Scrapbooking as much as possible, but sometimes getting distracted by birthdays and life!

Not Typically Irish

If you haven’t noticed, I tend to march to the beat of my own drum at times. I like to push the envelope on certain things, change things up, perhaps…

So, the first thing my husband said about my St Patrick’s Day projects for The Creative Cutting Challenge was that the green wasn’t quite Kelly green. I most definitely was going for a different look with my projects. I wanted to speak to the magic of leprechauns without actually using them and their pot of gold.

I used the Shamrock Cards file from The Creative Pointe to create my cards.

So here’s my first card in all it’s magical glory:


I used shimmery green cardstock, shiny gold cardstock and flat gold sequins to bling this card up a notch.


I love that sparkle!

My second card is a shaker card, using the same cutting file:


I used white cardstock with a gold sheen, gold gel pen for the sentiment and shiny metallic gold sequins for the shaker part. I re-used the cut out shamrocks from the first card on the second one to add some green.

Here’s a closer look:


I hope my projects were an inspiration! I had a lot of fun creating the shaker card and it didn’t take very long to make for all the fun it contains!

I sure hope you’ll play along with the St Patrick’s Day challenge at The Creative Cutting Challenge!

Have a great day!


Edited to add: I’m hoping my cards bring me luck in the Cardz TV St Patrick’s Day Challenge!
