Happy St. Patty's Day! I saved my favorite St. Patty's Card for today. It's a cute punched Leprechaun and his pot of gold!

I had so much fun making this card! For those of you who know me, you know I love Punch Art! I just love the way someone can make something from a few different punches!

Here's the recipe for the Leprechaun:

Scallop Circle Punch-Really Rust
1/3"x 1" strip of Basic Black, trimmed to fit hat width
1/2"x1/2" Square of Summer Sun, punched with a 1/4" Square Punch to make the buckle

Here's the recipe for the Pot of Gold:

Wide Oval Punch-Basic Black
2 Word Window Punches-Basic Black; one is the top of the pot, the other is cut in half for the pot legs
10-12 1/4" Circle Punches-Summer Sun for the Gold

The "Gold" was then covered with Crystal Effects and Gold Fine Galaxy Glitter. The background texture was made using the *NEW* Texturz Plates Backgrounds 1.
