Hello, my stamping friends and welcome to my blog. It’s day two of the 30-day Christmas card-making challenge and the challenge is called In the snow. I am really going to try my hardest to do all 30 days. Click here to see my card for the day-one challenge which was called Something red.
I decided to make a card/gift card holder using the Storybook Gnomes designer series paper. I don’t know about you, but I love gnomes and just recently started to collect them. My favorite gnomes are handmade and they are beautiful. This is my latest gnome – A Pittsburgh Steeler gnome of course. Isn’t he cute?
Okay back to my card/gift card holder. As I said, I used the Storybook Gnomes designer series paper. I love this paper and I must make sure to order more before the Jul – Jan mini catalog retires.
The card base is Pacific Point. The paper I selected from the pack of designer series paper for the front focal point, has small snowflakes. For the side panel, I used the paper I call the Christmas snow scene. This paper is perfect for today’s challenge. What do you think?
I die-cut the gnome from the DSP and adhered him to a Wonderful Snowflake and then popped that up using a Stampin’ dimensional. The sentiment is from the Sweet Candy Canes stamp set which I die-cut using the Stylish Shaped Dies.
For the inside, I added another piece of the Christmas snow scene DSP to the left side panel.
The inside sentiment is also from the Sweet Candy Canes stamp set.
