Lori Whitlock's March Blog Hop - St. Patrick's Day

Hello and welcome to another Lori Whitlock blog hop! :) You should have gotten here from the fabulous Tya's blog, but you should start HERE at Lori Whitlock's blog.

Since St. Patrick's Day is coming I wanted to use some of Lori's shamrock-themed files. :) I used two. The shamrock shaped card can be found HERE in Lori's store and the other card can be found HERE.

I had such a great time making this shamrock shaped card. A little of this and a little of that and shazam! Instant cuteness.

The super fun part was that my littles (just turned 2 and 3.5) INSISTED on me making doubles for them. So they got their own cards to decorate as well using these files. This is such a great way to get the little people involved and to make cards for grandma! Give it a try.

Here is the second card. The only manipulation I did to this card was to highlight the shamrock, circle, and scalloped circle and I enlarged them. I really liked the large focal point.

I added a mini doily, some twine and an epoxy shamrock. Easy. I love how easy Lori's files make it.

Here are the Silhouette files:
