If you are wearing green and celebrating St. Patrick’s Day today, here is a fun St. Patrick’s Day card idea. This is a card I had a little bit of a hard time getting it to come out like I had it in my head, but then it all came together! I think the stamped rainbow in the background really pulled it all together, and now I love the card!
Do you notice one of my favorite tools on the card? It’s the Owl Builder Punch to make a St. Patrick’s Day owl! I punched the owl out of Crumb Cake Cardstock and dressed him in a vest punched from Emerald Envy Cardstock. I had tried various designer papers, but finally decided on plain green with a Gold Glimmer Heart. The owl’s hat is made from the Sale-A-Bration freebie, the 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack (143831).
The card base is Whisper White with a layer of designer paper from the Party Animal Designer Series Paper package. The smaller Whisper White center panel is 3″ x 4 1/4″. The rainbow is stamped with an image in the Work of Art Stamp Set. You can use whatever colors you like. I chose Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Emerald Envy and Pumpkin Pie inks. I did stamp off a little bit before stamping on the card. The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. The words are die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and layered on piece of Emerald Envy cut with the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.
You can use the St. Patrick’s Day Owl on a candy treat or little gift bag if you are doing something special today for someone. Or just make a pot of gold and stamp a greeting! So many fun choices when you are a stamper!

Remember, Sale-A-Bration comes to an end on March 31 which is starting to get closer and closer so don’t delay! If you want this fun Glimmer Paper Pack I mentioned earlier, check out the new release SAB brochure.
