A SUPER Cute Gnome Card!

Today we are serving up a super cute gnome card using one of the adorable greetings from a different gnome set. Can you EVER have too many gnomes? And Jamie used the sweetest color combination of rose and gold putting a fresh twist on a traditional layout. We LOVE it!

First, she stamped our William Winter Gnome on white with black VersaFine and colored him in with pink, brown and a touch of green Prisma Color Pencils. She then cut him out with the coordinating die and added Unicorn Stickles to his hat, setting him aside to dry completely. PRO TIP: Stickles smear so always give them plenty of extra drying time!

Then Jamie made herself some “custom” patterned paper by cutting out a circle using the Nested Circle Small Stitch Die Set and a rectangle using the Nested Tag Stitch and stamped them both with the Field of Stars Background stamp using Rose from the Color Fuse #5 set. Then she used the Nested Circle Scallop with Holes Die to cut a kraft colored scalloped circle to match the stripes in William’s hat. PRO TIP: Pull colors from your focal element to use in layers and accents to keep the sense of visual “motion” on your projects.

She put the circles together and added William over the top. Then she stamped that cute tongue-in-cheek sentiment onto her rectangle tag in black and tucked it behind William.

To finish her card, Jamie cut a piece of striped paper with the largest die from the

Rectangle Small Stitch Die Cut Set, layer this onto slightly larger white card stock then popped the whole thing onto a kraft card base. For even more textural interest, Jamie added a strip of burlap to the card and added the William assembly over it with dimensional adhesive. PRO TIP: If you like the textural look and don’t have this sort of material handy, use an embossing folder to create your own.
