Quick Quotes St. Patrick's Day cards and decor


What a better soft green to create St. Patrick's cards and decor with than the new Chiffon collection. Alicia posting today for Quick Quotes.  I made some fun and uniquely Irish cards and decor with a fresh spring flair.

 

First up are my pinwheels.  I love the pinwheels I have received in some of my Quick Quotes Club Q kits so when I found a pinwheel die I purchased it!  The lovely two sided papers make gorgeous pinwheels, don't you think? I used manual die cuts for all the papers and just measured with a ribbon to cut the base of my bottle wrap.  I just loved how sweet this project turned out.


Next is a card.  I started with this sparkling card base and built layers of die cut papers upon that.  When I was finished I added ribbon and pearls.


This gate fold card was also a predesigned base.  I used a border punch to liven up the paper covering the outside.  I just love the celtic knot die, it is only adhered on one side as to open easily.



Peekaboo!  The inside has more celtic die cuts with the same St. Patrick's Day sentiment.  It just fit perfect in that scallop circle punch.  The Quick Quotes Chiffon collection made some beautiful St. Patrick's Day cards and decor.
