I’m not a person who celebrates St. Patrick’s Day beyond wearing a bit of green (sad, I know). So when I received so many requests for a St. Patrick’s Day card, I was baffled. Really? St. Patrick’s Day? Alright then…
So this is my version of a St. Patrick’s Day card. :) It suggests the holiday, but it isn’t blatantly obvious. Hope you enjoy!
Oh, and this week I tried out the Martha Stewart Crafts Simple Circle Cutter. Thanks so much for all the tips! They definitely came in handy! I think the general consensus is this: Temporarily adhere the paper your cutting to your cutting mat, make sure the blade is seated all the way into the circle cutter, and find the direction and speed that is most comfortable for you while firmly holding down the circle cutter. I did find that I was slightly more successful if I rotated the blade clockwise and rather quickly. But it might be different for others.
All in all, I think you just need practice to master a new tool. I remember having some frustrations when I was first using my Coluzzle, too. But with time, all those concerns eased up and now I love my Coluzzle. I think I might like the Martha Stewart Simple Circle Cutter as well. :)
CHALLENGE: Create a St. Patrick’s Day card. Upload your creation to the TwoPeas gallery and it will appear at the bottom of this week’s Finally Friday page. :)
