From Our Gnome to Yours!


Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Being a brand new month it is time to introduce our new challenge hostess which is Bonnie Sharp.

Today is World Cardmaking Day so my challenge to you is so easy ... MAKE A CARD .... any design, any shape!!

Today I am sharing a Christmas card I created using some freebie stamps I received when I purchased a magazine recently ... I just had to have these adorable gnomes. There are two different gnomes in the stamp set but you can a few different options when it comes to their hands which can make them all different.


Of course I love pop-up cards so I had to create one for these stamps. For this card I used the floating floor die from Karen Burniston's House & Fence Pop-up die set. The floating floor included in this die set can be used on it's own to create some wonderful fun scenes in your card.

I decorated the back panel of the card using birch trees from Lawn Fawn. The trees were a little short for the length of the back panel, so I placed the cutting board just above the bottom of the tree die when cutting so I could lengthen the trees to suit the card.


Here is another view of my pop-up card, this time taken at a different angle so you can see the floating floor a little better. 


Here is a close up of the inside of my card. I just love that sentiment ... "From our gnome to Yours!" I used one of the labels from the Katherine Label Pop-up die set for this sentiment.


For the front of my card I duplicated some of the elements that I used on the inside of my card. 

For the snowy hills I used one of the border dies from the Nature Edges die set. I also added the "Merry Christmas" sentiment which is from the Words Set 3 - Holiday die set.
