***  The Trix  ***

*  One way to keep a card Clean And Simple, is to keep the colours simple - Granny Apple Green, Black & White, and repeat the colours in the sentiment and embellishments for continuity. 

*  Stamp the shamrocks from the Lucky Clover Stamp Set, #160610 on a 4 x 5 1/4 Basic White card base and adhere it to a 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 layer of Granny Apple Green cardstock before adhering it to the Basic Black card base.

*  Fussy cut the sentiment stamp to keep just the words you need.  Then pop up the words on dimensionals.  Embellish with Classic Matte Dots, #158146.
