Have a Lucky Day!

Pin It
 Here's a fun St. Patty's Day card for you!  Actually, you could send this anytime someone had something good happen to them.

I can't believe how fast March is flying by and the holidays are just stacked up against one another.  Two weeks until Easter!  YIKES!
I love this fun Leprechaun from the Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge.  If you are a fan of the Create a Critter cartridge, I suggest you check out Simply Charmed because it's got lots of cute images and sayings.  LOVE IT!

- Leprechaun - From Cricut Simply Charmed Cartridge cut at 3.5"
- "Lucky Day" - From the Cricut Stamping Cartridge cut at 1.25"
- Scalloped Circle card - From Cricut Life's A Party cartridge cut at 5.5"
- Inner yellow Circle - From Cricut Plantin' Schoolbook Cartridge cut at 5"
I tried to get this side view so that you could see that the dark green is actually glitter paper. I also used some Stickles on the buckle and coat.  My friend Lisa LOVES Stickles and has shown me the light of how much they can enhance a project.  This one's for you, Lisa!

I admit that I messed up the gold Stickle section by getting it inside the buckle part.  So, after I tried to scrape it off, which didn't work, I pulled out my black Stickles and put a big glob in the center so it looked good again.

Do you use Stickles?

    I like stickles okay. Then I started making cards for Operation Write Home and any sort of glitter is a big NO NO so I tend to forget about stickles for my personal projects.

  6. That's so cute! I agree with you that Simply Charmed is a great cartridge. Yes, I like to use Stickles, although I'll admit I often don't because I'm running behind and don't have time to let my project dry. Thanks for sharing your adorable card!

  7. Hi, I like the card you made for St. Patrick Day it is so cute. But I don't have any of them cartridge so guess I will have to try something else for that holiday. Thank you for sharing.
