This week at Jitterbuggin' the challenge is "It's Not Easy Being Green". Sherri asked us to follow the sketch, use green and add a Cricut cut. I love this sketch that Sherri designed for this week's challenge. I was able to play this evening after work and I am sharing my card with you. I have been so busy that this is my first St. Patrick's Day card this year. Yay me! I am ahead for next year!!
The card is 5 inch square using a yellow textured cardstock from Colorbok. I cut the pretty clover-patterned paper at 4 3/4 inches. For the corners, I cut two 1 1/4" squares from the green and two 1 1/2" squares from the lavender and then each square was cut diagonally. Fiskars Scalloped paper edgers was used on the lavender pieces. For my Cricut cut, I used A Child's Year cartridge and cut the little girl with the clover at 2 1/2 inches. She is on page 31. Also the shadow feature at the same size was cut from the lavendar paper. I cut the girl again from the green paper and trimmed the clover off to be used in the little girl's hand. The green mat is cut at 3 1/4" and the yellow is 3 1/8". Cuttlebug Swiss Dots is used on the yellow mat. The little girl is pop-dotted on the mats. Corner pieces on the mats were cut using a EK punch. Lots of inking, white pearls for a little more accent, and the purple ribbon with gold threads complete the look!
