Hey Crafters! Priscilla here with lots of fun St. Patty’ cards— all featuring Kat‘s new “Zig Zag” dies. I love making St. Patrick’s Day cards, I think because the bold green on them give me hope that spring is right around the corner. Plus isn’t everyone “Irish” on St. Patty’s Day? LOL!
My first card features “Aidan,” one of the Julie Nutting dolls. Isn’t he handsome in his green and black gingham pants?
Because Aidan is so long, I created an 8 x 4.25 card base and stamped him directly on the front. After Copic coloring his skin and hair, I paper -pieced his pants and t-shirt logo using paper from the Doodlebug “Lots O’ Lucky”paper pad.
My second card feature the new “Zig Zag Oval Dies” and a stamp set from Neat & Tangled, “So Lucky.”
I cut a large oval from the die set and white heat embossed the sentiment on it. I also used the same oval to die cut the center of a white “heart embossed” panel and insert the green oval inside it.
The sentiment “In My Life,” also from the “So Lucky” set was stamped on an “Stitched Sentiment Strip”die, adhered to the front panel, and topped off with a resin shamrock from my stash.
Speaking of shamrocks, this next card features a whole jar full of them! I used Lawn Fawn’s “How You Bean?” stamp set and coordinating diesto create the jar, and once again using the Doodlebug “Lots O’Lucky” papers.
I used the “Zig Zag Rectangle”die to create a panel for the front of the card, with some Doodlebuggingham behind it. The “Lucky Me” die cut is also from this same paper pad.
Before “filling” the jar with shamrocks, I mixed clear glitter and Kat‘s “Kelly Green Star Solid Confetti Sequins”and adhered them to the base of the jar. Some more Kelly Green stars and silver thread provided a finishing touch for this card.
I call this card my “Quilt Card,” and Kat’s “Zig Zag Square Dies” helped me piece it together for the front of this next card.
The quilt squares, the rainbow paper, and the sentiment all came from the Doodlebugpaper pack. Kat‘s “Kelly Green Star Solid Confetti Sequins” highlight the lucky rainbow.
I used one of the “Zig Zag Border Dies”to add a cool edge to the front panel that mimics the musical notes on the patterned paper strip.
My final card is not a card at all, but a cute “St. Patty’s” tag, using three of the “Zig Zag Circle Dies.”
Well, that’s all for today. See you again soon!
