Hop into spring with me and make some cute St. Patrick’s Day cards, tags and embellishments! I had fun again with the Dollar Tree frog stickers and used up some of my paper stash. Here are few items that I made! My YouTube video is down below.
For these cards,on the left, I started off with a white card stock base cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ folded in half. Then I layered with two patterned papers. I tied a ribbon around the center of the vertical piece, then placed the frog sticker on the middle lower part. I stamped my sentiment on white card stock, then adhered that to a green mat and then adhered it to the top portion of the card. I finished it off by adding sequins in the 4 corners of the sentiment. On the right card, I used a patterned paper base, then added a rectangle of a coordinating pattern. I then tied a ribbon around the whole top fold of the card and placed the frog sticker on top of that. I stamped the sentiment and matted it like before, but added tiny rhinestones in the 4 corners, plus a mini paper bow in the center that I made from my Fiskar’s mini bow punch.
Here are two tags that I made. They are a simple shape that I cut using my paper trimmer. I just cut a rectangle at 5″ x 3″. Then I cut tails at the bottom that extend from the center about 2″ up. I layered papers on top with a sentiment on the left tag, topped with sequins. Then on the right tag, I made a shamrock using my heart punch, stickled the edges with lime green glitter glue stickle and topped it off with a green button.
I made a rosette badge and wand, using St. Patrick’s day cupcake liners. I topped them with a heart shamrock, then with a basic rosette. If you would like to see how to make the rosette’s here is a link to my YouTube tutorial: https://youtu.be/aSANWRgdZ5w. I also made a rosette paper clip that was topped with a mini shamrock made with a mini heart punch.
Aren’t these just the cutest? I think these are my favorites! I just love the frogs and the polka dot paper!
