March Madness with Tsunami Rose - Pocket Card

Check out this beautiful
 Vintage St. Patrick's Day card using the
 March freebie from
Tsunami Rose Designs


One of my Favorite shops is having a sale!!!
Whoop!  Whoop!

I enlarged one the tag with all of the shamrocks on it to use as my first layer over a 
5 1/2 x 4 1/4" base of white cardstock was layered with a 
5 1/4" " x 4" piece of black cardstock. 
 I enlarged one of the tags with all of the shamrocks on it, printed it and cut it to
 5" x 3 3/4". 
 The two inside corners of the base and all of the outside corners of the 2 layers were
 rounded using a corner punch.

I printed 2 sheets and cut out the center oval and sprayed it with Goosebumps. 
 Once the pocket was cut and glued, I attached the pic with foam tape.
Some ribbon and lace were added to the bottom third of the card.

The Irish Blessings sentiment was found online at:
It was cut 2 3/4" x 2 1/4", corners rounded,  layered on
 black cardstock and trimmed to fit and corners rounded.
The pocket panel was taped in place and  next the sentiment was  attached with foam tape

I made  a loop for the tag and 2 bows from the same satin ribbon used on the card, glued in place and added some Dollar Store silk petals with green bling.

I hope everyone had a terrific St. Patrick's Day
Wishing you a blessed day today!
