We Create Subtles Collection Blog Hop

Welcome to March's Blog Hop with the We Create Design Team! Our theme is "Subtles" which includes any of the colors in the Stampin' Up! Subtle Collection Palette.  I'm using the stamp set, Amazing Life from the 2019 Occasions Catalog. There are eight stops along the way, so be sure to read all the way to the bottom and click the NEXT button to visit Tricia's blog, Tricia's Stamping Creations.  Introducing the subtle collection:
My subtle color combo includes Pear Pizzazz, Mint Macaron and Soft Sea Foam. I colored in the word LUCK using those three colors with Stampin' Write Markers then added Wink of Stella for shimmer. 

This fun fold is very easy to put together. The base is just two pieces of Pear Pizzazz. The longer piece is folded in half and glued on top of the left side of the card base.
I used accent pieces in black and white from the Botanical Butterfly DSP. You can get this paper free during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 purchase. The squares were cut from the Layering Squares stitched framelits. The flowers, which remind me of a clover field, were cut out with the Lovely Flowers Edgelits dies. The shamrock on the front was created with three hearts from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits dies. 
I took the same design from the Good Luck embellishment and made it a bit smaller. I created a set of four notecards using the Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. These cards measure 5" x 3-1/4". A standard card is 5-1/2" x 4-1/4". 
I used the little heart from the Dog Builder Punch to create the three leaf clover in the top left corner of the embellishment.  The envelope flap was stamped with the clover from the Amazing Life set in Pear Pizzazz.
I decorated the inside of the cards with sentiments from the Amazing Life stamp set and strips of Botanical Butterfly DSP. Four of these little notecards and four envelopes fit inside this custom box. I got the idea from my friend Sharlene Luciano's blog. Click HERE for her blog post and measurements for the box.
