A Shamrock for You!

Good morning blogger friends!

I'm up on the Tutti Designs Blog today sharing St. Patrick's Day inspiration using the Nesting Stitched Heart to create a shamrock for you! I've also used the Nesting Stitched Banner and Nesting Stitched Tag dies on this card.  These versatile collections are all available in the Tutti Designs Store.

I'm a wee bit Irish on both parents side.  My genealogy research reveals a great, great, great grandfather that was born in Ireland many, many years ago, when it was still part of Great Britain.  Green is my favorite color's reminds me of spring and everything new after the long winter.  So, it was refreshing to create this St. Patrick's Day card!

'Three Wishes"

The Nesting Stitched Heart die worked perfectly to create the dimensional shamrock that is the focal point of this card. 

I cut 9 medium sized hearts using the Nesting Stitched Hearts and scored them down the center.  I made smaller ones too, in case I decided to add more shamrocks.

Each petal consists of 3 hearts adhered together to create the shamrock.

Here's a close up of the 3-D shamrock along with the sentiment that I printed, cut, and matted using the Nesting Stitched Tag.  I cut several of the Nesting Stitched Banners in different colors to tuck between the layers and under the sentiment tag.  Instead of making smaller shamrocks, I used 3 of the hearts as the top layer for the larger hearts on the shamrock.

Finished 3-D Shamrock card.
