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.

For this card I used the Slimline OPC Wavy, Gnome Couple, Evergreen Trees, Cabin #1, Small Birds and Not So Many Random Dots Background.

I am loving this winter gnome card made with one of the new slimline dies from Rubbernecker - come see how you can make one, too!

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.

This winter gnome card cracks me up - the gnomes AND that wavy frame are all made with dies from Rubbernecker!

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.

 

Believe it or not this winter gnome card was easy to make using dies from Rubbernecker - come get all the details!

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!  Check out this Gnome Christmas card to see another fun gnome holiday card.  I appreciate you coming by today and I hope you have a wonderful upcoming weekend.
