I love gnomes – I think they are super cute and fun – and when I saw this new die from Rubbernecker, this winter gnome card idea popped into my head. Can you imagine sending these out as your holiday cards? And I thought it was the perfect card to post to join Rubbernecker’s Christmas in July week that starts on the 25th.
The Wavy Frame, Card Base and Blue Snowy Background
- Cut the Wavy Frame, 3.50″ x 8.50″ card base using white cardstock and the 3.00″ x 8.00″ background layer using light blue cardstock.
- Stamp the blue background using white pigment ink and the Not So Many Random dots.
- Apply clear embossing powder and heat emboss. Note: I used clear embossing powder by mistake and the falling snow doesn’t show well in the pictures. I would normally have used white embossing powder.
- Attach the blue layer to the back of the Wavy frame using strips of mounting tape.
- Apply ATG adhesive to the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.
The Cabin, Evergreen Trees and Birds
- Cut the evergreen trees using green cardstock, stamp them with the background stamp and heat emboss using clear embossing powder.
- Cut the cabin using Kraft and white cardstock and attach the roof section to the cabin base using rolled up double stick tape.
- Use red cardstock to cut the small birds and color their beaks using a blag marker.
The Gnome Couple
- Cut the gnome heads using white cardstock and the body parts using checked paper and red, green and black cardstock.
- Color the face, beard and hair using Color Fuse inks and mini applicators.
- Assemble the gnome pieces and attach them together using glossy accents and small pieces of mounting tape.
Complete the Scene
- Tuck the cabin in behind the top wavy frame and attach using mounting tape.
- Place the trees randomly in the scene and attach them using pieces of mounting tape.
- Attach the gnome couple in the scene using pieces of mounting tape.
- Finish the scene by attaching the birds using small pieces of mounting tape.
This winter gnome card could be easily turned into a more decorated gnome Christmas card – add some decorations on the trees and pop on a holiday greeting and you’d be good to go!
