Ms. March Guest Designer at the Cricutolics Forum

 Top of the mornin' to you!

I am this month's guest designer at the Cricutolics Forum over in the UK. If you have not previously visited the Cricutolics Forum please do follow the link and pop on over.  It is a fun site.

Given that I am guest designing on an International forum, I decided to skip right past Presidents' Day (because really, the UK doesn't care about our silly colonial celebration!) and jump ahead to a fun holiday we can all sink out teeth into.... St. Patrick's Day!!!  I feel certain that my Irish ancestors are all cheering this choice, just as surely as I know the Scottish and English ancestors are rolling their eyes in my direction!

I used three cartridges to create this card, George and Basic Shapes for the base card and the printed sections, Designer's Calendar for the large and the single shamrocks as well as the hat, and A Child's Year for the shamrock border.   My design calls for a white base card, green and white solid cardstock, and three to four Celtic or green print papers.

 The cut file for this card is available for free download in the left column of the blog, under the title Shuttered Tri-Fold St. Patrick's Day Card.     Even if you do not want to create a St. Patty's card, the cut file does contain the base card pattern.


  1. I love this card. I am so excited that I actually have all 3 carts and you shared the file. Thank you. I can't wait to try it!!

  2. oh wow susan that looks awesome hun!! love the little hat with a badge on it!! too cute hugs Lou xxx

  5. Thanks so much for sharing the cut pattern for that absolutely beautiful St. Patrickd's card. I've got to try it!

  6. Thanks for the cut also. I have been wanting to make some cards using this different fold & now you have made it so easy..I am Scotch Irish so 1/2 of me loves the card also..

  7. oh thank you for such great ideas for St. Patricks Day cards. I was thinking about how to do some fun cards just yesterday. Now this gives me some awesome ideas. Thanks for sharing!
