St. Patrick's Day Heart Shamrock






This is a card design I have done before, once in red for Valentine's and once in blue to simulate a Pennsylvania Dutch tile. This one is for St. Patrick's Day. I like the way the design makes a cross if you look at the blank spots that come together into the center. Any heart stamp will work to make a shamrock, try it out.
I'm Irish all of the time but everyone can be on March 17th!
Always stamps in Garden Green with a build-a-brad center. Easily done with the stamp-a-ma-irish-jig.

Oh hahaha....it took a bit to "see" the cross, but once I did, the hearts went away. Rather like an optical illusion!
