Shamrock Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

With all the pretty Make It Now projects available in Cricut Design Space, I find it hard to decide which one to try first. With St. Patrick's Day fast approaching this week and needing one more card,  I chose to use this pretty Shamrock Card. Card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and is cut from white card stock. Patterned papers are DCWV Fresh Floral Stack.

Cricut Cartridges:
Make It Now Shamrock Card-- I followed the instructions given for the cutting and some of the assembly. Two shamrocks are cut. Edges of the top shamrock are slightly curled inward and then it is placed on the second shamrock using foam squares. The button is added with DMC embroidery thread and then I made a small bow. I made a goof with one of the shamrocks and cut two more. I added the extra one inside the card.
Family Album - Wanting to add a bit more interest to the top of card and make it my card, I added the small pendants and clover from the Lucky Scrapbook Page. After ungrouping the images, the pendants were cut at 1.50" wide x 1.33"high. Note: These images are not included with the Make It Now instructions.
Designer's Calendar - St. Patrick's Day is cut 3" wide. This is used inside the card!

I cut the plaid background paper at 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" and the white background paper at 5 1/8" x 3 7/8". 
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder is used on the white paper.
