Made Especially For You Challenge, St. Patty's Day & Twine!

Pin It
This week at Made Especially For You the challenge is to make a St. Patrick's Day Card with twine. I took a gnome stamp and cut off his pointy hat and adhered a Leprechaun's hat instead from Lawn Fawn's Hats Off to You. I made a background with Gel a Tin's Love Knots stamp by heat embossing it with clear embossing powder and running distress inks over it. Then I ran it through my Cuttlebug using a nestabilities die. Wrapped some green and white baker's twine around a piece of My Mind's Eye Lime Twist cardstock and tied a bow through a button. The sentiment was stamped with Lawn Fawn's Smitty's ABCs.
