Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Happy New Year! I wish you all a healthy and happy 2023. This is my first blog post for the new year. I can’t believe it. The next holiday to look forward to is Valentine’s Day. Below you will find a card using the Gnomes Dies, Dotted Background Die and the Love Sentiments Stamps from Joset Designs.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish 110 lbs to 7″ x 6″, score at 3 1/2″ and fold in half for a horizontal top fold card. (Mini Slimline)
Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish 110 lbs to 3 3/8″ x 5 7/8″. Apply Inks of your choice using colors Fuchsia, Lt. Red, Lt. Orange and Yellow. Set aside to dry.
Step 3 – Diecut Dotted Background using a scrap piece of cardstock to use as a stencil. Place it on top of the panel created in Step 2. Apply Texture Paste Translucent Gloss, remove the stencil. Quickly add some Soft Microfine Glitter Cool Diamond before the Paste dries. This will secure the Glitter. Let dry then adhere to the card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 4 – Diecut Gnomes using White Soft Finished Cardstock 110 lbs. Color in using any color medium of your choice. I used Copics. Be sure to only use the same colors for your background. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 5 – Stamp Love Sentiments using Ink in a Fuchsia color. Place the Gnomes on the card front first before stamping to make sure the positioning will not hide the sentiment. Once the sentiment is stamped adhere the Gnomes using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 6 – Optional – For added interest apply some Shimmer to the glasses and flower center using a Shimmer Pen.
This card can be used for several occasions by simply changing the colors and sentiment. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
