"The Luck of the Irish" Challenge

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today at Exploring Cricut & More, we're hosting a challenge celebrating the Luck of the Irish - Create something celebrating St. Patrick's Day, and include a shamrock.  Here is what I created to inspire you:
I am 0% Irish, and my current diet doesn't include corned beef, cabbage or potatoes... so there won't be much 'celebrating' going on in our house for St. Patrick's day, but there's always a need for a good old "Good Luck" card :)

I used Cricut's "Create a Critter" cartridge for the heart, cut it 6 times at 1", folded them in half and glued them in the shamrock arrangement.  I cut the bag from the "Freshly Picked" cartridge and distressed the edges with Tea Dye distress ink.

So, give your luck a shot and create your shamrock-celebration and enter our challenge over at Exploring Cricut and More - Thanks for looking!


  1. I love your shamrock. Very unique. Great job. Can't wait to make it

  4. If your parents adopt me, then I'd be your sister and I've got a ton of Irish to share. Whadda ya' think?? ;) Love the card---the dimensional shamrock turned out really cute!
