i created these cards yesterday but am adding the details today as my son was ill and needed some attention. i used the card function of the child's year cartridge, then cut it in half for the background paper, which i attached to glossy gold cards that i purchased at the dollar store. i used the icon function for the hat, inked the edges, cut scraps to place behind the hat for the shamrock and for the band of the hat. never one to waste, i removed the shamrocks that were left on the cutting mat and glued them down as a border for the card front that did not have the cutout border. a simple stamp, a ribbon to add dimension and i'll be adding an inside sentiment!
