3 Mini Easter Cards/Tag | MFT Spring Gnomes

I have been in a pastel kind of mood lately, and that is perfect for easter cards. In the tutorial below I show how I made three mini easter cards using the Spring Gnomes stamp set by My Favorite Things. Well to be honest they are two cards and one tag but that would be a very long title.

With these cards I continue to use the Lemon Chiffon card stock and ink, and for being a person that doesn’t really like the color yellow the Lemon Chiffon has gotten a ot of playing time. I did look to see if I could use another color but at this time I didn’t have another pastel card that would work with the rest of the color scheme. Which I for once picked out first, so there was no going back on that. But I’m quite happy about my choice as it worked perfect for the tag and the Sunrise Radiating Rays Stencil I used with it.

I Carrot About You So Much Card

I love making small square cards, they are quick and cute. The first card measure 3 3/4″ by 3 3/4″. The size is based on the biggest of the stitched square STAX dies. For the base layer I used a lemon chiffon square cut with that die. I then used my blender brush, the Basket Weave stencil and the coordinating ink to give the layer some texture.

For the sentiment I used my Mini Misti to double stamp the sentiment “I Carrot About You So Much” onto some Neenah with the Lemon Chiffon ink. I double stamped to get a little bit of a darker color so that it would show up nicely. Then I cut it out with a die from the Blueprints 27 Die set. I ran the die through my die cutter twice to give the sentiment two flag ends. I then added my Gnome above the sentiment and sprinkled a couple of the carrot stamps around to add a little bit more to the card.

Juggling Spring Gnome Card

My second card is a 3″ by 3″ card. When I saw the little Gnome that was holding two eggs, I knew I wanted to make him a juggler. The easiest way to add the rest of the eggs in a circle was to give him a circular backdrop. So I cut a scalloped circle out of some Gift Wrap 6×6 paper. I choose a light blue green tone that wouldn’t take over to much. I added the circle on the top half of the card and a sentiment at the bottom. Then placed the gnome resting on top of the sentiment and the little eggs following the scalloped circle.

Radiating Tag

The last card, which really is a tag, is another ink blended one. I again used the Lemon Chiffon card stock and ink and blended with my blending brush. This time using the Sunrise Radiating Rays Stencil, placing it so that the gnome would have the sun in his back and the rays coming out all around him. I cut the tag out with the Tag Builder 5 dies. I finished off the card with a sentiment strip under the gnomes feet and a couple of length of string and ribbon to make the tag a little longer and get some more texture and color. Hope you liked my cards and tag and that you learned something new from my tutorial. Happy Easter!
