Uff Da!!!

I've had a thing for gnomes this past year and recently got in Simon Says Stamps's She Gnome and finally got an opportunity to make a card with it.  I'm no an affiliate but you can find it HERE if you're interested.

It took numerous cuts to get all the pieces I wanted to make her but it was worth it!

I cut her 5 times not including the outline. The red front at the top right I cut for the teeny tiny hearts to adhere them in the blue front.

Isn't she adorable!! The heart in the hat and the bows are the same red as the little red hearts but I used a red metallic gel pen on them for some pop.

Here's a closer look. As to the spot in the hat to the left of the nose, I have no idea what it is. I used my Creative Detailer on it but it wouldn't come out.  This is a great tool if you do hot foiling (Glimmer Hot Foil System is on sale right now!) to get out unwanted spots of foil.  The card base is from a pack of 10 cards and envelopes (I have the card sitting on one in the full card photo) by lasting Impressions. I bet I've had the pack for 15 years! There were a couple missing so I apparently used them somewhere. I was a consultant for The Angel Company when I bought these (2002 - 2011) and don't remember seeing these cards for a LONG LONG time! The sentiment is from Stampendous's Holiday Gnomes.  All the paper is from Fun Stampers Journey and the links to those are below.

For what event would you use this card?
