Gnome is where the heart is!

 Hi there! Welcome back! Today I have a card for the latest Holly and Ivy Challenge, where it is always anything goes.

The photo frame die cut and the gnome stamp were also purchased from Lifecraft. I thought this made for a cheery little Christmas card! I started by die cutting the photo frame out of a light green.

The gnomes were then stamped in Versafine clair Nocturne ink.

 They were then colored using Stampin' Up Watercolor pencils.

I cut each of the gnomes out using the die and then turned the die cut piece on its back and taped the gnomes into the empty spots.

Four cheery little gnomes!

They were then popped up onto a darker green card base, which I had previously stamped with one of the sentiments from the set in the same Nocturne ink and heat embossed with Clear Detail powder.

... and here's a close-up to finish with! 

I hope I have encouraged you to join in with us over at the Holly and Ivy Challenge

Till next time!
