St. Paddy's Day

This week's challenge at Made Especially for You is to create a St. Patrick's Day card using twine. As always, this challenge will run from Monday to Sunday. Not gonna lie-twine makes me nervous, but I was happy with how my card turned out.

Our sponsor this week is Meljen's Designs and the winner will receive four non-colored images of their choice! Great prize!



Also if you enter this challenge, be sure to enter my Cricut Imagine Cartridge giveaway here! You have until March 16th! Now onto what I made-






For this card, I cut the shamrocks from my Paper Dolls Dress Up cartridge. I made two shamrocks, the first silvery one being slightly bigger than the green glittery one that I put on top. I used 3D Zots to give it a little something more. Then I tried stamping the sentiment in the middle, but the ink kept running on the paper so I made a smaller shamrock and stamped it on there. I tied the twine using a hole puncher and wrapped them around green tacks. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be actually. Hope you like it!

Til Next Time, Happy Crafting!
