Today is St. Patrick’s Day! I had created this cute gnome as part of my March decor in my home, isn’t he the cutest? When I saw him yesterday I thought how cute would he be on a card, so I sat down to create him, and here he is….Mr. Lucky.
He’s super easy to recreate, you can crank these out super quickly!
I started with an 8-1/2″ X 5-1/2″ piece of Basic Black Cardstock, which I scored at 4-1/4″. I cut two pieces of Call Me Clover Cardstock for his hat at 2-3/4″ X 2-3/4″, and 7/8″ C 3-3/4″, then sponged it all around using my Sponge Daubers, and the coordinating Call Me Clover Classic Ink. For his nose, I used a medium-sized circle Layering Circles Dies using Petal Pink Cardstock, and sponged all around it with my Sponge Dauber and some Petal Pink Classic Ink.
For the hat band I cut a piece of Basic Black Cardstock at 1″ X 2-3/4″, and 1/2″ X 1/2″. The gold buckle is cut at 1″ X 1″ using the Gold Foil Paper. I stamped the “have a lucky day” greeting with Black Memento Ink on a scrap piece of Call Me Clover Cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.
Finally, the beard was cut out using Pumpkin Pie Cardstock with the largest of the Layering Ovals Dies, then ran it through the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder for some texture. Also, using the Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink I sponged the beard with my Stampin’ Sponge Dauber to create some additional texture.
I adhered the beard with my Liquid Multipurpose Glue, then added the nose with some Stampin’ Dimensionals, and finally added the hat with Foam Adhesive Strips, ensuring I “did not” add any strips in the area of the hat that would lay over the nose. I called this project done!
