For my Facebook Live this week, I created two whimsical cards featuring the Kindest Gnomes bundle. Gnomes are so popular recently and they are just plain cute! Like I said in my Live I never really thought about girl gnomes – I normally think of a Gnome as a bearded gent – but in this bundle there are girls gnomes too – and they are just as sweet as the gents!
Watch the video below to see how I made these cards. In the video you will be able to see the measurements used for the cards.
The first card uses the dies that are used to create a gnome – no stamping at all – just die cut and you will end up with this cute little fella! The dies have detail added – texture to the beard and stitching around the hat and shoes – love the extra detail! This card is a fun fold – it opens up from the top on a shorter panel.
I used Poppy Parade ink for this card – I pulled the color from the cute mushroom Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Storybook Gnomes DSP Pack.
The next card I made uses the Whimsical Woodland embossing folder – I think it is a perfect compliment to the gnomes. The mushroom and gnome were cropped right out of the Designer Series Paper – I LOVE when we can do that – it makes for creating a great card really quickly! There are two sheets in the DSP pack of mushrooms and gnomes – so you can make a lot of cards just by cropping the DSP!
This is also a fun fold – I cut a 1 inch strip off of the front panel of the card so that the inside panel would show. This card went together quickly – and I embellished with the Fine Sparkle Adhesive Backed Gems. I thought it would be fun to dress up the gnome’s hat – so added a big loopy bow made from White Baker’s Twine.
Here is the same card layout – with a different color palette – Poppy Parade card base and the mushroom DSP. Which is your favorite?
