Gnome for Christmas

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I have a Gnome themed Christmas card to share with you today using mostly stamps and dies from Mama Elephant.

To create the background of my card, I used a side folding blue card base. I then applied Broken China & Faded Jeans Distress Oxide inks to the top portion of the card.

I die cut the Mama Elephant Ornate House Grid die from red cardstock and just the roof area from white glitter cardstock. I splattered white paint over the red house and the blue background.

I blended Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink to a piece of white cardstock and adhered it using foam tape behind the red house.

I stamped, cut and colored the gnomes from the Mama Elephant Little Gnome Agenda stamp set and adhered them to each of the openings.

I combined sentiment stamps from Trinity Stamps Gnome for the Holidays & Honey Bee Stamps Gnome Place Like Home stamp sets to stamps the "Gnome for Christmas" sentiment in the rectangle opening of the house. 

For the inside of the card I added a white and red rectangle panel.

I stamped the "GNOEL" three times which is from the Honey Bee Stamps Gnome Place Like Home stamp set and the "Merry Christmas" from the Honey Bee Stamps Santa's Village stamp set.

To finish off the card I added two more gnomes to the panel.
