Top 'o the Morning to You

Time for a St. Patrick's Day card.

 My selection of St. Patrick's Day supplies is very limited so I got out some die cuts, embossing folders, ribbons, stickers, glue pen and glitter.

Inside of card with a CG verse.

The shamrock was created using a Kindness Flower Die Set from Sweet 'n Sassy. The white flower on the left is directly from the die. The left shows the part that was cut away to make the shamrocks. Love dies that have multiple uses!! There are four different size dies in this set which can be used to make wonderfully layered flowers (there is also a matching stamp set). After each shamrock was cut, they were placed into embossing folders to get a variety of textures.

Last month at our Lilac Inkers meeting, Cathy was our wonderful hostess. She designed a card, made kits with all the necessary pieces for the card and 'voila' we just had to stamp and assemble!! Sharing time making cards with friends who love card making is so much fun!! Especially when most of the work is done for us. I thought I would "CASE" her card for my St. Patrick's Day card. So here is the lovely card she created for us.

As usual...I rotated the orientation.

This card is being submitted to these challenges:
  Fun 'n Flair - texture
  Sweet 'n Sassy SNSDC95 - go green
  Clearly iStamp #70 - die cuts

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

These are CUTE! Of course you know I love the little polka dotty ones! And wouldn't be a Marie card if the sketch hadn't been rotated LOL!!! Hope you're enjoying a lovely day ;)

How clever to use the flower dies to create your shamrocks!!! Well played!
Thanks for sharing that tip, and for joining in this week's "Go Green" challenge at Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenges. I hope you'll join us again next week!

That is a super clever way to do it! I too have limited St. Pat's "stuff" but make a few cards every year :) That heart card is totally stunning, by the way - and having someone do all the painstaking prep work? I'd even share wine with her! :)
