St. Patty's Day Cards

Used the same layout using two different St. Patrick's Day printed card stocks from Hobby Lobby. Both cards are on a #110 weight white card stock from Mikes. Here is the first card:

Used a light green card stock for the card front. The white card front piece is GP white. Used a hexagon punch for the card front and the printed card stocks. Used a smaller hexagon punch for the small white hexagon the shamrock is on.

Cut and scored the white card stock base with the fold at the top. Cut the light green card stock for the card front. Put this piece onto the white card stock base using the ATG. For the white/GP card front I used the larger hexagon punch and just punched the card stock. Using that same punch I punched out five of the printed card stock pieces. Used the ATG for adhesive and put these onto the card front using the ATG.

Stamped the "Happy St. Patrick's Day" stamp in dark green above the printed hexagon pieces. Using pop dots I put this onto the green card front. Used a smaller hexagon punch and punched out a white hexagon and put that in the center of the hexagon on the card front using the ATG for adhesive. Used a small shamrock punch and punched out a dark green shamrock. Used clear Wink of Stella to add sparkle to that:

Put the glittery shamrock onto the white hexagon piece using a glue dot. Used a small flower punch for the three flowers on the card front. Added clear crystals to those. Used glue dots to put them on the card front.

Here is the other card using another shamrock printed card stock:

Easy card to put together and with the different prints the card have a totally different look. TFL

Love this hexagon layout! Clever & very stylish. I have some of this same paper too! Hope you guys are doing ok with the crazy weather. We got a light snow flurry this morning (or so I was told). I didn't see a speck of white when I got up! TFS
