Gnome for the holiday cards

Here are photos of some of the holiday cards I made for this year using the Gnome die from Simon Says Stamp:

There were other colour combinations but I did not take photos of all the cards. All the card bases were cut and scored at the top. For the white stenciled background I used a snowflake stencil from Pretty Pink Posh on my Make Art Stay-tion mat and used a light gray ink for that. Cut it to the size I needed for the card front.

Used a stitched circle die from Pink & Main for the circle of printed card stocks. The snowflakes were punched out of glittered white card stock using M Stewart punches. For the gnomes that die set is two pieces - the solid back piece and the other die cuts the other pieces - hat, beard, robe, nose. I cut the back pieces using #110 weight white card stock from Mikes. For the gnomes I used scrap card stocks since all the pieces are small. For the hats for some of the gnomes I stamped them with checked stamps or I used dotted/printed card stocks. Sponged the edges of the beards and the noses. He is so easy to put together - added a pom pom to his hat using Glossy Accents.

The greeting "Merriest Wishes" is from MFT and I used the 14 pc die set from Pink & Main I bought on sale during their Black Friday sale to cut it out. The banner die set has a very small banner die up to a much larger die and well worth the money -- happy I added that to the collection. For the greeting banner I used foam tape behind it to give it dimension. Before I mailed these out I added mirrored sequins to the card fronts for some sparkle and shine. Cute gnome die and a fun card to put together.  Here is a photo of the Sentiment Strip Die set from Pink & Main:

Hi Gay - the Gnome is the large Gnome die from They sell a large, a small, and also a girl Gnome die so you have a choice for which one you would want. Thanks for your blog visit and kind comment! Candee P
