Just when I thought I might not do a St. Patricks Day card this year, this idea popped (or “hopped”) in my head! I couldn’t wait to have my frog friend juggle shamrocks! Isn’t he fun?

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:
Start with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base of Granny Apple Green card stock.
Adhere a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Call Me Clover card stock to the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Use the Big Shot and Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies to crop the following sizes (approximate) of Whisper White card stock: approx. 3 3/8 x 4 3/4 and 2 1/4 x 3 1/2. Adhere the larger die-cut to the Call Me Clover layer with Snail Adhesive.
Cut a piece of Call Me Clover card stock to 3 1/4 x 1 1/4. Flag the end with the Banner Triple Punch. Wrap with the Lemon Lime Twist Organdy Ribbon (estimated back in stock March 4) securing with a bow as shown. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Adhere the 2nd Rectangle Stitched die-cut to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Use the Stamparatus to stamp the frog and “have a lucky day” sentiment (Itty Bitty Greetings) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White card stock.
Use the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, and coordinating Hop Around Framelits Die to crop the frog. Color the frog with Light and Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. Color the unicycle with Light and Dark Call Me Clover Stampin’ Blends.
Crop the sentiment with a 1″ Circle Punch and adhere to a 1 1/8″ Scalloped Circle Punch of Call Me Clover card stock with Snail Adhesive. Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Use the Big Shot and Be Mine Framelits Die to crop nine of the smallest hearts in Call Me Clover card stock. Assemble and adhere as shown to a 1/4″ circle (covering the circle) to create the shamrocks. Snip the “stems” from the heart border created with the same die and adhere. Adhere the shamrocks with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card as shown.
Use the Big Shot and Beautiful Layers envelope liner die to crop a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Gingham 6 × 6 Designer Series Paper (back in stock)! Cut to 1 3/4 high and adhere with Snail Adhesive. Here’s a quick video demonstration with more tips on using the Beautiful Layers Dies.
