Happy St. Patty's Day Card - Cricut

This card is going to be a bit different.  We are on a new page in our Art Philosophy booklet.  This is the page with the on it.  We're going to start with the oval but I'm not going to give you directions today because most of what I made this card with is not something that you have.  So, just check out this unusual card and IF you would like to make it, join us TODAY at the Berrien Senior Center in Coloma (on Ryno Road) from 12:30-2:30.  For just $10 you can make all the cards possible in 2 hours.  I have 25 different cards for you to choose from.  

A very long time ago paper dolls were very popular in scrapbooks.  A company called Stamping Station made these cute little paper dolls called Stick Kids.   I loved them and bought EVERY single kit.  I have dolls that are dressed in sports uniforms, brides, grooms, princesses, slumber party pj's and so much more.   Since they've gone out of style I haven't been able to use them much anymore but I pulled out the groom paper doll and changed it into a leprechaun for St. Patrick's Day.  Here is the clothes I traced from the "groom's" clothes pattern.  

I finished the doll and plopped him on a 8 by 3 1/2 inch card, making him stand on a rectangle that contains a   Happy Patty's Day sign that I made on ......ta oval cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge.  Hope you like it and that you can make it to the card workshop today to make it!!!

Don't forget that you have a chance to win a brand new pair of our non-stick scissors if you place an order by Sunday AND get in the drawing for the Art Philosophy cartridge (a $99 value).


  1. I think your leprechaun is adorable. What a good idea for re-purposing wedding cartridges from Cricut!

  2. He turned out really cute. Thanks.
