Hey guys! St Patrick's Day is right around the corner (March 17th) so ... I thought I'd make some colorful cards for the upcoming holiday. This is a day where people honor their Irish heritage, culture and traditions. People celebrate by wearing green, going to church and drinking Irish whiskey, beer, or cider with friends. And cities all over the US typically celebrate with parades and festivities.
So wouldn't it be a fun project to make these cards and then ... even nicer to give them away?! If you have pictures from a past St Patty's Day celebration, add one or two inside the card. What a nice way to brighten someone's day.
I used Doodlebug's Lots O' Luck Collection and Petite Prints for this project. I'm loving the bright colors, cute leprechauns and pots of gold!
For the first card, I used black cardstock to make the card. I thought it made the die cuts and that amazing plaid paper (called Pot O' Gold) look so vibrant. I added the embellishments from the Lot's O' Luck Odds and Ends and used some foam squares behind the pot of gold to give it dimension. The orange clover and mushroom are from Doodlebug's Happy Go Lucky Collection. Yep ... I'm mixin' and matchin, lol!
I used white cardstock to make the second card. I layered a strip of Doodlebug's petite print linen in bumblebee along the top half and a strip from the 12x12 print called Bonnie Lass (sold HERE) along the bottom half. The cute saying bubbles are from the odds and ends. And the 12x12 clover paper in the background is called Lucky Clovers from the Happy Go Lucky Collection.
Thanks for stopping by and have fun making these handmade cards!
