Today I am sharing a personalised card made using the (extremely adorable) Gnome for the Holidays stamp set.
I started off with the Night of Navy A4 cardstock - cut in half and scored in the middle.
I chose to use the Brightly Gleaming designer paper and cut a circle in the middle using the Circle Layering Dies. I glued a piece of vellum onto the card base using Tear and Tape adhesive. (Tip: Ensure the vellum piece is large enough so the adhesive cannot be seen through the die cut circle). The designer paper was adhered next using dimensionals.
Using the same sized circle die and a larger sized scalloped die, I cut out a circular border from the copper foil sheet to layer as a border on top of the patterned paper.
I stamped, coloured (using Stampin’ Blends) and fussy cut (ooof!) the little Gnome. Using the dimensionals, I added him into the die cut circle and tucked his feet behind the designer paper so it looks like he is popping out of the hole.
Note: Initially, I didn’t have any vellum behind the gnome and it was just too much blue. The vellum layer helped to break it up a little.
I placed a ribbon above the Gnome. The ribbon was from the “Everything is Rosy” medley which is now unfortunately retired.
For the sentiment:
On Night of Navy cardstock I stamped “A little Christmas Wish” with VersaMark and embossed with copper embossing powder. I punched the sentiment using the classic labels punch and adhered this onto a piece of velum which was cut using the Tasteful Labels dies.
I wanted this card to be personalised so I stamped, embossed and fussy cut the name of the recipients to add under the sentiment. This is purely optional.
