Happy St Patrick's Day

So, Joanna has been busy again!
Here is her latest creation, together with the instructions. I hope you all enjoy it and have a good St Patrick's Day.
Watch out for the Big Tools Surgery at the end of the month.
For all the Irish cardmakers – Happy St Patrick’s Day - 17 March 2009

Wow, this was so easy to make using my Cricut Design Studio and I borrowed a Paper Doll Dress Up (PPDU) Cricut cartridge as I don’t own this myself.

I found a shamrock hidden in the PPDU cartridge. It is not visible from the back of the cartridge box but can be found in the booklet. I welded and cut the shamrocks in Bazzill Bling cardstock and then cut another shamrock in the lovely Craft Creations paper available at Flutterby Crafts. I then printed my text “Happy St Patrick’s Day” using word art in Microsoft Word which was layered onto a scallop circle. I found a green button in my stash and threaded a ribbon through the holes. Finally, I added some green Kaiser gems for the bling factor.

If you don’t have the CDS the shamrock could be cut out and layered onto your base card.

Of course the shamrock idea can also be used as a Good Luck card if you change the text.

I love it when an idea comes together so quickly ……… Happy St Patrick’s Day!
