For the love of green.

Green is not my color of choice for crafting, usually.  I'm stepping out of my comfort zone for CSS group post day, to bring you a little leprechaun magic:

for the love of green.

I used CSS glamazon green cardstock, the apothecary set, and the little shamrock sugar cookies to fill 'er up.  (true story: when I try my hand at a simpler card, I usually reach for a fleckled paper - at least there's some interest there, in my mind - instead of plain white cardstock.... hee.)

I cut into my focal mat with the apothecary jar die, and then propped it up in the same spot.  My favorite touch?  The gold luster dust I used on my stamped sugar cookies (you know, the stuff you use to glimmer up real sugar cookies!)

for the love of green.

More green on the blogs today:  Audrey Lori Tracy CSS blog

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!


  1. This is so pretty! I love the added bit of gold!

  2. every thing you make has the finishing touch of perfection! seriously! your card is amazing! LOVE the popped up die over where it was cut! and the detail on those shamrock sugar cookies - LOVE LOVE that gold dust!!!! it seems you and green get along just fine after all!
    my crafting kryptonite is purple!! i can't make it work! LOL!

  3. I do the same thing with flecked paper - for the same reason!

    I love the idea of popping up your die cut to have the green base peeking through - good idea! And now I have a new use for that luster dust that's been hanging around from my wedding cake 7 years ago...

  4. The touch of gold is perfection, really nice!
