St. Patrick's Day postcards

I made fourteen postcards for my family and friends for St. Patrick’s Day. The photo in the center is in my top two favorites. I did not take a photo of the backside because it would have been tedious to mark out all of the names, but I have a stamp that mimics a vintage postcard top with “For correspondence” and “for address only”.
Here are the materials used:
Thick white cardstock
Three or four shades of green acrylic paint
A good luck stamp using Staz-On ink
A shamrock sticker
Green polka dot washi tape
Sakura gelly roll clear sparkly pen
Packaging tape (for my super high-tec front lamination)

I do own a laminator, but I did not want both sides laminated. I haven’t figured out a better way than clear packaging tape. Is packaging tape made in postcard size? I’ve thought about mod podge, but it would curl the paper. It already curled enough when I painted it, then I had them sit under two 30 pound weights. Still a little curved.


I really like these! They are very cute.

Oh, geez! Those are so cute… and you are totally putting the rest of us to shame, sending St Paddy’s cards. I have a hard time even getting Christmas cards sent! Impressive!
