St Patricks Day is this coming Sunday, so we thought we would make today's card shares all about some fun and unique St Patricks Day cards.
“Smile Friend” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
Bella's new Crochet Hearts make such cute Shamrocks, don't you think? I used three of the Pickle Juice Crochet Hearts and cut out a little "stem" using some coordinating patterned paper. I embellished it with some Button Market buttons, a Ciao Chip Star, and a couple of sentiment stickers.

“Lucky To Know You” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
I am so smitten with the new Freestyle Sophisticates collection! So many of the colors will work for many different holiday cards! I used the new Freestyle Pickle Juice paper to create a Shamrock shaped card. For the sentiment, I chose to use two of the Sophisticates Green High Five Alphabet stickers.

"Good Luck" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I used a heart punch to make the 4 leaf clover on this card. I punched 4 hearts out of the same patterned paper and arranged them to look like a clover. Easy! I started to make this card entirely green but, believe it or not, it seemed a bit too green! So I threw in a little yellow and I like the contrast! Thanks for looking!

"Don't Forget your Green" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I wanted to use a lot of green on this St. Patty's Day card. I dug around in my Bella Blvd stash and found this green flag from the "Camping" flags, the Green High Five Alphabets, and the "Outdoors" buttons. I used the new Pickle Juice Freestyle patterned paper as the base of the card and I grabbed the green patterned paper and the Just Write Journaling Stickers from the new Sand & Surf line. All these different green items coordinated so well together! I love that! Happy St. Patrick's Day!

“Kiss Me I’m Irish” card, by Kathy Martin.
Bella Blvd’s Pickle Juice green is a favorite color of mine! I love the shade of green and the name is adorable, don’t you think? When I was asked to make a couple of St. Patrick’s Day cards for you, I jumped at the chance to create with the beautiful Pickle Juice papers and accents! What do you think? Do you think Pickle Juice green is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day?

“Kiss Me” card, by Kathy Martin.
When I don’t have an occasion specific collection for a project, like this St. Patrick’s Day card, I find that keeping the design clean and simple makes it a snap to create. For this card I focused on the sentiment using these Sienna Chip alphabets. I also love buttons and thought a trio of them would make the perfect accent. The final addition was the big red lips, which add an element of fun.

“Good Luck” card, by Sheri Feypel.
Rather than making a normal sized card, I went with a 5x5 this time. I really needed to accommodate my hexagons, so I felt this was a good size to fit them. I arranged my hexagons and added several different pink patterns to the middles of each one. I topped it off with a shamrock, a few buttons and some twine to bring it all together. Now I think I need a Shamrock Shake!

“Happy Lucky Day” card, by Sheri Feypel.
Originally my sentiment on this card was going to be "Get Lucky" but I decided it might not be appropriate? I still think it would have been cute though. Anyhow, I went with a Rainbow of colors of the Designer Tapes from Bella Blvd instead of patterned papers. I used a dark grey background to make the tape colors pop. I cut the little flag out of tape as well. I love that there are so many different uses for this tape! Happy St. Patty's Day!
