Luck of the Irish

Hi, Friends........

I don't make very many St. Patrick's Day cards, but I had these adorable Irish die cuts that I had received in a prize a couple of years ago and wanted to use them. I teamed them up with some layered DCWV St. Paddy paper and added sequins from the pot o' gold, of course! Fun little card to get us in the Irish mood. :)


I made a matching envelope with the design outwards and cut a tag for the address place......which I placed at a jaunty angle on the front.

Supplies used include:
St. Patrick's Day embellishment assortment received in a prize
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set (scalloped background)
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set (straight edged background + tag)
Doodlebug - Mini Doilies
DCWV paper
Gold sequins from stash
WRMK Envelope Punch Board

Hope my card made you smile today. Maybe this little leprechaun will bring you good luck today on the Ides of March! :)

  1. How cute and fun!! Love that Irish guy and the embellishments, and your envelope matches perfectly the card!

  2. Great that you pulled up some die cuts in your stash which just fit what you needed. Love the scalloped frame and the design paper for both the card and envelope was cool. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and our partner Heart2Heart. Glad you enjoyed the Betty's $100 card, wait until you see her next Guestie card.

  3. Very cute, I love how you added the tag to the envelope! And all the gold coin sequins to accent your photo!

  4. Wow, look at you getting so creative with the tag die by using it on the envelope. This is an adorable card and great way to combine pre-made die cuts with extra embellishments. Love that green doily and the sequins..and I'm sure it was satisfying to use the DCWV pot of gold paper. I probably have some really old, random St. Paddy's day papers in my stash somewhere and will have to remember to make something for next year!Whether this card brings luck or not, it already brought a smile to my face!

  5. Super cute!
