St Patricks Day Cards

I'm here with you today bringing some festive St Patrick's Day cards.  St. Patrick's Day is not just for the Irish...I'm not Irish at all.  But I sure love the festivities.  Any holiday that can bring folks together in joyous celebration is a beautiful day.  

These cards combine Spellbinders dies and Creative Embellishments fun chipboard pieces for St. Patrick's Day.  There's still time to get those cards made.  
I used the following pieces on my cards: 

I love this card because I can save this and send anytime.  I left the Circle Doodle Frames (chipboard)
untreated, straight from the package.  
The wood veneer Shamrock sits on the top left section of the wreath. I added a bit of mossy olive ink.  
Finally, the clover cluster was painted white, then simply inked with olive and brown inks.  
While I used the small chipboard word "luck"  as  a prop in the picture below,  here's the link to the Small Sentiment Words. They are perfectly sized for cards and tags.

I used the chipboard clover cluster here as well, nestled inside a decorative diecut frame from SpellbindersTallulah Frill Layering Frame - Chantilly Paper Lace Collection by Becca Feeken.  

 I used the same technique as in the above card - painted white, then simply inked with olive and brown inks.  I added a few accent mini gold balls. 

Short on time?  Keep it simple.  
Use the chipboard and veneer as the focal point on your cards.   
 I love the simplicity of the  wood veneer Shamrock .  I left it natural. 
While there is not a lot to the last card, keep in mind sometimes you just need to get a card made.  

Thanks for stopping by to visit.
