25 Days of Christmas Crafting Fun – Day 6

Top of the mornin’ to ye!  As you may have guessed, the theme for today is shamrocks!  I used the top hat icon from page 31 in A Child’s Year to make these bookmarks for my co-workers.  (A little early, yes, but they’ll keep!  I wanted to play along!)

I used my gypsy to weld a top hat to one of the rectangles from the card feature on the same cartridge.  On this cut, I hid the shamrock and hat band.  I cut a second top hat the same size as the first and glued that to the bookmark.  In Microsoft word, I created a text box the size I wanted for the bookmark.  Using PC Shamrock font, I typed Erin go Bragh, which means Ireland Forever! and made the outline green with a thickness of 12.  Not to let the little shamrock go to waste, I glued that to the bottom of the bookmark!

The free file today over at Paper Crafting World is this really cute digital stamp!

I love the vibrant colors on this bear’s outfit, the hopeful look in his eye, and his adorable “bouquet” of a four-leaf clover.  I hope he wins over his lass’ heart!
