St. Patrick's Day Card


Today I have a wonderful little card to share with you. At the end of this post, I'll share the Cricut Cartridges and stamps I used as well as some awesome challenges!

As you can see, this is a pot of gold shaped card. I'm in LOVE with shaped  cards lately!!  


Here is the little leprechaun holding a shamrock.


Here you can see all the stitching I added with my gel pen.


I used my glue gun to attach three little green buttons.
 I think buttons add so much character to cards!


The inside details include a circle of green pattern paper and a couple of gold pieces.


Like the front, the inside got plenty of gel pen stitches.

Supplies:
generic black stock base
green card stock
green pattern paper is from Big Lots
Gold metallic paper is DCWV
Green buttons are from Michaels dollar bins
tan card stock
white crafting string / twine
Gelly Roller white gel pen
Scotch Quick Dry Glue
ATG glue runner
pop dots
inside sentiment CTMH: Seasonal Celebrations
face stamp is Sizzix Dress up faces

Cricut Cartridges used:
Pot of Gold / Cauldren from Paper Doll Dress Up (cut @ 4 1/4")
same cut for card base (welded and flipped with my Gypsy)
Simply Charmed for the leprechaun (cut @ 3")
A Child's Year for the shamrock (cut @ 1")
Plantin Schoolbook for the circle (cut 3")
Simply Charmed for the gold pieces (cut @ 4 1/4")

Challenges:
Use at least one button
Must have green
Any kind of leaf
Must have pot of gold
