G is for Gnome with Gift

      I'm truly mad about all of the gnomes from Beccy's Place but the most recent release, done in time for the 30 Days of Holidays (even though they aren't specifically Christmas gnomes) have to be my current favorites.  :-D  I turned this one into a Christmas Gnome and some other "G" things are:  Gift, Green, Gold, Glitter, Gel pens, all on a Gate-fold card.

     I colored with ProMarkers and Gel pens, then cut the image with a die from Spellbinders.  I folded the CS into a gate-fold shape, then added the strips of gold and green, glittered, CS to the two the front panels.  Finally, I attached the image and the sentiment (cut with a Tonic Studios die) on top of the glittered CS.  I left is pretty CAS, no embellishments at all, because this card will go to one of my grandsons or maybe even my great-grandson.  :-D.

Here's a gate-fold view.

     This is my second post of the day.  If you want to see the first one, just scroll down to the previous post.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
