Gnomes are back for a quick visit this week. A big thank you from the gnomes and I to Brian King for dedicating an entire post to Ann’s World of Gnomes last week. I can see from all the viewers that you are curious about gnomes. Today I have 3 jolly gnomes who just can’t wait to share the season with you.

Using the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper as a background makes this card very simple to put together. Don’t you love the white and silver patterns? You can ink them with a sponge or brayer or just use them in their natural state (like I did in this card). I do like the soft images on the flip side but these hand-drawn images in silver foil are phenomenal. You get 48 double-sided sheets of 6″ x 6″ paper. There are 12 different designs and you receive 4 of each design. Don’t limit yourself to winter cards. Think about some anniversary (25th year) cards too!

Your wait is over. Here is my card with more jolly gnome-fun.

CREATING PIECES & PARTS

Gnomes

  • Stamp 3 gnomes using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock.
  • Color gnomes using Real Red Stampin’ Blends.
  • Fussy cut gnomes.
  • OPTIONAL: Add Snowflake sequins to gnome hats.

Sentiment

  • Stamp sentiment from Christmas Gleaming stamp set on Basic Black cardstock using white craft ink (or Versamark). Before stamping put a small piece of tape over the ‘&’.
  • Heat emboss with white embossing powder.
  • Die-cut with Tasteful Labels die.
  • Add black Dimensionals to the back of the label.

Pine Boughs

  • Die-cut 2 of the 3-tip pine boughs from Mossy Meadow using the Beautiful Boughs dies.

ASSEMBLY

  • Layer as shown.
  • Add a twine bow to finish off the lower right corner of the sentiment. I used retired Real Red twine from the Country Club multi-pack. TIP: With thin twine, it is easy to make a triple string bow without adding too much bulk.
  • Customize the message insert and envelope by adding some snowflake stamping using the Snowflake Wishes stamp set and silver metallic ink (I used Delicata Silver Metallic ink) or use Versamark and silver embossing powder.

I hope you enjoyed these 3 jolly gnomes and take a good look at the Feels Like Frost DSP.
