Hey everybody! Happy Hump Day – I hope your week is going well! Can you believe another month is almost behind us?! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’ve popped in with a fun shaker card I created with the adorable Trinity Stamps Just For You stamp set along with the coordinating Just For You die set. Trinity Stamps has been celebrating their 3rd birthday all month long (and I took advantage of a great birthday sale and bought several stamp and die sets), so I thought it only fitting to share a birthday card! I sure do love me some gnomes and they have some of the cutest! ;)
I cut a square top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock, and cut a square aperture with a My Favorite Things Die-namics Wonky Stitched Square STAX die along with a frame from CutCardStock Basis Magenta 80# cardstock which I adhered to the outside of the aperture. Using the Trinity Stamps Just For You stamp set, I stamped the gnome on Solar White cardstock, colored her with alcohol markers, and cut her with the coordinating Just For You die set. I used my oh so lonely We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool to seal a large pouch filled with Melted Icicle Clear Twinkle Sequin Confetti Mix and adhered it to the back side of the front flap so it was visible through the aperture. I adhered a second piece of white cardstock with a square aperture on the back side of the front flap to conceal the edges of the pouch. I stamped and die cut the sentiment, and adhered it beneath the aperture. The finishing touch was the addition of some pink bling.
I embellished the inside flap with patterned paper, and adhered the stamped, colored and die cut gnome in the center so she was visible through the aperture.
And one more peek… such a super cute stamp set! Thanks, Trinity Stamps, for celebrating your 3rd birthday and for having such an awesome sale! ;)
