Snowflake Splendor Gnome

Here's my last gnome card of 3 I'll be sharing with you this week. But don't let that stop you from thinking of other ways to use this set. 

I've already seen these darling gnomes transformed into Halloween gnomes, or other holidays just by tweaking their hats or changing the color scheme and Designer Series Papers you might use with them.  That is one of the benefits of being a Stampin' Up! customer - you have so many choices of ways to make cards that are unique to your style and your needs. I'm happy to help you to learn how to use Stampin' Up! products. They are high quality and well made.

If you know someone who LOVES snowflakes AND gnomes then this is card you should make for them. It will be mantle worthy!

Let's Create This Card!

1. Cut Pacific Point cardstock 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", score at 4-1/4"

2. Cut Whisper White cardstock 3-3/4" x 5".

3. Cut Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper 3-5/8" x 4-7/8". Adhere this layer to the Whisper White and then to the card base.

4. With a 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" piece of Pacific Point cardstock, run it through your die cutting machine with the second to the largest scalloped rectangle die.

5. Cut Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper 2-1/2" x 3-5/8". Adhere this layer to the Pacific Point scalloped rectangle layer, and then raise with Dimensionals onto the card base as shown.

6. Cut out the Balmy Blue Glimmer paper with the 3" x 4" scalloped oval die (approximate size).

7. Cut out a piece of Whisper White cardstock 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" and stamp the gnome image with the Memento Black ink.

8. Color the gnome image with the Stampin' Blends markers: 
Dark Balmy Blue, Light Gray Granite, Dark Night of Navy, Light Mint Macaron, Light Petal Pink.
Then run image through your die cutting machine with a plain oval die that is slightly smaller than your scalloped oval shape.

9. Affix gnome layer and glimmer paper together using Stampin' Seal adhesive. Raise those layers off of previous layers with Dimensionals.  Place Snowflake Sequins around gnome as desired. Finish off with bow tied from Snowflake Splendor ribbon. It's a little stiff but will soften up a bit as you work with it. Affix with glue dots.  Pat yourself on the back! Great job!
