Easy St. Patrick's Day Card

Do you want to bring the luck of the Irish to your loved ones? If so, there are ten days until the holiday, so you have time to make this card (even multiples of it!) and get them out in the mail really quickly.

I used the recently retired Sunshine and Rainbows Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!s January-February Sale-a-bration promotion, but you can use anything you have and like!

I was inspired by Laura's Craft Cottage idea for her St. Patrick's Day card.

How to create this card:

Garden Green cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11", score at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2" to create the "Z" fold

Retired Sunshine and Rainbows Designer Series Paper - cut three pieces 2-1/2" x 4"

Basic White cardstock - cut one piece 3" x 4" 
Adhere the Basic White to the inner back first, then add the rainbow paper to make sure the edges all have a 1/8" border

With the retired Full Heart Punch, punch three hearts from Garden Green cardstock. Make your own stem by fussy cutting a slightly curved piece like in the photo above.  Assemble the clover in place on the card front using dimensionals to raise up the leaves. Add some adhesive iridescent sequins for a little bling!

For the Oval tag, start with a small piece of Basic White cardstock and stamp in Garden Green ink the greeting from the very retired Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. Then punch out the plain oval with the Double Oval Punch. With a small piece of Granny Apple Green punch out the scalloped oval with the same punch, and attach the two together. Raise the finished tag up on dimensionals as shown in the photo.

Finish your envelope flap with a piece of 2-3/8" x 6" matching designer series paper, adhere, and with paper snips trim off the excess.  All done!

I hope this card brings you lots of luck on St. Patrick's Day!
