Lucky Horseshoe

Today I'm sharing with you a treat bag for St. Patrick's Day.  You can find this item in the silhouette store.  It's item #56050 - 3D Lucky Horseshoe with Handle Box by Snapdragon Snippets.

The main bag was cut using green cardstock from Michael's.

The word "lucky" was cut using Recollections metallic paper pad.  This paper pad went on clearance during the holidays.  For the shadow, I used the same green cardstock for the main bag.

The horseshoe was cut in three different images.  The shadow was cut in a darker green cardstock.  The gold dots was cut from the same recollections metallic paper pad.  The top layer was cut using black cardstock.  (I apologize for the picture as it was starting to snow again while taking this photo outside.  That is why you see splots on the black).  I used vellum for the window.  I didn't put anything in it, so that is why you can't see through it.

I used Metallic Gold ribbon by Celebrate It from Michael's.

I sure enjoyed making this.  It was very easy to assemble.  Thanks for stopping by and visiting.  Have a wonderful Saturday!
