The new theme for the Cut It Up challenge is about Clovers!  Create a project with a clover and don't forget your die cuts!!    

I started by printing the digiYou're My Lucky Charm, onto a Clover from Cricut Thought & Phrases - Good Times and cut it in Design Space.  I Copic colored that adorable guy and added a little silver gel pen to the buckle and a few dots of white gel pen to his eyes.  

 The shamrock embellishment was cut from Cricut Saint Patrick's Day Icons and a gem tops it off!  

Materials used:
Kitten Scraps Image and Sentiment:  You're My Lucky Charm 
Clover Die cut  and Shamrock Die cut
Copic Markers
Gel Pens
Papers from Polkadoodles (polkadot and stripe)
Paper from Whimsy (background)

  1. Your card is super cute, Katrina! I love that your elephant is on a shamrock-shaped mat. Simple, but I wouldn't have thought of it. You're so creative! 💕


  2. OMGosh... Your card is so dang CUTE! I love that adorable elephant and the fun pattern papers!

  4. Love your card, great paper choice and that adorable elephant rocks!

  5. Fun and gorgeous - I've never thought of an elephant as a lucky charm before. Thank you for sharing at Cardz 4 Guyz.

  6. Katrina, so glad you joined us this week...your elephant is so adorable, great coloring and nice selection of the background papers. Four leaf clovers are magical...there were many days my sisters and I would look for them in the green grass and it always seemed my sister found the 4-leaf clover first. I think she may have waxed one and stuffed in her pocket to pull out when we were looking for them.

  7. A great card - thanks for sharing it with us at Cardz 4 Guyz.

  8. Sweet card! Although a traditional shamrock has three leaves, who doesn't get excited to find a clover with four leaves! Your coloring is wonderful and the background papers work perfectly. Thank you for sharing with us Double Trouble Challenge #22.
