St. Patrick’s Day Craft - Greeting Card - “Lucky”

Bright green shamrocks not only look so fresh and spring like, but will bring you all the luck in the world. This card was created using the Sizzix eclips machine and the “Holiday cartridge”. If you do not have this machine nor cartridge, let this card inspire you to make a similar one. You can for example use this Shamrock Template. Print the template out to a size so that 3 of them will fit across the green strip like you see in the picture. Trace the template three times onto the green cardstock and cut out. For the word “lucky” you can find appropriate stickers, stamp the message onto white cardstock or print out the word lucky in a green color using your favorite font on the computer, for example.

Lucky St. Patrick's Day Greeting Card 1



The following supplies were used to make this project:

* white card
* white and green heavy cardstock
* 3 bright green buttons matching the green paper
* Sizzix eclips machine
* Sizzix eclips cartridge “Holiday”
* Cuttlebug
* embossing folder with dots (this one was from Cuttlebug)
* 3-D foam pads
* stick glue or double-sided adhesive

First a wide piece of green cardstock was cut that is the same width as the card and about 2/3 the height.


Then 3 shamrocks were cut into the green card next to each other. The green paper with the apertures was then adhered onto the white card. The 3 shamrock were then embossed and double sided adhesive was placed on the backside of them. Then they were stuck slightly to the side of each aperture to create a sort of shadow effect. Buttons were glued onto the centers of the shamrocks.

A white strip of cardstock was cut to fit the bottom 1/3 of the card. Then it was embossed and adhered to the card.

The word lucky was cut out using the same cartridge as well as a miniature shamrock and both these were adhered onto the white embossed strip.
