I’m sharing a fun card created with a stamp set I’ve had for quite sometime but have never used…You Gnome Me from My Favorite Things stamp company.
I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m really enjoying creating slimline cards. There’s so much more room to embellish. This card measures 8 3/4″ x 4″. I purchased a few dies for slimline cards which I used to create the layers on the front. The letters are the retired Large Letter dies from Stampin’ Up! and are embossed with a dotted embossing folder. I layered four letters to give them some dimension. The funny gnome gentlemen are colored and paper pieced.
The envelope was purchased at an office supply store. It’s considered a resume envelope and has a really nice texture.
This card was a lot of fun to make. I’ll be sending this to my middle daughter, Lauren. She and I had a bit of an obsession a few years ago with garden gnomes and I know she’ll get a laugh from this.
I haven’t entered a challenge in a very long time. So I’m hoping to get back into them and will be entering this one in the The Paper Players theme challenge this week.
