Watercolor St. Patty's Day Card

We've been back from vacation for almost 2 weeks now, and I'm finally getting back into my craft room. Up first: a St. Patty's Day card, because every year I send my grandparents one (they're the reason I'm Irish after all!). I decided to create a watercolor St. Patty's Day card this year.

Besides green, rainbow colors always seem to be a good choice for St. Patrick's Day. I recently got my hands on a new set of Gansai Tambi watercolor paints, so I used those to paint a rainbow watercolor background. These watercolors are worth every penny! The colors are so vibrant, they travel beautifully with water, and are so smooth.

I used a cutting file from the Silhouette Cameo for my text. First I printed the text in black ink directy on the watercolor paper. Then, I cut a few of the words from shiny gold card stock and adhered them to the card.

I thought it would be fun to mail off this card in a custom made green envelope, so I grabbed a piece of Pebbles Basics Leaf Dot patterned paper and the We R Memory Keepers 1-2-3 Punch Board to create my green envelope.

I just dropped this rainbow watercolor St. Patty's Day card in the mail today...and now I've got to get going on some birthday cards! Do you make any cards for St. Patrick's Day? What's your go to color combo for them?
