Happy Easter Tri-fold Card

This is my first go at making a trifold card and I love it.  It took awhile to decide what I was going to put in each little space, but once I got it all figured, it went quickly and I really like how it turned out.  I actually made 2 of these cards~~lots of little cutting and tiny pieces~~and I inked each piece!!  

The files/sets used are from My Scrap Chick:
**Trifold Shutter Cards
**Rainy Day Kids (sun and cloud)
**Scallop Bag & Card  (bow)
**Easter Title & Bunnies  
**Spring Faces
**Spring Treat Bags (tulip flowers)
**Birthday Bears (happy) 

**Always take a look at what is really inside your sets and piece sets together.**

Kiss Me I'm Irish Card

 Here is a cute St. Patrick's Day card I made using files from
My Scrap Chick~~The files used are:

Happy St. Pat's Day Card

A Pinterest inspired card I made using files from My Scrap Chick, (the original design is HERE).  I used the following files to design this 5" square card:
**4 leaf Clover Album
**Lucky U Tag
**Curved Bracket Card

The stamp is from Stampin' Up!'s Kiss Me set.  The white stitching is done with a white gel pen.  I added some small white brads to the horseshoe, inking on the edges, twine and a few sticky gems.

Leprechaun Hat Card

I saw a card on Pinterest the other day and just fell in love with it!  I wanted to try and recreate it using cut files from My Scrap Chick.  You can see where I got my inspiration to make this beautiful card HERE. (funny, she has the same name as me!)
Here is my card:

These are the files I used from My Scrap Chick to make this 6"h x 5"w card:

4 Leaf Clover Album (large clover)
Lucky Rainbow Bears (Hat-2 welded together to form the card shape, and small clover)
Rose (flower)
Buckles & Borders (lacey design behind hat band)
Butterfly Bag & Card (butterflies)
Leaf Designs (leaf flourish)

Here are some of the embellishments I used:
**The banner is from my eCAL programs shape library (banner 3) and I added the text and did a print & cut
**I did a lot of brown inking and a little green on the edges of my cuts.
**The butterfly is 3 layers with the top layer being a clear acetate with white dots on it.
**The winding string is white hemp cord hot-glued down in places. 
**I stitched along the edges of the top piece of the card with my sewing machine using white thread.
**The large clover has a clear bubble cap from Epiphany Crafts in the center.
**Pop dots are used behind things to add dimension.
**The paper I used is from g.c.d studios called Daydream Ensemble.  It has a fabric-like texture and feel to it.  I also used AC Cardstock.  
**Curling the edges of the clovers and flower adds more dimension.

Lucky Pot of Gold

This cute St. Patty's Day treat box was made using files from My Scrap Chick.  I used Spooky Night Trio and Lucky Rainbow Bears. It is about 6" tall and 6" wide.  The coins are embossed with the 'Textured Script' embossing folder.  The large clover is embossed with 'D'Vine Swirl' folder.  I welded my "LUCKY" letters together and then made a shadow so it had a background.  Fill it up with gold coins or any gold wrapped candy or chocolate.  Would make a really cute table decoration or a gift for someone special.

3 Drawer dresser box

 Today I'm sharing a dresser box I made using the Sweet Nugget Matchboxes and the Scrollwork Frames from My Scrap Chick. I made the 3 drawers as big as possible and the whole thing is 5 1/2" tall, so it's a nice size and super sturdy! It is just 3 drawers stacked and glued on top of each other. I actually started with an idea to make it a makeup/girly look and was going to use the adorable Glamour Girl set with a mirow on top, but somehow it turned into this look instead.....vintage?? I love the paper (it's the little things by and think it turned out really cute!
