St. Patrick's Day Fun Fold Card

It's Crackerbox Palace Friday and today I am sharing a St. Patrick’s Day fun fold card made with stamps from Crackerbox Palace. To make this card, I started with a piece of spring green paper 12” x 5 ½” and scored at 2, 4 , 8 and 10 inches. Fold mountain, valley, valley, mountain resulting in a 4 x 5/12 card. I have seen this card fold used with punched owls and other animals- the key is to attach two stamped or punched figures to the top fold on both sides and one to the center of the bottom fold. I stamped two of Crackerbox Palace’s leprechauns, cut out and attached to two stitched ovals. I attached them with adhesive on the top half only to the sides of the top folded half. Then I stamped CBP’s leprechaun hat, cut out, attached to a stitched oval and put that in the center of the bottom half. The stitched oval dies are from My Creative Time. I stamped the curved sentiment and a couple more shamrocks on the front. 

On the inside of the folded card, I stamped another shamrock and a lovely Irish blessing. I don’t usually make St. Patrick’s Day cards, but these stamps from Crackerbox Palace are just too fun to resist. I will share another St Pat’s card next Friday.

**As a present to you from Crackerbox Palace, all the  stamps  on this card will be 20% OFF for one week! What a deal! **

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Love’s Rubberstamps and the “Good Luck” challenge at Open-Minded Crafting.
