HEY GNOMIES! Have you mailed your holiday cards yet? No? Well, neither have I. That’s this week’s task. I probably have enough cards in my stash, but it’s hard to say. Every year I ask my husband how many cards he wants to send out to his friends and family and he always tells me “five, maybe six.” And then when it’s time, he suddenly needs 20 cards. So needless to say, I’m still making cards just in case.
Today I have another card where I used a die as the main focus. Here, I used the Gnome wafer die by Simon Says Stamp. As always, I’ve linked supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.
- Large Gnome Wafer Die by Simon Says Stamp [ SSS ]
- Joy to You and Yours by Simon Says Stamp [ SSS ]
I used the Gnome die to cut the pieces and the solid background from Hammermill smooth cardstock and colored the pieces using Copic markers (see list below). Once the pieces were colored, I assembled them by gluing each piece in place on the solid background using Multi Medium Matte glue.
I cut a piece of Hammermill cardstock to 2-1/8 x 5-3/8 inches and stamped one of the sentiments from the Joy to You and Yours stamp set using Versafine ink. I covered the ink with clear embossing powder and heat set it. Next I cut a piece of gold Idea-ology Metallic Kraft Paper to 2-1/4 x 5-1/2 inches and glued it to the back of the sentiment layer.
I cut an A2 cardbase from Neenah Classic Crest, topped it with a piece of design paper, and assembled the layers as shown.
Hope you enjoyed today’s project! See you again soon!
