Gnome For The Holidays
Hello, and happy Sunday! It's quite blustery here in Southeast Missouri, which makes doing much outside almost impossible. So, I'm inside today and I decided to create a Christmas card using the theme from Christmas Kickstart Challenge and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. To create my card I started by layering some whimsical patterned paper from the Pebbles Welcome Christmas 6x6 paper pad onto my A2 card base. I then stamped, colored and fussy cut the gnomes from the Stampendous Holiday Gnomes stamp set using my Copic markers. I stamped, colored and die cut the mountains from the Crafter's Companion Little Snowmen stamp and die set. Using a stitched sloping border die I die cut a snow drift using white cardstock and edged it with some distress ink in Salty Ocean. I cut the focal panel down to match the sketch and inked it up with more Salty Ocean and added a few snowflakes to the background using the Little Snowmen stamp set again. I adhered the snowdrift and the mountains directly to the panel and then popped the gnomes up using Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the gnome stamp set, matted it onto some forest green cardstock, and popped it up under the gnomes. For a finishing touch I added some Nuvo glitter drops in clear around the gnomes and the snowflakes for some additional shine and shimmer. Thank you for stopping by my blog today!
