I don't know if it's the colors involved or the whimsical nature of the holiday but I love making St. Patrick's Day paper crafts. It may be my favorite of all the holidays! Today I am sharing a shaped card hat looks like a Leprechaun hat over at the Core'dinations blog along with the tutorial on how to make it!
Leprechaun Hat Card Supplies:
- Glitter Adhesive Cardstock
- Tillie Dot 6 X 6 Paper Pad
- Core Essential Cardstock - Darks
- Sand-It Gadget & Dust Buddy
- Silhouette Cameo
Now on to the fun part of how to make this card!
Step 1: Cut out a Leprechaun Hat shape and one in it's mirror image. I used my Silhouette Cameo for the cut and you can find the file here. The file will give you most of the pieces you need to cut out the hat and the accessories. For the piece that will be your back score a line about 1/4 inch from the top of it.
Step 2: Add adhesive to the scored part and stick your two pieces together. The scored part will now allow the back of the card to fold back.
Step 3: Cut out a stripe from the black Tillie Dot cardstock to be the sash on the hat. Sand it to bring out the core.
Step 4: Cut out a Shamrock out of the Tillie Dot cardstock also but don't sand it this time. Add the sash to the card. Cut out a belt buckle from the Gold Adhesive Cardstock. Add that and the Shamrock to the sash.
Step 5: Cut out a sentiment from the Gold Adhesive Cardstock and attach it to the card. I also used a Silhouette cut file for this and you can find it here. Outline the whole card with faux stitching or dots.
