I made the sentiment with Snidely (you may remember this sentiment from my Friday the 13th Valentine) and printed it in a dark green on a light green paper. I printed the Shamrock Bouquet onto a bright green paper and colored it with Copic markerss. I used foam tape to pop up a section of the image. I cut each piece with a Spellbinders/Nestabilities die and used that same die as a stencil for the matching matte. The mattes are cut with the same paper as its top piece, but inked with key lime VersaMagic chalk ink and edged with a green Copic. The tops are also popped up with foam tape.
The backing piece is a Core'Dinations cardstock that I sanded a bit to reveal the lighter-green core. It was difficult to leave so much open space, but I felt that the design was stronger without more embellishment. The card base is a green cardstock, so I added a white message section inside.
