St. Patrick's Day Slimline Card


Hello! I am excited to share my first card using the NEW RELEASE at Your Next Stamp! The Design Team is sharing sneak peaks until Thursday, when the release goes live in the Your Next Stamp online store. We will be celebrating on Thursday with an Instagram Hop. As usual with a YNS release, you have a chance to win a prize and I have more details at the end of my post.

My card today is a Slimline for St. Patrick's Day and I used the new 3D Alphabet and Numbers for the LUCKY on the card front. After white embossing the letters I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and added them to the smallest stitched rectangle in the new Slim Stitched Rectangle Dies. I also added lots of shimmer to the letters with a Wink of Stella pen.

I have wanted to try this 'off set circle' technique that was very popular on social media at the end of last year so this seemed a good time to see if I liked it. And I do! I don't know the 'proper' name for the technique but if I use it again I will try to find out what it is.

Inside I used two more of the new Slim Stitched Rectangle dies, stencilling the green one with green ink and a stencil from STAMPlorations.  Check out the stencilled shamrock inside. I made that by being mindful of where I placed the small heart die to cut out the three green card stock hearts I used on the card front. 


Now for the prize information.  Each preview day, comments left on the Your Next Stamp Blog and Your Next Stamp Instagram will be selected to win one of the sets being showcased! Winners will be announced the day after each preview day.
