Gnome Christmas Card

Hello! I am so glad I am off work tonight that I was able to create a card to participate on a challenge that I often miss.

I see gnomes frequently this Christmas season so I thought of using my newly acquired stamp set for this challenge. I stamped the image several times, on Neenah Solar White cardstock and different patterned papers from Lawn Fawn Knit Picky 6x6 pad. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink for stamping. I colored the face, hands, beard and belt of the gnome using Copic marker. I fussy cut the images. This is a good way of using my scraps since I strategically stamped the image on the patterned paper. I lined the sides of the fussy cut images with a Memento Tuxedo Black ink marker. I paper piece this to the stamped gnome on the white cardstock.

Working on the background, I am using the LF Outside In Stitched Scalloped die. I die cut two blue cardstocks and a white cardstock using this die. I created the slopes using the LF Stitched Hillside Borders die.

For the back panel, I created the snow using the LF Ready, Set, Snow Shaker Add-on. I die cut a glittered paper for this. I used the positive die cut to adhere the snow die cuts adding extra snow circles to the empty areas.

I adhered the left-over die cut of the blue slope on a double adhesive tape. I trimmed this off, leaving me with a piece that will fit the blue slope that I will be using for the scene. I adhered this to that slope, then poured LF Chunky Glitter to this area. I burnished the glitter to the adhesive but somehow I end up having lots of loose glitter on my work space, and on me.

For the white snow slope, I heat embossed a sentiment from LF Frosty Fairy Friends stamp set. I stamped this using Versafine Onyx Black ink, poured clear embossing powder to the area, then heat embossed it.

I layered this scene panel on a LF Knit Picky patterned paper. I added a white pompom to the top of the gnome's hat to give it more a feel of Christmas. I also applied Tonic Aqua Shimmer pen to the gnome's hat.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day.
