Hello friends, it’s Sandy Diller here today with a fun little card using the adorable Gnomes out for a Joy ride. I hope Santa doesn’t see them because he would put them on the naughty list for sure. I have to giggle each time I look at these little guys.
This is a 5″ X 7″ easel card so the base is 7″ X 10″ with a score in the center. Then another score line was added in the center of the card front so it can fold. Color was added to a third panel and then cut out using the Dotted Background die. The snowdrift was cut using the Long Adventure Edges and the added below the blue panel.
The panel with the snowdrift and sky were added to another white panel and then added to the card base – gluing only to the bottom portion of the front panel (below the fold).
The Jeep was cut and assembled. Using dies from the Train Cart set, lights were added. I cut the light strings from black and then added lights from white Soft Finish Cardstock that were colored with markers. The wreath is from the Reindeer die set and then decorated with Craft Dots. A bow was added just for fun. You can use any bow in your collection.
I just love these adorable gnomes so cut out 4 using different colors for their hats. For the driver I cut the steering wheel in half to make it appear that his beard was flying around the wheel. His hat was creased backward to make it look like it’s blowing in the wind.
For the gnome driving the jeep I cut the hands from the die set and then cut the finger off making a rounded hand to hold the wheel. A little pink ink was added to the hands
A greeting was stamped on a panel with another snowbank. A crease was added near the top to hold the front panel open. This panel was added to the inside panel of the card and attached only to the crease line. This card stands for display and is so much fun but it also folds flat for mailing.
Now the only thing left is to add the little details like the gifts falling from the jeep and the strings of lights.
Wishing all of you a most joyous holiday season and a happy new year,
