Karen here today, sharing a card that would be totally appropriate for Valentine’s Day using the adorable Gnomes Dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. This gnome is too cute!
I just love that sweet little Gnome girl. To create this card, I started by cutting an 8-1/2″x11″ sheet of 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock in half. I folded one side to create a top fold card base. I cut the other side in half and cut the Gnome pieces. The pieces that are “on top” have 101mm Double Sided Adhesive on the back to make assembly a breeze.
I used mostly Distress Inks to color the sweet Gnome. The clothes are Blueprint Sketch and Kitsch Flamingo. The hair is Mustard Seed. I used a Copic E00 for the skin, G43 for the flower center and E53 for the flower.
I adhered the patterned cardstock as in the left-hand side of the picture above before cutting it with the Fitted Rectangles on the right-hand side. I then layered it up on a 4″x5-1/4″ piece of blue cardstock. Then I put the Gnome on the card and added some gems and a sentiment from the Bear Hugs set.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Craftily yours, Karen
