Out of My Control

Three St. Patrick Day cards?!  I have never made that many before.  But the receptionist at my chiropractor's office loves S.t Patty's Day and when I saw the Verve Irish coffee set,  I didn't have any choice! I had to make another card.  LOL

I used the sketch at Die Cuttin Divas :
The embossing folder is a new one from the Crop Stop.  In fact, it is one that I won.  Just had to use it  - succumbing to another impulse.
The circle is cut out with a Die-namics Circle.  The sentiment is cut with a Spellbinder tag.
I didn't think I would ever run out of brads, but I am down to these large ones.  Because they don't flatten out as much as the little ones, I added some dimension tape on the back of the white panel.  The cup is also popped up with  tape and I put the tape behind the 4 leave clover too.

  5. Marsha, How sweet of you to make a card for the receptionist. I'm sure she's going to love it. Speaking of love, I love your interpretation of the sketch... and I'm always looking for new ways to use washi tape. I have quite a few rolls, but never know what to do with them. LOL But I digress. Your card is too cute, and we are so glad that you played along with us at Words 2 Craft By. :)
