A Winter Gnome

Last Friday I made a Live video on my FaceBook page.  It's also on my YouTube channel and can be found by clicking on the YouTube link in the sidebar.

This card is for a special swap with a group of friends who, like me, used to be "coaches" for Fun Stampers Journey before they merged with Spellbinders and went retail.

I used a variety of products and do not have links to many.  I used an old Cuttlebug embossing folder called Snowflakes for the embossed base then lightly inked the edges with Chambray Shirt ink and one of my large Picket Fence Studio blending brushes.  I think that really popped!

The cool gnome is a die set from Simon Says Stamp! The 2 print papers used for his hat and body are from a PolkaDoodles pack called Gnome for Christmas.  I love the small prints!!! And the print behind the gnome is from FSJ's Holiday Cheer Prints, a pack of double sided 6x6 card stocks.  This pack is on sale right now as part of the Holiday Blowout Sale.

The fun snowflake border was made with Spellbinders Dec. 2019 Large Die of the Month, Kaleidoscope Trio Strips & Borders. This set of 12 dies is so versatile! If you aren't a subscriber to this club you will have to wait until Feb. (I think) before this die set is available for general purchase.

 Do you see the glittery beard? I used a white glitter card stock from a large 12 x 12 pack of assorted glitter papers I got last year for Christmas!

 This card is already mailed and I think my swap partner will love this!
