I’ll be gnome for Christmas!

Hi everyone! I hope your week has started off well and you had a nice restful weekend! I’ve stopped in to share a card I created for The Outlawz Festive Fridays Challenge! Our sponsor is Hetty Clare and the themes we’ve been given to choose from are Thank You, Birthday, Special Occasion or Christmas. I chose Christmas this time because I have a super adorable Christmas gnome rubber stamp that has been calling my name! I sure do love me some gnomes!

I created a standard A2 size top-folding card base, rounded the bottom right corner and applied several strips of washi tape to the background. I stamped the gnome in black ink on a small panel of white cardstock, colored it with alcohol markers and layered it on red cardstock. I adhered the image to the card base and stamped the sentiment beneath it in black ink.

I kept the inside fairly simple by adding a strip of washi tape, stamping the sentiment in black ink and layering the panel on red cardstock.

And one more peek… totally loving this Christmas gnome dude! ;)
