Wishing You a Pot O' Gold - Digi Doodle Studios Patty Leprechaun

 May the dreams you hold dearest be those which come true,
and the kindness you spread keep returning to you. 

Hey there from Nannyland, 

Shamrocks and leprechauns and rainbows...Oh My! Another fun card crafting holiday is on the horizon and I'm knee deep in all things green in Nannyland.  This adorable image from Digi Doodles Studios is called Patty Leprechaun and she depicts everything delightful about this lively day of celebration.  

I designed a shaped flip card base in Cricut Design Space and used digital designer paper with an Irish theme for the background panels.  The argyle print is very colorful and a bit busy, so I toned it down with a large sentiment panel on the inside of the card.  I edged all the card panels with a gold leafing pen and dry embossed the front panel with a celtic-style embossing folder.   

A  close up of my image shows the Stickles in the center of the shamrocks on her skirt and clear gems in her shamrock bouquet and her hat.  I chose to color her tights and shirt in rainbow stripes to go along with the pot of gold theme. 

I created a label in Cricut Design Space to match my card base and used the writing feature to draw the sentiment.  I love this feature in Cricut because I can create any sentiment I want and cut it out to fit my card dimensions.

What a delight it was to use Copics in bright greens, yellows and rainbow hues to brighten up one of the happiest holidays of the year.  Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone!
