I am late getting my post out today. Sadly I have the nasty crud that is going around so I am moving pretty much in a fog. Luckily I had a couple of cards already made. Today’s is a fun gnome card with a mix of the old and new.
This cute little flower power gnome girl is from the Friendly Gnomes stamp set. It is new in the upcoming January – June Mini Catalog. She makes me think of the flower power from the 70’s. She is stamped and colored using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and Stampin’ Blends. Naturally I went with the colors from the gorgeous DSP which carries on the flower power theme!
There are two die sets used here. The first is the Gnomes Dies. They are carried over from the Mini that is ending tomorrow. And match the new Friendly Gnomes in the next Mini Catalog. To make the oval that is perfect for the little flower child, I used the Framed Florets Dies. There are several focal layers in that Die set. This is the most simple one, but all I needed was a background. And it works perfectly in size.
These two fun DSP papers are from the upcoming Mini Catalog. And are in the Regency Park Designer Series Paper. The pattern reminds me of the flower power as I said. But I believe I had a pair of jeans with a similar pattern on them!!! Yikes!! Now I feel really old. 🙂
For a touch of added flowers, I used the Fun Flower Resin shapes that are in the Annual Catalog. There are a few different colors included. I used three of the colors in these flowers. They seem to be the perfect choice with the flowers in the beard.
Here is an open view of the card, as it is a fun fold.
