Lucky to be Irish Card

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I have a quick post to share this Lucky to be Irish Card. There is a portion of my families DNA that comes from Irish descent. It's more prominent on my dad's side of the family. Because of our heritage I usually make my immediate family St. Patrick's Day cards, however this year was crazy and this was the only card I made. So, it will be next year before this card gets mailed.

Most of the supplies on this card have been in my stash for several years. Cardstock colors are Garden Green by Stampin' Up! and Sour Apple by Bazzill.  All patterned paper on this card along with the green brads are from The Paper Studio. I've used the very first stamp set I bought for this holiday and it's by Studio G. The stitched circle die is from My Favorite Things the shamrocks were colored with Copic markers.

I started this blog in March 2012 and a St. Patrick's Day card was my third post. This morning I went through the first couple of months of my old posts and it was fun to see the difference in my cards. Here is a link to my first St. Patrick's Day card. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

  7. What a fun St. Patrick's Day card, Andrea! I've got a touch of Irish in me too, but I've never sent a card out. I've made a few for challenges, but I'm not sure what happened to them. lol Thanks for sharing with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.
