St Patrick's Day Card

Happy Sunday!  I hope you're all having a fabulous weekend!  I had a great night of crafting with one of my bf's last night.  Actually, it's a grey and rainy day around here today, and since most of my household chores are already done I may spend a bit more time creating today.  Yay!  :)

The card I have to share today is a St. Patrick's Day card.  I have absolutely no Irish in me, and I've never been big into the whole St. Patrick's Day festivities, but it's hard not to want to create cards and get excited about it when there are so many fabulous images on Cricut cartridges!  My card is pretty simple, and I actually made the shamrock a little too big because I didn't leave enough room for my sentiment.  Oops.  Oh well, on the inside it went!

I'm entering this card in to the challenges over at Fantabulous Cricut and Krafty Girls.  The Fantabulous Cricut challenge this week is Luck of the Irish - create a project using a shamrock or the color green.  The challenge over at Krafty Girls is Feelin' Lucky - create a Project with a St. Patrick's Day theme.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!


Recipe:
Solid cardstock from Bazzill
Patterned cardstock from my stash
Martha Stewart Double Loops Punch Around the Page
Shamrock from Everyday Paper Dolls cut at 3.5 inches
Twine from My Craft Spot
Sentiment from My Pink Stamper's Happiest Moments set

  4. I love that paper punch! Might be the next one I get! :) I like the front without the sentiment.....you say you did it by mistake but it looks good without it. ;) Thanks for participating at Fantabulous Cricut’s Monday Challenge.
