St. Patrick Day Greetings

Monday Greetings to you!

It's time for a new challenge at The Kraft Journal!  This week we want to see your St. Patrick Creations!

For my card, I started with a base of Brown Kraft cardstock onto which I added a layer of Vintage Dictionary Pages and a strip of patterned paper from my stash. I die-cut a scallop border from a shimmery green textured cardstock and added that where the paper met. I then wrapped a length of Spring Green Hemp Cord from the Bright Hemp Cord collection around the card several times for added texture.
I printed a vintage image onto Buff Ivory cardstock and cut it out and placed it onto a kraft pocket.  Using a die from My Creative Time, a paper rosette was created from the same shimmery green textured cardstock as the scallop border and I die-cut a scallop circle also from My Creative Time from Buff Ivory cardstock adding to the center. Next I created a Happy St. Patrick's sentiment banner from Brown Kraft cardstock adding another layer to the rosette. The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom Lucky Treats set. I created a fluffy bow from Aqua Mist Seam Binding adding an embellishment to the center. Lastly, I then layered the embellished bow onto two silk leaves. The leaves were white silk leaves that you can find in the bridal section of most craft stores and I spritzed them with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.

So that is it! I hope you have enjoyed my vintage St. Patrick's Day card.  We hope to see your St. Patrick's creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be showcased in the "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher to The Kraft Outlet store.
