Karen here. I’m having so much fun with the new release from Joset. Today I made a couple simple and sweet holiday cards using the Gnomes and the Holiday Train die sets. Love putting together these designs from Joset. It reminds me of playing with paper dolls when I was a kid – so fun and relaxing!
To start these cards, I cut two card fronts from 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. I also cut a 6″x6″ piece of patterned cardstock in a 4″ inch strip and a 2″ inch strip. I adhered them to the card fronts in a diagonal way. On one of them, I also cut a 3/4″ strip of Soft Finish Cardstock and stamped a sentiment on it from the stamp set in the Classic Christmas Set. For the other, I stamped the sentiment right on the card front. Then I die cut one with a Stitched Rounded Rectangle and the other with a Stitched Indented Rectangle die.
For the Gnome girl, I cut her dress and hat with red cardstock, and her shoes, collar and bows with green cardstock. I colored her skin with a Copic E00 and her hair with a Copic Y23. I added a few presents as embellishments. The hearts are also in the Gnomes dies, and I thought they were the perfect little addition in the corner.
The Holiday Train is cut with a combination of 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock, green cardstock and Kraft Cardstock. (The darker brown has Distress Ink in Tea Dye added to it. The fun “trick” to making assembly easy is to add 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to the pieces that are on top. What a great way to turn the die cut into a sticker.
So easy; so fun. Thank you for stopping by today.
Craftily yours, Karen
