St. Patrick's Day Gnome Card



At the beginning of the year, I challenged myself to use this gnome for every season and holiday throughout the year. So far, I have used it on winter, Valentine's Day, The 4th of July and now a St. Patrick's Day card. From the moment I saw this gnome die, I just knew I wanted to make a St. Patrick's Day card with him. I used Authentique St. Patrick's Day themed papers for this card. You really can't go wrong when it comes to Authentique papers! I used an embossing folder to make a Swiss Dot pattern on the white paper, which made it so the oval background would have some interest and texture to it. Additionally, I used a Tim Holtz clover punch to make the smaller clovers. To make the larger clover I die cut 4 small hearts and arranged them to look like a 4-leaf clover. To top it all off, I added a sparkly gold enamel dot in the center of the large shamrock. I used a computer generated sentiment to complete the card.




I was flattered that Authentique chose this card to be included in their April 2020 Fan Feature.
