Happy St Patrick's Day - Again!

Happy Friday!   It's Jeanne posting today with another St. Patrick's Day card.  This one use the St. Patrick's Day Phrase and More and the St. Patrick's Day Cupcake dies.
I wanted to do something a bit different so I went for a stand-up easel card.
I started with an 8 1/2 x 5 1/5 inch piece of green card stock scored in the middle.
On the bottom section I very lightly drew a line across it at the 2 1/8 inch mark (halfway between the score line and the bottom).  The line should be erased after die cutting.
I placed the third largest stitched circle die equal distance from each side with the pencil line halfway up and down (centered on my pencil line).  I did not measure - I just eyeballed it.  Then I ran it through my Big Shot using a small plate I have.
This cuts out just half the circle.  I then scored each side from the circle to the edge.
When you fold, it gives you the easel.
Next I cut my pieces from gold, green, black and white.
And I assembled them.
I cut three panels from green, black and patterned paper.  The green is 5 1/2 x 2 1/8 inches.  The others are 1/8 inch smaller in both directions.
I added the black panel on top of the green.  I also had to snip the Happy St Patrick's Day apart to fit on my panel.
And finally I put it all together.  Although the card looks a little complicated, it is actually quite easy.


Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you have a fun and creative weekend!
