Green happens to be my dad's favorite color as well, so I decided to take advantage of this by making him a St. Patrick's Day card:
- white card stock
- card stock scrap
- shamrock shapes cut from paint chip sample (leaves) and card stock scrap (stems)
- shamrock shape stamped in green ink onto scrap of vintage time card (time card chosen because of its green stripes)
- "Happy Saint Patrick's Day!" lettered in black ink

This card was easy to do, although I found that cutting out small pieces of paint chips was a bit of a pain.
I got the idea for making shamrocks from paint chips from this site. Hers look more elegant, but I think mine turned out okay - and the part of the chip I used was a green whose name actually is "Shamrock". Can't get more appropriate than that for a St. Patrick's Day card!
