Putting some "green" into my projects.

Trying to work on a bunch of cards today. Went to my local scrap store and loaded up on some 6x6 paper stacks that were all on sale for 30% off! Can't wait to try some of them. I also picked up the new DCW Fabric stack. Really hope this will cut in my cricut because it is so cool. 

My projects today seem to be a bit "green". I recently downloaded the new Luck of the Irish set over at Lettering Delights and wanted to give that a whirl. I was intending to make multiples of one card, but in the end, I did two different ones with the same die cut. 

This first one is an easel card inspired by the My Sheri Crafts- Happy St. Pat's Day challenge.
I made the easel card so that when it is flat, it's an A2 card size.  
I am also linking this card up to the Go Fish Challenge: Rainbows and the Luck of the Irish

Now, I still had that second Leprechaun die cut so I used that on this card. I used most of the same papers but a totally different look. 
This layout was inspired by the Peachy Keen Sketch this week. 

Here's How I did it...
Cards are A2 size...easel card cut to fit this size. 
Pattern papers from Reminisce Shenenigans line- all others from my scrap box
Leprechaun/layers at 4" for both.
Pot of gold/layers on the easel cards was sized to 1.25" 
Rainbow/layers to 4".
I inked all edges and added doodles with my gel and glitter pens. 
The sentiments are from My Creative Times I Believe in Leprechauns stamp set. 
The face is from Peachy Keens Wide eyed Kids Face stamp set.
