Irish box card

I made this for the FCCB Monday challenge, "Hip to be Square".  The requirements are a square card and the colors green and gold/yellow. 

I used George and my gypsy and made a St. Patty's day card/box.   If you would like the gypsy file please leave a comment with your email and I will email you the file.

This is the inside of the card.  Pretty simple, I just keep the plastic that the cartridges come in and cut it to make the window. 

Here is a pic of the inside of the box.  It turned out really cute, I plan on filling the box with little Hershey gold bars and give it to my girls' teachers for St Patty's Day.

I used Paper doll dress up for the hat and vest on the bear.  Simply charmed was used for the pot, gold and both four leaf clovers.  The font is Storybook and the sentiment is handwritten.  I made the bear on my gypsy using George and then pieced it together and inked the edges around all the pieces.  I drew his face on with pencil and then colored it in with a sharpie and a white gel pen.  I also used the white gel pen around his hat and vest.  I used glitter glue for the gold in the pot and scattered on the ground.  And stickles for the clover.

Now go make something cute and link it up here on FCCB.  Can't wait to see what you come up with!  :)
