My project today is a fun and colorful Gnome Christmas card made using the new Rubbernecker Gnome Couple set paired with the Evergreen Trees, Cardinals, Rectangle Combo #3, Sun Moon and the Christmas lights from the Globe Tree set. I had fun creating this scene with the Gnome couple decorating the Christmas tree. I couldn’t resist getting Mrs. Gnome tangled up in the string of lights.
The Frame and Card Base
- Cut the Rectangle Combo die out twice, once in red and again in white.
- Secure the white layer in between the two red layers and attach together using double stick tape.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.
The Gnome Couple
- Cut the gnome pieces out using multiple colors of cardstock.
- Color Mr. Gnome’s beard using Pumice Stone ink and Mrs. Gnome’s braids using Wild Honey ink.
- Assemble the hat pieces and attach them to the hat bases using glossy accents.
- Secure the gnome pieces together using glossy accents.
The Christmas Tree and Lights
- Cut the tree using green cardstock.
- Use red, green, blue and yellow cardstock to cut the Christmas lights.
- Cut a piece of metallic silver string to use for the tree lights.
- Attach the lights to the string using glossy accents and set aside to dry. Note: I use the reverse tweezers from my Garden Tool Kit to work with small die cut pieces like the lights.
Finish the Scene
- Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the gnomes and tree and attach to the card base.
- Attach the start of the tree light string to the gnome on the left using glossy accents.
- Wind the string around the tree a couple times, securing in place with glossy accents and then continue winding it around the gnome on the right and back around to the front lower portion of the tree. I thought the lights should get twisted around just like it happens to us when we put up our tree. LOL!
- Cut a sun and attach it to the card base using mounting tape.
- Finish by attaching two cardinals in the scene with small pieces of mounting tape.

Making this gnome Christmas card was so much fun. What cute images these guys are. And if you are a love of gnomes you may want to check out the new Winter Gnome stamps over at Rubbernecker. They are adorable. Check out this precious gnome Christmas card made by my friend, Julie Warner. I sure wish I could color like her.
