Happy St. Patty's Day

Happy St. Patty's Day (A little early)!  My DH has a brother and sister (Twins) that were born on St. Patty's Day.  Every year I am looking for a way to incorporate St. Patty's Day into their birthday cards.

 I had an idea of a design that came to me last night. I was inspired by Cath's Moxie Fab World Card Creations Challenge of Emphasize the Negative.   I wanted a clean and simple design for my BIL and I was thinking about using the negative space from a couple of clover dies.

I knew I wanted to cut the card with a strip cut out of the front on the right side with a few clovers (Memory Box)  cut into the front.  The rest was looking for a paper to use on the inside and what stamp to use with the clovers.   I found a Studio G set I purchased just for this time of the year. :)

My second card was a quick and easy card too:
 I took a sheet of the March paper from the Graphic 45 calendar collection and cut a few of the images out and distressed the edges.  I just layered them and added a few stamped sentiments and done.  The sentiments are from the Studio G set and Memory Box.

Hope your week is going well!



  1. Such pretty cards. I especially like the birthday postcard . . . beautiful :)

    Your blogging sister, Connie :)

  2. Great makes - clean sharp CAS for the first, and oh so gorgeous vintage perfection for the postcard!

  3. Wow! Both of these are really lovely. Great ideas for both styles!!!!

  4. The St-Patrick's Day card is a fabulous CAS design. And I really enjoy the vintage look on the second one. Beautiful cards Suzanne!

  5. I am just loving both of these cards. Well done my friend.


  6. Fabulous contrast in styles for these two wonderful cards Sue. The first one is a perfect example of elegant C&S and the second a gorgeous vintage look. Love the twine embellishing the cards too.
