Happy St. Patrick's Day Card X 30

Okay, so you are going to look at this card and think it is the simplest card you've ever seen. Well it probably is. My Daddy wanted 30 St. Patrick's Day cards so he could send one to each of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He wants to write each grandchild a special note from him and my Mom and include a lucky $2 bill.


This is a tri-fold style card. You open up the shamrock...


Then open the Happy St. Patrick's Day flap and there is lots of space for writing, which I happen to know my Papa will use up completely. He loves writing notes to his family.


So, how long does it take to make 30 simple cards. Well, I don't how long it would take most of you, but it took me about 3 hours and I was feeling REALLY good about that. I completed each step for every card before moving to the next. This makes it go SO much faster. So I cut all 30 cards and then the 30 shamrocks, then I folded all of them, next I adhered the green shamrocks to each card, then I stamped all of their adorable Peachy faces, following that I stamped them all with Emma's cute sentiment and last of all I did my doodling. 3ish hours later... 30 cards... et VOILA!


Items Used:

*Designer's Calendar Cricut cartridge
*Gypsy
*My Creative Time stamps - I Believe in Leprechauns

  14. That's alot of cards! I think 3 hours was fast! Cute and simple, but I would have been tired of all that doodling!

  15. These are wonderful! I'm glad to know that I am not the only person who mass produces cards one step at a time. Everyone is always asking "how many are done...how many are done?" and I have to explain that I do them ALL a step at a time so they are all done at once. I guess you have to do it to understand. 3 hours was pretty good for all that doodling and I'm sure your father and all the recipients will love them! It reminds me of my grandfather although he still makes his own cards!
