Today I've made a card using Bearded Gnome by VildaStamps available from Live & Love Crafts. Now this little fella got himself lost in the post and didn't turn up for two weeks. I think he was off helping Santa. But he turned up eventually, so all's well!
He's been coloured with copics and cut out with a Spellbinders mega scalloped oval and mounted on a Spellbinders floral oval cut out of kraft card. The pom-pom trim and background paper (Landstoken Christmas Tree - Teal) are from Live & Love Crafts, the sentiment is from LOTV cut out of kraft card and mounted on a Memory Box snowflake which was cut out, embossed with white glitter WOW embossing powder, had a light dusting of Tumbled Glass DI and them triple embossed with clear embossing power, you can't see very well in the photo, but it looks enameled, LOVE IT. Behind the snowflake is some pale blue seam binding and fine ribbon from my stash. I tied a couple of little silver bells onto some fine blue twine and stuck that on top. The flowers are all Wild Orchid with a touch of Star Dust Stickles and I made little ice blue twirlies from some flowersoft paper covered wire, which I coloured with B00 and then coated in Crystal Art glitter. I also added one my handmade hatpins. The pearly things are from the candy I won from Claire (thanks soooo much hun, I'm loving everything in it). I got a little carried away with this card, but I really love how it turned out. This card is about to go visit my friend Stephanie for Christmas. Hope he doesn't decide to get lost in the post AGAIN.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
