St. Patrick’s Day Care Package — FMS476

It’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our hostess is Linda Callahan, our fun friend from New York, who is one talented card maker. Take a look at this fun sketch:

My college girl is in the throes of midterm exams and with no spring break this year, it’s all a little much. I thought she could use a care package and since St. Patrick’s day is right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to use that theme. Besides, with a name like O’Neill, I think we’re required to celebrate this day!

I started with a card. Since I don’t have any St. Patrick’s Day stamps, I had to get creative and since the care package is mostly filled with treats, I thought some mint chocolate chip ice cream would fit in with the green theme.

I used the cute Sweet Ice Cream stamp set and coordinating punch for the fun ice cream and the Word Wishes dies for the sentiment. Some linen thread was used for the diagonal stripes in the sketch. And some Ice Cream Corner dsp was adhered to the card base.

I used some of the remaining dsp to decorate the box. I printed out some shamrocks on some Garden Green card stock and used some old letter dies to cut out the “Love You.” I included some candies and a t-shirt with the O’Neill coat of arms, which I found on Etsy. Hopefully this will be a fun thing for her to open and she’ll know we’re thinking of her.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch. We love to see what you make as we browse the gallery each week. Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
