Sorry, no gnome puns this time. I looked but couldn’t find any I liked. Maybe the next card. But these cards are fun and fit in standard envelopes or you can make your own envelopes by following my envelope tutorial here.
You will need:
Paper Selection for the St Patricks Day Gnome Cards
These cards are green (duh). You need some scraps of other colors to make the gnomes. The base card paper should be two sided but doesn’t have to be. I included the overlay for the drinking card so you can put it on the front of the card if you need it. If you don’t, just hide it before you cut.
Cutting the St Patricks Day Gnome Cards
Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing. I used a gold glitter pen for the drinking card and a green one for the other. I used two of my fill in fonts for these cards. You can find out more about my fill in fonts here and see how to get all 6 of them for $1 too.
The cards themselves are easy to cut. The gnomes (which I included in the designs) are a little harder because of all the little parts. Make sure you keep track of them.
Assembling the St Patricks Day Gnome Cards
The gnome instructions are here. Assemble the gnomes before you start making the cards.
The cards themselves are easy to assemble. Start by re-creasing all the folds. Then attach the embellishments by looking at the pictures.
When making the twisted gatefold St Patricks Day Gnome card, the badge on the front is ONLY attached to the bottom right section of the card. Attach it at an angle or close the card and line it up straight. That way the card will open and close properly.
And your St Patricks Day Gnome Cards are done! Have a lucky holiday.
