A Little Luck

Hello all,

Connor and I survived last week.  He started feeling better last Wednesday.  I however, started feeling really worn out.  We were both glad to see the weekend.  We both took a nap or two...and we are starting to feel like real people again.

To celebrate our transition into March, here is a St. Patrick's Day card.  Hope this bring a little luck to your day!  I tried something a little different on the edge of the white Card Stock.  I used my Versamark stamp pad to wipe ink on the edges and then embossed them with gold powder.  I love this technique.   The only thing to keep in mind is that you don't get a whole lot of control over where the powder sticks.  Some places it is thin...other's thick.   Each card is truly unique.  

I added some gold embossing powder to the edge of the card stock

  1. hi Chris, love all the details in his face and this is the first time i've seen this embossing technique I want to try it!!! awesome card. hope your feeling better :)

  2. Beautiful coloring and I love that gold edge! Super cool idea. I did it on a black card recently and it worked out fun, but your minimal look is much better than mine. Lovely card and blog.
