For today's card, I thought it would be fun to make a cute "Good Luck" card featuring a few stamps and dies from Pretty Pink Posh, Lawn Fawn and Mama Elephant.

My Lucky Charms by Lawn Fawn

I started by die cutting a piece of white cardstock using the "Stitched Film Strip Die" from Pretty Pink Posh. I inked up the inner rectangles using Mama Elephant Pigment Inks (Lemon Grass, Mojito, Winter, Ocean, Buttercup, Orangeade). I stamped and colored the little fox from the "Up and Away" set by Mama Elephant and the clovers from "My Lucky Charm" and "Hats Off To You" by Lawn Fawn using Copic Markers and then cut them out using the coordinating dies. I used my craft knife to cut a small slit into the fox's hand and tucked the smaller clover into his hand.

Fox: W0, W2, R01, YR14, YR16, YR18
Clovers:YG13, YG17

I then stamped the sentiment directly onto a piece of acetate using Staz On black ink. I adhered the stamped images onto the acetate as well. I die cut the film strip again out of white craft foam and filled the shaker portion with "Marshmallow" seed beads from Pretty Pink Posh. I then mounted my shaker portion onto a piece of pattern paper from the Echo Park "Simple Life" 6x6 paper pack. To add stitching to the edges of the background, I used the straight stitched border from the "Stitched Borders 2 Dies" by Pretty Pink Posh. I used a stitched scalloped die to die cut the edges of a white cardbase. To finish the card, I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins and some "Twisted Lime" Trendy Twine.

Pretty Pink Posh Sequins: 4mm Marshmallow, 6mm Marshmallow, 4mm Shamrock
