Top 'O The Morning To You-A Few St. Patrick's Day Cards

Good Morning...Happy Friday I hope you have had a great week! Thanks for stopping by. I wasn't going to make St. Patrick's Day cards this year but my conscience got the best of me so here's what I came up with. This first one is a simple gatefold with a clasp...add a sentiment and a little greenery and you've got a card that looks like you gave it some thought when the truth of the matter is it is so simple! I will be making this type of card often. I used the Petite Oval/Scallop Nestibility to form the clasp---
 Here it is partially opened showing how the pieces fit together to keep it closed. Here is a closer look at the sentiment which is an Irish Blessing I found online---
May You Have
A World of Wishes at Your Command.
God and His Angels Close to Hand.
Friends and Family Their Love Impart,
And Irish Blessings in Your Heart!
Here's another quickie. My blogger friend Patti introduced me to Z-fold cards at Christmas and I love them...they are so quick and easy. The image is clip art I that I found on line---
Here it is opened. It forces me to finish the inside of the card while I've got the paper at hand rather than setting it aside to finish at a later time---
Here's another quick and easy card. The circle is from Scrapping Cottage. I had a heck of a time with the placement on the card base...when I took a closer look, I realized it wasn't me but the shape wasn't symmetrical, which is ok but I was trying to line it up with the pattern on the paper. The clovers are punched with Martha Stewart clover punch on Core'dination cardstock then embossed with the Cuttlebug Butterfly combo and lightly sanded---
This little St. Patrick's Day bird and sentiment is from The Doodle Pantry. You can't tell from the picture but it has a wobbler on it---
This next card is kind of in your face bright but my grandson's favorite colors are red and yellow and I'm sure he will get a kick out if it. I used the Scrapping Cottage frog die with the Irish Blessing about finding frogs in your underpants. It also has a wobbler on it. For those of you that may want to copy the is a closer look---
May The Light Always Find You
On A Dreary Day,
When You Need To Be Home,
May You Find Your Way.
May You Always Have The Courage
To Take A Chance, And Never Find
Frogs In Your Underpants.
This last one is for the twins. I found this cute little Irish boy clip art on line and thought it would be perfect for them. The background looks white but in real life it is cream color---
That's it for now...Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit. As always...If you have any questions on the recipe or the supplies I used...please feel free to email me! Til next time...enjoy your day and have a wonderful weekend!
