Gnome Better Holiday

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog.  As challenge hostess for the month, I continue to issue the challenges.

Slimline Cards seem to be very popular at present, especially with a few companies have been releasing dies especially for the use of creating this style of card. I know I have become addicted to this style of card as have a few of my friends. So much so that I created a Facebook Group dedicated to Slimline Cards called Slimline Card Addicts.

  For our challenge this week create a Slimline card. The most popular sizes for Slimline Cards are either  8 ½ inches x 3 ½ inches or 4 inches x 9 inches and should fit into a standard business sized envelope.

For my card today, I used slimline dies from Trinity Stamps. 

To create my snowy background, I used a blending brush to apply Tumbled Glass; Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide inks. I then splattered some white paint over the background to look like snow.

I used the ground die from the Slimline Scenic Borders die set from white glitter cardstock which I added to the bottom of the card.

I decorated my card using the gnomes from Simon Says Stamps Gnome for the Holidays stamp set.

For the inside of my card I added the "GNOEL" from Honey Bee Stamps Gnome Place Like Home stamp set. The rest of the sentiment and images are all from the Simon Says Stamp stamp set.
