Irish Whimsy

This week our feature is Whimsy Irish Elements by Cupcake Cutiees. It is just what you need to get you in the mood for St. Patrick’s Day. This is our second week for the current challenge: flowers. Enter for a chance to win  Blooming Friends Digital Stamp Set by Sanqunetti Design. Entries will be accepted until March 2nd, midnight. 

This set has so many possibilities!! I decided to start crafting for 
St Patrick's Day.  I am not Irish but this is still one of my favorite holidays...just wear green, smile and say, "The Leprechaun's did it!!"
I love to send St. Patrick Day cards one expects them and everyone loves surprises! 

I decided to try a fancy fold card: double slanted easel card. The results are awesome yet it is really easy to craft. The directions are on Splitcoast Stampers. 

This little shamrock fella holds the two sides in place.
Here is another view of this double slanted easel card.
