Irish Birdie

It's the third Tuesday of the month, and that means Doodle Pantry is having another release day...with .svg cut files in addition to a few new digi sets.

I am using a brand new .svg cut file set called Four Leaf Clover SVG and an older digital set called Irish Birdie. I chose to do the four leaf clover frame. There are 4 layers to this frame and I attached them all to a white card stock base. I pulled the birdie into my Silhouette and traced, print and cut the pre-colored image. I cut all 4 layers using black, lime green and a darker green card stock. (See the post below this one to find out what I did with all the middles from the frame.) The sentiment is from the Irish Birdie set and was printed on white card stock and layered onto black card stock and popped-up in the corner. I added 2 different sizes of green gemstones into the hearts of the clover. This was a super fun and quick card to make and Laurie's .svg cut files cut like a dream. Here is what you get in the sets.

Don't forget...there is still time to join us on the Doodle Pantry Blog for this month's Ants in my Pantry Digital Challenge 2 for your chance to win a gift certificate to the Doodle Pantry store. The theme this month is CANDY. It is a digital challenge, but we also accept hand-stamped images as well. So come have some FUN!

One of the new sets being released this week is called Funky Sock Monkey. Laurie has added this set to her OWH category. That means that $1.00 from each sale will be donated to Operation Write Home. Here is a link to see the other sets she has included in the OWH category. Here is what you will get in that set.
