St. Patrick's Day Birthday

I made this card for a friend whose aunt celebrates her birthday on St. Patrick's Day. 

I chose a warm green card base.  I added a few stripes of vellum which were adhere to the inside of the card  then flipped forward to cover the front. I added some double sided tape down the card which will be covered by the greeting.

The greeting was printed on bright warm green card stock and then I ripped the bottom and top edges.  It was adhered aligned to the bottom of the card front.

I punched 3 hearts from plaid green glitter paper with the Stampin Up Sweetheart punch.  I cut a stem by hand with scissors.  I added 3 small hearts over the glitter ones adhered with 3D foam tape.  The shamrock was assembled and glued in place with double sided tape. 

The white narrow ribbon was added just above the greeting. I used a 1/8" circle punch to create a small hole in the fold on the left hand side.  I ran a length of the ribbon twice through and tied a knot on the right hand side of the card.  

I added an Irish Blessing on the inside.


  1. So professional-looking, and yet when you walk through the 'how-to', I think even I could do it!
