Another Christmas Gnome


 When I first got this SSS gnome die, I couldn't put it down for the longest time and made lots of Christmas cards with it. For this version, I used retired SU! papers and a stitched tag die, along with a MFT notched border die.  I embossed the tag with a SU! softly falling ef for the snow. It was really simple to put together and all I did was add some candy cane twine to the tag and called it done.


Thanks for the visit and I hope you have a great day!

Hi Carol,
Happy Rudolf Days.
Your card is so colourful and a very super design.
Love how you embossed the tag and the paper used is gorgeous.
Really sweet little gnome as well no wonder you couldn't stop making cards with him.
Thank you for joining the Rudolf Challenge.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L. DT

Gnomes are the "in" thing! I love it! I predict my Christmas cards this year will end up having the gnome theme... I can see why you can't put that die down!

Hi Carol! Not only you used a cute gnome die, but also beautiful papers. Love the traditional colours and the cuteness of the embossed tag behind the paperpieced gnome! Those notched borders add interest to the whole design!!
Have a lovely week and send a "get well soon" for Butch!
Hugs

Aww my favourite gnome again and he's looking sharp in his festive colours. Super card and a real mantle pleaser. Hmm, my secret... laugh everyday, be childish at a times, mischievous often, a good hairdresser and Nivea moisturiser but seriously thank you for the awesome compliment, bless you x

I love how you used the papers, they blend together so well. The gnome is adorable and is a great Christmas tag gnome.

Well this gnome is a cutie, so I can see why you didn't want to put it down and make lots of Christmas cards with him. This one is equally as cute! I love the papers you used, he is definitely festive and very cute! Hugs, Brenda

This gnome is so darn cute! Love this great card. Methinks I can see a paper pieced background too...
Wonderful design, Carol. It was a good idea to place the gnome on that tag. He really looks good there.

Thanks for taking part in the September Rudolph Days Challenge.
