Feeling Lucky?

I've got another St. Patrick's Day card for you today!  This one was inspired by a card made by my friend Emma, from My Creative Time.  Her card has the leprechaun's legs sticking out of a beer stein.  I switched it up a bit to make it kid friendly.

My card base is made from a 12" x 6" piece of kraft cardstock from The Paper Company, scored at 6". The dark green layer is cut at 5 3/4" square, and the patterned kraft is 5 1/2" square.  I added a little strip of patterned paper edged with the ekSuccess Bumpy Roads Edger Punch.

I found the cute pot of gold and legs in the Silhouette Studio Online Store.  I cut the pot of gold at 3.315" and added lots of Stickles to the gold.  The legs are cut at 1.12", and I covered the shoes with Glossy Accents before popping them up with dimensional adhesive.

To make my little banner, I stamped this cute sentiment from My Creative Time's I Believe in Leprechauns, notched the end with scissors, inked it up, and attached it with my new Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.

The inside has another sentiment from I Believe in Leprechauns!
