Hi there, Core fans! Vivian Keh here with a bit of St. Patrick’s Day inspiration for you. My roots are Korean, and so I’ve not been one to celebrate this day much in the past. But the little I do know of Irish culture is fascinating to me and I wish I knew more. At the very least, I know that the clover is significant. In the garden, whenever I find clover growing anywhere, four leaved or not, there are always lots of earthworms in the soil just beneath, which is true good fortune for this devoted gardener. I may even steal a few of the “brown gold” makers from this spot and place them in areas where the soil really needs their good work!
Today I have a card for you that uses Core’dinations Cardstock from a few of my beloved collections.
For my focal image, I used a green hue from the Core’dinations “Vintage Collection” to die-cut these delicate clovers on my Silhouette, using file #32596 by Patty Young Designs. For a soft background, I used our Tim Holtz “Shattered” Kraft Core Collection.
Personally, I adore greens and purples together, so I set the focal image atop a purple banner piece cut from our Tim Holtz Nostalgic Kraft Core Collection. There is a beautiful muted green hue that’s already pre-embossed in our Basic Grey “Ornate” Collection which I used for my background piece, sanding to reveal the pretty doily shapes.
