Celebrate St. Paddy's Day with "Cheers to Good Luck!"

Raisin Boat just released a new set for St. Patrick's Day called "Cheers to Good Luck!" It is on sale this week for $11.99 (rental members pay $9.59). It comes with fun leprechauns, a pot of gold and one big beer mug! What I really like about this set is that it can be used not only for the holiday, but also for good luck and birthday wishes, too. You'll get so much more use out of it due to its image combination. Here's a few fun cards for birthdays and other occasions.

White Liquid Applique for the foam makes this card 3-D!

Tip: Add white Liquid Applique to add dimension and realistic qualities to the beer foam!

This card was inspired by Amber Daigre's card using Strokes of Wisdom,
which was recently published in Paper Crafts magazine.

Send some luck with the adorable pot of gold. After being inspired by a recent card designed by Amber Daigre and published in Paper Crafts magazine, I added a rainbow using our set, "Strokes of Wisdom" stamp set to the pot of gold. I love how this turned out. (Amber used the same set to create a "thank you card").

Tip: Add Glitter Liner in gold to the coins to make them stand out and sparkle!

If you are looking to just send some good old-fashion Irish wishes to a friend, here are some ideas....

Line them up and color one green for a "Go Green" card on
St. Paddy's Day! Highlight the beer using a 2-color approach.

Who doesn't like a little green beer on St. Paddy's Day?! This is just a fun card to make for those who like to celebrate with a little brew.

Here's a few more that are certainly not short on character with these leprechauns!

Use our Sign Uni-Ball White Pen to make polka dot pattern paper.

Add sparkle to the clovers using our Glitter Liner in Gold, Emerald and Peridot.

Create a scene in a box to highlight the little things
like this sparkly clover.

Tip: Use Viva Decor Glitter Liner in Gold, Emerald and Green to make the coins and clovers sparkle! These three colors of Glitter Liner are on sale now at 20% off.

I had so much fun with our new set, "Cheers to Good Luck!" I love to color with Copics and this card lets you do that. You can get creative with the characters' outfits and faces and the beer mug by using different methods of coloring. The best part is that this is not a set that can only be used in March. It's one you can use all year long!
