Lucky Leprechaun

When I came across this cute little Hippo juggling shamrocks I just new I had to use him for a project. This is a print and cut image that I found in the Silhouette store. I used him at his default size which was about 5". For my card I started with white card stock cut and scored to may a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" portrait style card. Next I cut a green mat at 4 1/8" X 5 3/8". The white mat is cut at 3 3/4" 5 1/4". I wanted the sides of the green mat to show a bit more to help frame my image. I ran the white mat through my eBosser and embossed it with an Anna Griffin Circle of Gold embossing folder.  When I did the embossing I left about a 1/2" at the bottom end out of the folder so it would give me a smooth place to stamp my sentiment. I just love the look of the embossing on the white card stock. The embossing folder is a special order fold and isn't stocked in the store. There are several Cuttlebug Embossing folders that are carried in the store. I used my ATG gun to adhere the mat layers together. I used some foam squares to add my hippo to the front of my card and some Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive to add the little shamrocks. Finally I stamped my sentiment with some Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.
