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.
- 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.
- 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.
Here the dies and stamp I used for my card.

I had so much making this Christmas gnome card. I like how bright colors pop against the white background. Here is a Pinterest link if you want more Christmas gnome inspiration. Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
