Happy Lashes Shamrock Card

Good Afternoon My Crafty Friends.  I had plans to get some things done around the house today but when I checked my email this morning I got all inspired after watching Mary's Video from Cardz TV for her Baby Cards (I added the link so you can go watch for yourself if you missed it... I love her videos!).  I just had to come play in my craft room and use the fun card file she used from Cricut Wild Card Cart with the little window.  What a great cut that can be utilized for so many different card themes.  This will become a go-to card cut for me I am sure.  Here is the fun card I came up with.

I cut a green card base with the window from Page 43 in Cricut Wild Card cut at 6 1/4"
I used a fun blue dot paper with a rainbow on it from a Paper Studio Pack called Daydream Doodle for my card Layer.  I cut the Shamrock from Cricut Create a Critter 2 @ 2 1/2" an added the adorable Peachy Keen Face Stamp from the Happy Lashes set (1 1/8").  The adorable green paper with glitter dots used for her and the window frame are from the same paper pack.  I added some dark green card stock from my scrap bin for the shadow layer to the shamrock and the smaller one I cut for the inside.  The Shamrock Girl on the front is pop dotted up on foam squares.  I used my pink & Red gel pens to color in her mouth & tongue and pink chalk for her little rosy cheeks.  I tied a small bow from pink satin ribbon and used a small bit of double stick tape to adhere it to her head. 


I used a Scallop Circle Die-cut from Paper Wishes for the gold Piece and stamped it with a Happy St. Patrick's Day Circle Stamp and then a bright red lips-kiss stamped in the center.  I trimmed off the overhang on that Scallop circle.  Those 2 stamps plus the sentiment stamp in the window (I'm all the Luck you need) are all from a set called Irish Luck From Shabby Chic Stamp Co.

and finally on the inside I started by printing out the Happy St. Patrick's Day sentiment on the yellow paper, Leaving room above it for my stamp through the window & cutting it to fit just inside the card base.  One last thing... I ran the small shamrock through the CB Swiss dots folder and ran some very pale blue ink over it to make the dots pop before adhering it down in the corner.

And here is one more view with a clip holding it closed so you can see it better.
I am entering in to these fun challenges:
