St. Paddy's Card

Happy Sunday Morning, get a cup of something and please join me for a little visit. Here's another St. Pat's card - and I think I'm nearly finished with those I want to have ready to send. I was pleased with this one, but then as I was taking the photo - guess what? I realized I had the front adhered the wrong way.. card opening is on the wrong side! Oh well, I can fix that...slice it off, adhere to another cardbase. Then I realized I had the tiny shamrock design paper going wrong way...I could fix that too, but if I remove the sentiment, that may leave a spot. So once this goes onto another cardbase, it is what it IS!

- oval ellipse is from the center of yesterday's card - (a snippet!) C/bug Ellegant Ellipse EF

- design papers from stash - several years ago, but I still like them. Didn't buy any new St. Pat's papers this year

- green trim hiding join of the 2 papers was a snippet, embossed with Quik Kutz Swirls

- shamrocks were diecut with Impression Obsession Shamrock die, on a snippet of Sookwang (sticky paper) left from this project. The leftovers were just the right size to diecut the shamrocks, then I used Ritz Glitter (in a green color) to dust over the surface, burnished, adhered down.

- sentiment computer generated with a Celtic font downloaded from Dafonts, printed in green ink
diecut with S/Binder Labels Trio, sponged with DI Peeled Paint.

This was an easy card to put together...too bad I screwed it up so badly!!! I still like it though. Now it's time to perhaps make a few Easter cards, and oh yes, there's Rudolph Day to get one made & entered.


  1. Hi Mary, this made me giggle we have all done it built it up and right at the end realise the opening is on the left. It would however be ok for a left handed irish friend:) Hugs Mo

  2. Great St. Paddy Day's card! Love the DP and all that green on here. It came out great!
    You sound like me making a card - wish I had a dollar for every time I had to pull something off and re-do it!

  3. Hi Mary,

    Oh you crack me up! Now, none of us would have known had you not said something! The card came out perfect; that's what handmade is all about!!!

    Hoping you are having a wonderful weekend.


  4. Don't cut it up...add some sort of a beer mug and funny saying about one too many...says this Irish girl!
    I'm off to have a catch up...I have been remiss visiting. We had 2 sunny days and got a little bit of gardening done. Now we are sore and tired...teehee...that's getting older for you...and all I did was sit on a stool and prune some shrubs!

  5. So many beautiful cards since my last visit! Great work, Mary! Hugs

  6. Hi Mary, I love your St Patrick day card. Thank-you so much for your lovely commemts on my blog, I have now returned the compliment and joined your blog as a follower. We will be 55 years married in July and I still wonder where the years went. Enjoy your Day. Hugs from Scotland. Rita xxxx

  7. You've done some beautiful St. Patrick's Day cards, Mary! I love all the green. I think we've all put our cards together wrong way to. Isn't it usually the simple ones that cause that very problem!

  8. What a sweet St. Patty's day card Mary! Love those fabulous papers you have used and love that embossed oval with the shamrocks! Hugs!!
