Hello! It’s Kari here with a card using the brand new June Kit! This is absolutely Jam-packed with product and I am bursting with ideas! Today I made my very first inspired card…oh yes: I had to use those patriotic gnomes!

First I stenciled the layering flag stencil: stripes in red Telephone Box ink. Then I masked off the blue area with mint tape and inked that with Vegas Strip ink. I placed the star layer over the top and used embossing paste to add those stars. This adds some dimension and fun!

I set that panel aside to dry while I worked on the gnomes portion. I stamped them using the same Vegas Strip ink. Then I simply colored in spots with reds and yellows…with a little bit of grey on their beards.

If you are on instagram, you can check out my reel on how I made this card. I did not make a full video this time, but a short reel is so fun to see! (check me out @kariavan on Instagram).

Once the first panel was dry, I stamped on the sentiment and cut down the panel to add some black cardstock for the mat layer. Then I popped up those gnomes with foam tape. This was a really easy card, but so so fun!
