Lucky me!

Welcome to another Cameo Creations Challenge!  Our theme in the next two weeks is anything to do with St. Patrick’s and using buttons.  Be creative and link up with us. 

For my DT inspiration, I created a 5 1/2  square card using a purchased clovers card base by Daniela Angelova (Design ID #38829).  I imported a digi image by Polly Craft onto the Silhouette Store and sized it to fit inside a rectangular layer.  The sentiment was written in Abbeyline and Creampuff fonts, flood-filled with my choice of color before I sent them to print in my printer.  I also used the internal offset feature on the Silhouette Studio to faux stitch for me.  Then I colored the digi image with Promarkers.

I used a stitch embossing folder for the little strip on the right side of the card (one of 5 mini Just My Type CB folder) to go with the faux stitching, then added my buttons.

I used the same faux stitching technique for the inside layer of the card.  The shamrock on the left side is one of 5 clover shamrock set by Lori Whitlock (Design ID #38917). Because I was feeling lazy Winking smile, I flood-filled the shamrock with green and just used it as a print only image. 

Hope I have inspired you to create something for St. Patrick’s using buttons.  I can’t wait what you link up with us at the Cameo Creations Challenge.
