Card Share: St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day! What did you do to celebrate? Was there any green involved? Alexa dressed up in green — lime green, to be exact — from head to toe. She even added a green, braided hair extension to her pony tail (left over from a Halloween costume). 

In honor of the holiday, I made some cards. Although these cards were inspired by the holiday itself, they were helped along by some cupcakes I HAD to have over the weekend. I won't tell you who roped me into those, but I will tell you that the cupcakes came with adorable shamrock picks. What better way to re-use and upcycle them than to make cards, right? :)

I went through my stash and pulled out a couple of older green papers to make this first card (Little Yellow Bicycle and My Little Shoebox). I started off with the Elle's Studio calendar card and layered it all up from there.


The twine on this second card was originally tied around the first card. I didn't like the look, but rather than untie and unwrap it all, I left it as is (in a circle) and used it behind the pick. I topped the shamrock with a Little Yellow Bicycle Naturals wood button. I like how it has somewhat of a Celtic look to it.


I hope you have a great day! I'll be back tomorrow with a Tasty Tuesday post...it's been a while.

    We didn't do much to celebrate. My daughter and I sat down and did a few little toddler friendly St. Patty's day crafts.
