Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! I’ve popped in today with a fun DT inspiration project for Simply Crafty SVGs using the Side by Side Box Card cut file and the shamrock from the Pot O Gold Treat Box cut file. OMG, you’da thought I was a giant kid putting this together, lol! What fun!


I used 120# kraft cardstock for the card base which makes the card pretty stable. I used a couple shades of green cardstock for the vehicle along with some ‘manly’ patterned paper that I lightly inked. I used an extra print and cut sentiment (included in the cut file) that I punched with a circle punch.


I cut several shamrocks (from the Pot O Gold Treat Box cut file) and attached them to strips of clear window sheet to load up the back of the vehicle! :D


And one final shot showing the collapsed and ready-to-mail card. So cool! ;)


Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Paper Accents 120# kraft cardstock; Stampin’ Up Basic Black, Always Artichoke, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate and Garden Green cardstock; Crafter’s Companion Just For Men patterned paper
Ink: Ranger Black Soot distress ink
Dies/Punches: Simply Crafty SVGs Side by Side Box Card and Pot O Gold Treat Box cut files; Stampin’ Up 1-1/4″ and 1-1/2″ circle punches
Accessories:  Stampin’ Up clear window sheet

** 3/8/17 Top Pick at 4 Crafty Chicks! **

Hello there, my crafty friends! Happy Friday! This week sure was a blur but I’m not complaining… it means I can get my craft on! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Craft for the Craic and I’m excited to share my guest designer project for the Green and Glittery for St. Patrick’s Day challenge! Boy, do I have a treat for you, lol! That is, if you share my sense of humor! I’ve had this hilarious Maxine cartoon in my funnies stash forever, it seems, and it sure has come in handy for this challenge!


This card was super easy to create and sure is glittery! I glammed Maxine to the hilt with a couple layers of glitter paper and clear rhinestones! :)


I kept the inside simple with just a stamped sentiment on a layered panel.
