Gnome Way Wiper Card

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing another Wiper Card using Mama Elephant's Wiper Surprise Die set.

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

My card started with the Mushroom House from Lawn Fawn. I was debating whether to created a Mushroom House Shaped card or add the mushroom onto a card of some sort. Well on it's own the mushroom house is fairly smallish and I wanted to add a few other elements to my card so I decided to create a wiper card using Mama Elephant's Wiper Surprise die set.

I die cut two white panels from the main die from the Wiper Surprise die. For the back panel I colored the background using various blue Distress Oxide Inks.

For the front panel I used the grass border included in the Lawn Fawn Mushroom Border die set to die cut about half way up the panel. I also place the mushroom border above the grass border so I could adhere that behind the grass. I colored the grass panel using to different green Distress Oxide inks. I then added shading to the mushroom border, die cut the top of the mushrooms from red cardstock and adhered this border behind the grass. 

As the Mushroom House was going to hide three of the mushrooms on the Mushroom Border, I cut them off so I could add them to other parts of the card.

Lawn Fawn did release a cute Gnome themed stamp set when they released the Mushroom House etc. However as I already had a number of Gnome stamp sets (one not used until this card was made), I decided not to buy it. The Gnomes added to my card are from a Hunkydory stamp set called Gnome Way! which I think is now discontinued.

I added the gnome which is shovelling dirt to the tab which pops up from behind the mushroom house when you pull the sides of the card.

The  back of the card is a great place to add a panel for a personal handwritten sentiment. I also added  a gnome image and sentiments to this panel.

The gnome, sign & "Love You Gnomie" sentiment are all from the Hunkydory Stamp set and the other sentiment is from SugarPea Designs Gnome Sweet Gnome Stamp set.
