Good Morning and Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I wanted to make a St Patrick’s Day Gnome card to celebrate the day, so I combined the Stampin’ Up! Lucky Clover stamp set with the Gnomes dies and the Friendly Gnomes stamp set for today’s card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I made a book fold Sahara Sand card base, adhering the end with liquid glue. I stamped a panel of Pear Pizzazz with the small clover stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Lucky Clover stamp set using Mossy Meadow ink. I applied some Mossy Meadow ink to the ends with a sponge dauber and adhered it to a Mossy Meadow mat before adhering it to the left end.
I adhered a panel of Happy Forest Friends designer series paper to a Mossy Meadow mat and adhered it to the main front panel. I stamped the little clovers from the Stampin’ Up! Lucky Clover stamp set all over another Pear Pizzazz panel and cut it out with the Gnomes at die. I applied Mossy Meadow ink around the ends with a sponge dauber. Using the Gnome dies, I cut the beard from Cajun Craze, the nose from Petal Pink and the pants from Soft Suede. I adhered the pants to the card with liquid glue and the nose and hat to the beard with liquid glue. I adhered the rest of the gnome to the card with dimensionals.
I stamped the little squirrel from the Friendly Gnomes photopolymer stamp set in Early Espresso ink and colored it with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. I fussy cut the squirrel and adhered it to the card with dimensionals. I wrapped a length of Sahara Sand ribbon around the book end and tied a knot.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment and clover from the Stampin’ Up! Lucky Clover stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower and leaves from the Friendly Gnomes stamp set in Early Espresso and colored them with Calypso Coral and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stamping’ Seal.
I don’t think gnomes are leprechauns, but I see them all over the place this St. Patrick’s Day. The Gnome dies will be back in stock soon, so there’s plenty of time to make Spring garden gnome cards. But today is St. Patrick’s Day, so I need to put the Stampin’ Up! Lucky Clover stamp set away until next year – but it’s a great stamp set, so I had to pull it out one last time to spread a little more luck! Have a great weekend!
