St. Patty's Day Invite



Every year I have some family over for a traditional St. Patrick's Day dinner. It's one of our favorite traditions! I usually don't make invitations, but when I saw this stamp from My Creative Time's "I Believe in Leprechauns" stamp set, I couldn't resist! I'm entering this card into My Creative Time's Throwback Thursday Challenge: use any of the older cartridges and have a St. Patrick's Day theme.


This invitation is a postcard style; I'll just write the info on the back. I made my polka-dotted paper using Spring Moss Ink and the "Polka Dot Basics" stamp set from Papertrey Ink. My pot, cut at 2.6" from the From My Kitchen cartridge, was created on the Imagine using a pattern from the Imagine More cartridge. I printed an extra square of that pattern to use for my die cut button. The little shamrock was cut at 0.7" from Designer's Calendar. Lastly, I heat embossed gold embossing powder for my sentiment.

Recipe:
(all materials Papertrey Ink, unless otherwise specified)

5 1/2" x 4 1/4" Kraft Cardstock
5 1/4" x 4" Pinefeather Cardstock
5" x 3 3/4" Vintage Cream Cardstock

"Polka Dot Basics" Stamp Set
My Creative Time's "I Believe in Leprechauns" Stamp Set
Spring Moss, Chai, and Versamark Ink
Gold Filigree Embossing Powder

That is too cute! I love to have corned beef and cabbage (and potatos too) for St. Patty's Day. Yearsss ago, you could go to a bar/restaurant on that day and buy a dinner plate for $3.17! Oh how times have changed!
