Luck of the Irish Two Day Blog Hop (March 17th Day 1)

Luck of the Irish 2 day Blog Hop.
March 17th at 11:30 a.m. through March 18th at 11:30 p.m.

Welcome to the very first Luck of the Irish 2 day Blog Hop.

If you have started on this blog you’re on the right track. If not, and just lucked up on this blog, you can go back to the beginning HERE and hop along with us.

We're so excited to being doing this hop, and we have a fabulous line up with some very talented folks. There will be lots of fun projects, along with some great blog candy, and an AMAZING grand prize for this hop.

This hop runs from Mar. 17 - Mar 18, so you have plenty of time to make it all the way through the hop. Check out each blog and see what BLOG CANDY you could possibly WIN!! Come back both days to see some new projects.

For this card, we wanted the rainbow to have an organic feel.  To achieve this we have the ribbon put on in a loose manor to appear to be cascading into the pot of gold. 

To make this card you will need the following

  • 1 7" x 10" piece of white card stock folded in half
  • 1 4.5" x 6.5" piece of green card stock
  • 1 4.5" x 3" piece of patterned card stock (we used  shamrock patterned from Joann's)
  • 1 4.5 " Piece of green ribbon
  • 1 Pot of Gold SVG
  • Green glitter glue
  • orange glitter glue
  • Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple ribbon of your choice
  • Adhesive

Here is the complete line up
