Vintage Christmas Gnome

      My first post today was for the letter "U" and now this one is for the letter "V" at the 30 Days of Holidays at Beccy's Place.  My "V"s are: Very Vintage, Vermilion, & Verdigris.  

      The little gnome is from Beccy's Place and I colored with ProMarkers, adding a few highlights with gel pens.  I cut the shape with scissors so that I could pop him up on dimensional tape.  Once that was done, I dug through my scrap basket and found bit and pieces which I could cut with dies.  I cut a larger piece of white CS with a framing die from Amy Design.  The glittery poinsettia pieces were cut with Impression Obsession dies from silver and gold scraps.

     The red plaid dp is a scrap from Graphic 45 and I added spots of Stickles to it for s little sparkle.  The larger green dp is a scrap of 12 x 12 paper by K & Co.  I printed and fussy cut the sentiment.

     This card is going to a very special friend of mine who dearly loves anything and everything vintage.  :-D


     That's all I have until late tonight.  Come play in the daily challenges at Beccy's Place.  The 30 Days of Holidays are almost over.  :-D  NanaConnie

The white frame is fabulous NanaConnie and really sets the scene for the other elements on your card. Great choice of patterned paper for the background, the patterns and colours work very well together and give a definite Christmas vibe to your card. I'm sure your friend will love it!

That's a really cute Christmas card using some of your snippets.

There's a mug of hot chocolate with added marshmallows awaiting you in the Playground Treehouse once you've finished playing on the swings.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Lovely card Connie who doesn't love a traditional Christmas gnome! They seem to be bent on taking over the world right now.:)
