FCCB #296 - St. Patrick's Day with VIDEO!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #296-St. Patricks Day
Make a project about St. Patricks Day, such as Shamrocks or Leprechauns

This Weeks Sponsor

Dreaming Tree SVG's

The winner will receive a $20 Gift Certificate!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

This week for my project I've used the Spring Gatefold Card from the Dreaming Tree Gatefold Card SVG Bundle and changed it a bit to create a St. Patrick's Day card by adding Cricut cuts from the CTMH Artistry and CTMH Art Philosophy cartridges. There are three beautiful cards that come in this bundle, and I love the videos that come with each project to show you exactly how to put them together. 

I exchanged the flower cut that comes on the front of the card with this hat emblem, and added a little clover to the front with some sparkly Stickles. I cut out the Cheers Cricut cut and removed the border around it and then added it to the top of the card for some St. Patty's Day wishes!

The inside of the card was already a four petaled flower, and I thought that would be perfect as a clover. I added a Cricut clover cut, adding some Distress Ink and Stickles.

I used the fun Lucky stamp set from Pretty Cute Stamps and added a couple sentiments - one to the inside, and one to the back of the card where I'll add a little message. I love that this card comes with a matching envelope! I stamped a little clover from the Lucky set and added some matching striped paper to the flap.

I've also added a VIDEO so you can see how I put this fun card together:
