My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 80 Happy St. Patrick's Day

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Happy Saturday everyone! Time again for a fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts!  Challenge 80 is Happy St. Patrick's Day - Make an easel card and add a shamrock. I enjoy doing easel cards! Of course, several variations can be done. You can find a tutorial at SplitCoastStampers for the basic easel card. I made a Twisted easel card and you can find Mary's tutorial at Cardz TV.

Cricut Cartridges:
Simply Charmed - Page 32 Leprachaun is cut 2.75".
Elegant Edges - Page 62 For the white mat and green mat, I used Clover-s (image on shift) is cut 3 1/2" and shadow feature is cut at same size.
A Child's Year - Page 31  Shamrock is cut using the Icon feature cut at 1.75".
Phrases -  Page 45 "Happy St. Patrick's Day" is cut at 1.25" using Phrase 3 main and shadow keys.
Polka Dots Folder on the white mat
Swiss Dots - Hat; Divine Swirls - Hair; Houndstooth- Jacket
Other supplies: Acton Wobble under the Leprachaun for some fun movement and he is holding the shamrock with a piece of Baker's Twine. Shamrock and mats are pop-dotted. Recollection gemstones.

Be sure to stop by My Sheri Crafts and see all the great easel cards by the design team and guest designer. We appreciate your visits and comments at our individual blogs too! We look forward to seeing your easel cards. Remember you must add a shamrock! One winner will be selected to be our next guest designer and several Ooh La La awards are given.
