Fun Fold Cards with Doodlbug Design Happy Go Lucky Collection

Hi there! Top o' the Mornin' to ya! It's Tya here - and this post has got me feeling all Irish and so ready for St. Patty's Day! Many of you know that I absolutely love fun fold cards. I love creating them and even better giving them! There is something so fun about making a card with a fun pop up feature, or a fun design element that makes opening a fun fold card - well - So Much Fun! Today I want to show you the 3 cards that I did featuring Doodlebug's first ever St. Patrick's Day line - Happy Go Lucky and Doodlebug's textured cardstock. Come check out what I did!

I used my Silhouette machine for each of these cards. Have I told you how awesome the Doodlebug Textured cardstock cuts in my Silhouette? I love it! If you have an electronic die cutting machine - try the cardstock - it's the best!  I have included the link to the exact files I used from the Silhouette Shop in my post.
My first card is this fun one is called a  Circles Flip Swing Card . How fun are the little happy, smiling shamrocks peeking out from the swing out portion of the card.?

This next card is called a Center Easel Card. I loved adding the darling little freckled Leprechaun boy to this card. Isn't he cute? This card lays down flat but then using a sticker and a pop dot, you can make it so the easel portion pops up!

And finally we have this adorable card called a Scallop Center Step Card.  When I designed this card I really wanted to use the shamrock from the 4x4 cut out sheet , so I deleted the scallop portion of the cut file and added the shamrock circle. I did trim the 4x4 square down just a bit to fit the card base, but I love how I was still able to use most of the square.

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a peek. If you feel "lucky" to have that special someone in your life, whip up one of these fun and festive cards for them. I know with the combination of the cute Happy Go Lucky Products and the fun folds that are on these cards, your recipient will totally know how you feel. Have a wonderful day!
