Gnomes in Snow!


I don’t make a lot of cards that have snow- I’m in Florida! We don’t get snow! But, a few cards with snow are required!

This was a card we made in my first Holiday Cards class this year. I used to have a Holiday card class every month from June-November in my home town. When we moved, I didn’t make cards for a while until about 3 years ago. I’ve had holiday classes the last 3 years, but this year I decided to try and have one a month from June-November. So far it’s working!

I die cut the gnomes and the mushroom from the DSP. The foxes I fussy cut. The background paper is also the DSP.

I die cut two pieces of Basic White cardstock with the Gingerbread dies to make the hills. After I die cut them, I thought using the Painted Texture embossing folder would make them look like snow.

After arranging all the gnomes and foxes and gluing them down, I then added some of the white Pearlized Enamel on the showing edges of the snow hills.

The sentiment is from the gnomes stamp set. I die cut it with Stylish Shape dies.

Here’s everything I used!

An easy card! I watercolored the daises in about two minutes. The grass is from the Palms dies. The background paper you can only get with hostess rewards! There is a TON of paper!!
