Who doesn't want a bit of the Irish luck? I, for one, love St. Patrick's Day! Love the whole pot of gold at the end of the rainbow thing. When this set was released I wanted to make a card and here is what I came up with!

SVG Collection Used

Charm and Chance SVG Kit


Here are the exact shapes, sizes, and colors I used. Size to dimensions shown below with "Keep Proportions" checked in the Shape Properties window, unless otherwise noted.

Chance and Charm Set (Cupcake Topper) Size Color
gold.svg 3 in. Gold
red.svg 3 in. Red
green.svg 3 in. Green
orange.svg 3 in. Orange
light_blue.svg 3 in. Blue
black.svg 3 in. Black
green.svg (shamrock only, 5) Various sizes Green
Basic Shapes Library
rectangle (for sentiment) 4.25 x 1.5 Black
rectangle (for sentiment) 4.25x 1.25 Craft Cardstock
rectangle (card base) 8.5 x 5.5 Craft Cardstock
rectangle (card base layer) 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 Black
rectangle (embosss with cuttlebug) 5.25 x 4 Green


  • Cut all pieces in colors listed and assemble image. Emboss background layer. Add any doodling or extras if desired. Inking edges and texture can make the difference between a good project and a great project.
  • Fold card base. Run green layer through cuttlebug with folder of your choice. Attach layers of cardstock to card base. Stamp sentiment on paper strip. Attach to front of card

Design Tips

Cheryl Becker - SVGCuts Design Team Artist

  1. I used a wobble from under the pot of gold image. You can use a simple pop dot if you don't have those. I would check them out though, cause they make you little image wobble and it is really cute on a card or project.
  2. Use extras, like gel pens, textures, embellishments, etc.
  3. Use vivid color papers.
  4. Make sure paper layers are straight. Nothing worse than crooked sides and corners!

Can't wait for St. Patty's Day! We do the festival every year. This year I am going to make lots of little pins with this image and hand out to friends. Thinking outside the box...doesn't just need to be a card. Give this a shot though, anyone would love to get a card like this in the mail. Let your personality show through.
