Hey Crafty Friends-

I don't know about you but I am getting so excited for the month of March! St. Patrick's Day is one of my favorite holidays so I couldn't wait to start my "green" crafts. I know it's not quite March 1st yet but I'm ready so lets get it started!

The card base is white glitter cardstock cut to 4.5" x 9" and folded in half to make a 4.5" square card. The corners were rounded and the edges were inked with Tim Holtz Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink. The green layer was cut on my Cricut using the Paper Lace cartridge. I cut the Lace 2 layer on pg. 30 of the handbook at 3.75" and glued it to the white base. To create the mug I used the Love You Latte Cricut cartridge and cut the mug from kraft cardstock at 2.25". I inked the edges with brown chalk ink, stamped the clover in green, used diamond stickles on the top to simulate the beverage, and adhered a green Trendy Twine bow to the handle. The mug was popped up on foam dots for a little dimension. The Cheers banner is a 3.5"x .5" strip of white paper. The edges are inked in brown, the end is "v" cut to create the banner shape, and the word Cheers from My Creative Time, You're My Pot of Gold stamp set is stamped in green. The banner is glued down and embellished with an orange button, topped with a clear gem.
There you have it friends! My cute, simple St. Patrick's Day cards. I hope you love it as much as I do. Please come back again soon for more inspiration!
Have a great crafty day!

Hey Crafty Friends-

Well after three weeks of on and off sicky kiddos in my house, I finally got some crafting done!
