St. Patrick's Day Invite

Every year for St. Patrick's Day, we have some family over for a traditional corned beef and cabbage dinner.  This is the invitation I'm sending out this year.  I found some cute patterned paper from the Simple Stories Take a Hike collection, which I used for my color inspiration.  The cute little shamrock was cut with a die from the new My Creative Time You're My Pot of Gold stamp and die set.

I love this turtle with a top hat from the Cricut Create a Critter 2 cartridge!  I cut him at 3" and added a little gold Stickles to his top hat.  The "CHEERS" sentiment is from You're My Pot of Gold, stamped onto a die from MCT's Just Simply Live.  I topped that with a button made from MCT's Stitched Button Dies, tied with a little green hemp from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.

I used the Papertrey Ink Movers & Shakers:  Sliders dies from Papertrey Ink to add a fun element to the card.  When the recipient pulls the tab, the turtle slides up and a message (from MCT's I Believe in Leprechauns) is revealed!

  5. Just saw this and it's adorable. But, the PTI links for the slider brings me to PTI, but there's no die or sentiments. I guess it's discontinued, or do you know?
