My project today is a Christmas gnome card with brightly colored gnomes, snowy trees and cardinals against an all white background.  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Gnome Couple, Frame with Curves and Pierce, Evergreen Trees, Small Birds and Splatter Background.  I thought the Frame with Curves created a whimsical snow like background for the gnomes and trees. 

Come see how I made this Christmas gnome card.

The Frame

  • Cut the frame using white cardstock.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape around the back of the frame and add a few pieces to each of the curved sections.
  • Attach the frame to the white card base.

The Trees and Cardinals

  • Cut the trees using green cardstock.
  • Apply white pigment ink to the Splatter Background and stamp the trees.
  • Sprinkle the trees with white embossing powder and heat with the heat gun.
  • Use red cardstock to cut the birds and color their beaks with a black Copic marker.

Come see how I made this snowy Christmas gnome card.

The Gnomes

  • Use red, green, white and multiple designer paper patterns to cut the gnomes
  • Color the faces, beards and hair using Tea Dye, Vintage Photo and Wild Honey inks and mini applicators
  • Assemble the gnomes using glossy accents.

Assemble the Scene

  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the gnomes and trees.
  • Attach the gnomes and trees to the frame.
  • Finish the card by attaching the cardinals to the card base using small pieces of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this fun Christmas gnome card.
