String Bean Leprechauns

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Today I have a couple of St. Patrick's Day cards to share with you... These little cuties are part of the String Bean Leprechauns bundle from Melondeadz 
that I won!! :)

They are colored with Copics and on this card I printed the image twice so I could pop up the hat, shamrock and shoes with foam tape for more dimension. 
On this card I decided to go with a mint green & gold color combo and I added some distressing- I wanted it to be completely different from my first card...  
AND I merged two images together- just enough so the leprechauns would be
holding hands!

Well, that's all for now... thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Great St. Patty's cards Tammy. Both images are adorable, but I think I like card 1 the best. With his little mustache and four leaf clover, he is too cute. Thanks for joining us at the Open-Minded Crafting "luck" challenge. Good Luck to you!

They did turn out very different, Tammy, but they're both so fun and sweet! Nice merger of images. I do like your own made flowers too, you're great at making them.
