Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with a leprechaun hat card

Hello crafty friends,
Since it feels a bit too early to focus on Easter cards, I thought it would be fun to create something fun for St. Patrick's Day.   Card making with SVG files is an easy way to create and I always aim to share easy card making ideas with you. While four-leaf clovers are often the theme used on this type of card I really wanted to find something a little different.  Etsy is a treasure trove for all sorts of SVG files and that's exactly where I found the hat to go on this card.
Here is my step by step picture tutorial showing how the SVG pieces fit together after cutting them out with my electronic die-cutting machine (Cricut Explore Air/Maker, Silhouette Cameo, or even a Brother Scan N Cut
.
These are the pieces after being die cut on my electronic die cutting machine before I glued them on the white card panel.  I cut the white card panel to 4" x 5.25" before gluing down on a black card base, sized 4.25" x 5.5".
The foiled papers I used include:
Main hat color:  Emerald/Gold glossy foiled paper
Buckle:  Gold/Gold glossy foiled paper
Band:  Ebony/Gold glossy foiled paper
Shamrock:  Emerald/Emerald Starstruck foiled paper
Above is where I glued the 3 Emerald/Gold glossy pieces
Then I added the shamrock and the first two pieces of the band
I finished it off by adding the gold buckle and the ebony piece in the center to complete the die-cut image.  I then stamped my sentiment at the bottom.
That's all there is to it.  
Thanks so much for joining me today.  I hope that I have inspired you with this project and look forward to seeing your St. Patrick's day projects.
