St. Pat's Card

Here is my yearly attempt at a St. Patrick's Day card! This has got to be the easiest card ever, and it is also the best attempt I have ever come up with in all my years of card making! I wanted to keep it easy, as I will be following up with Easter cards very soon!

Here is what I used:

Wild Wasabi Cardstock and Inkpad

Jet Black Staz On Inkpad

Su! Basic Black Cardstock

Purple Onion Designs "St. Patrick's Day" sentiment

Blender Pen, Scalloped Circle and Circle Punches, Ticket Corner Punch

Michael's $1.000 stamp, SU! Crosshatch Background, SU! Happy Everything

SU! Certainly Celery Grosgrain Ribbon

I love to make cards that open in the front like this one, but it is hard to keep them closed. Then I came across this cool velcro stuff my cousin Lauri had given me. It is like velcro, but it is clear, and both sides are the same, but they still hook together. It is called 3M Dual Lock. It is the best stuff EVER!! So I affixed the dual lock on the back of the black diamond piece, and on the right flap. It was a success! I took two extra pics, one so you could see the dual lock on both sides, and the other so you could see the inside!

I also filled the card with miniature shamrocks that I found at Joann's. They are loose and *I think* made to scatter across tables like confetti? Anyway, I scattered some at the base of the card so you could see those, too!
