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

One of the fun things about this card is that it contains a hidden message tag:

I started out by stamping the image with VersaMark and then heat setting it with Coffee embossing powder.  Prismacolored pencils and Koh-I-Noor colored pencils were used to color the image.  The shamrocks and the inside of the lucky horseshoes have a touch of Spirited Green glitter for added bling.

The die cut is from Tonic Studios that I altered.  It's called It's The Little Things Flip Flop die set, but I cut off the flip part and used the main portion of the die.  I die cut this from cream colored cardstock and applied Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (Spring Green) to it with my fingertip.  This set also comes with the cut out frame, which I heat embossed with Irish Spring embossing powder.

The hidden message was stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with Black Detail embossing powder.  I distressed the edges using a Versamarker embossing pen and heat set more Irish Spring embossing powder.  The tag was also covered with Spring Green Nuvo Mousse.

The pattered cardstock is digi paper from Echo Park (St. Patrick's Day Mini theme).

This is one of the other sentiment that comes with the Irish Blessings stamp set.  Although I did not incorporate it in my card today, it is one of my favorite Irish quotes and it is my wish for you today.
