MEASUREMENTS

  • Basic Black cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″
  • Thick Whisper White cardstock:
    • 5-1/4″ x 4″ for card panel
    • 5″ x 3-3/4″ for message panel

CREATE

  • Stamp the gnome in the center of the card panel using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
  • Grab a black journal pen, ruler, circle dies, or a template and begin connecting lines around the stamped gnome image. TIP: Use the Essentials Paper-Piercing templates from 2011 or 2012 if you still have them for the spacing on the dots. Otherwise. Just use the ruler or eye-ball it. Remember, it is all good!
  • Repeat some of the geometric shape doodles on the inside message panel and the envelope.
  • Layer and admire.

This is so much fun. No 2 will be alike. Try this with other images.
