Whew, it's Friday! It's been a long week and work has been crazy and I've been struggling with my sleep. What better way to relax and get over it all? Craft! I am in the process of making my Christmas cards for next month. This card was created for the latest Addicted to Stamps And More, The Male Room, and the Freshly Made Sketches card challenges. To create my card I started by die cutting the adorable Li'l Gnome from Simon Says Stamp using some white cardstock for the base and patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Oh What Fun 6x6 paper pad. I colored the beard and nose using my Copic markers. I then die cut a gorgeous Nordic pierced edge circle from The Greetery using white cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp's Gnome For The Holidays stamp set using Gina K Designs black ink. I stamped the pine trees from Inkadinkado's Trees stamp set using Stampin' UP's Old Olive ink. Using some green cardstock from Hobby Lobby I cut an A2 panel to completely cover my white card base. I then layered some papers from the same My Mind's Eye Oh What Fun paper pad onto the card and then added the focal panel directly on top. I added some foam tape to the back of my gnome and popped him up off of the card for a final touch. Thank you for stopping by my blog today!

I love your gnome too, what a fun card. :)
Aww, what a charmingly delightful card. Love the abundance of green and how the vee shapes in the circle die's border design echo those in the branches of the (white) holly and berry print paper.
