St. Patty's Day Cards

This Irish girl LOVES St. Patty's Day. I always send cards to my grandparents to celebrate.  These are the cards I made this year:

I kept the outsides and the insides simple this year. I was a bit sick when I made them, so I wasn't really big on the idea of taking hours to create them. I kept the insides simple too. Instead of stamping I used stickers from Reminisce Shamrock Collection.

To add a little pizazz to the cards, I decided to add a little shimmer. For the Salante card (similar to saying "Cheers") I ran the background paper through my Big Shot with a honeycomb embossing folder.

 Then I rubbed a little Versamark ink over it and dusted it with copper and green Perfect Pearls.

 For my second card I added shimmer by cutting a background from American Craft Pow! Glitter Paper with my Silhouette.

 I love how easy it is to cut Pow! paper with my Silhouette. Even the intricate details of this background!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great St. Patty's Day!

both of your cards are gorgeous. I'm jealous of your grandparents. I bet (actually know) they loved them.
