On St. Patrick’s Day which is celebrated on March 17, millions of people will display dazzling colors of green and gold in their home, cars and wardrobe. Year long prep for magical celebrations to honor Saint Patrick will come about with parades, good cheer, and a pint of Guinness beer. Celebrating this spirited day can also be a fun crafty day with friends and family.
Create some good cheer through cards, banners, wreaths and festive wares. Call on your girlfriends to create for a Pre-Paddy’s Day craft party at the house. Make some fun and festive cards filled with shamrock greens, limes, creams, golds and canvas color palettes. Add shimmer with Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam Paints and Spray Mists. Don’t forget the rhinestones, wording and some Canvas Corp Burlap or Canvas sheets or flowers to finish off your card creations. To see a wide range of St. Patrick’s Day products view the collection in the shop.
We thought it would be fun to round up some fabulous St. Paddy’s Day cards from our CCB Crew. This post kicks off with a set of fantastically green cards by Cherry Nelson of Cherry’s Jubilee Design.
We love the fun combination of greens that come together for this very “Lucky” card. The mix of non-seasonal items together with touches of the season are the perfect combo. So when you have those random left over letters and numbers, you just never know when they might come in very handy.
We love silhouettes and this is the perfect detail for this Lassie Card. Again the great mixture of random letters adds a special character to this card that we are in love with. To find out all the details about Cherry’s Cards you can visit her blog Cherry’s Jubilee Design.
If you want to pick the perfect green, why not paint your lucky clovers, like these matching St. Patrick’s Day Cards. Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam from the Lucky Calendar Kit and a sheet of the new Good Luck on Ivory from Canvas Corp. The glam adds just the right amount of sparkle and the it is the perfect green.
If you have a little extra paper from our project, why not make fun little tags you can wrap around silverware if you are hosting a St. Paddy’s Day party or as drink markers for those green beer mugs.
Or wrap a piece around a mason jar filled with green, yellow and white jelly beans.
Materials Used: Canvas Corp Good Luck on Ivory, Black & Ivory Diamonds, Canvas Corp Canvas Fringe

Erin created a beautiful green shabby chic card, that is not necessarily for the holiday but a little 4 leaf clover or a pot of gold will instantly transform this card to a mixed media card for St. Paddy’s or make just like it is and send it to make someone smile this Spring. For all the details on how Erin made this card visit her blog Scraps of Reflections.
Next on our round up is a card from Barb Housner entitled; “Lucky to Have You” which as Barb describes it; “A simple card using two different patterned papers to send to friends on St. Patrick’s Day.” She dyed seam binding with Baseboard Mist Paint to make her flower. You can use Tattered Angels Paints to transform silk, canvas, burlap, ribbon, seam binding and other fabric style materials instantly. You can let them air dry or speed up the process with a heat gun, just be careful that you do not damage the fabric if it gets too hot.
Barb used these supplies from Canvas Corp and Tattered Angels;
