Happy Monday! It’s half way through BYSHC Falling for the Holidays Linky Party! It’s a week long event where you can add Christmas/winter/holiday card onto the BYSHC Blog for a chance to win some wonderful prizes from our generous sponsors.
Today I’m showcasing our awesome Sponsors Therm-o-Web and Gina K Designs by using their collaborated Gnome for the Holidays Craft Kit. I bought this kit for awhile, but never used it until now. I actually made 2 cards because I felt like the first one was missing some details so I made a second one and changed what I didn’t like. Can you spot the difference?
I started by die cutting out the tree and gnome pieces with cardstock scraps I had. I used Gina K Designs Master Layout 7 to die cut out the mini slimline white cardstock and lavender mat cardstock. Then, I used Honey Bee Hill Borders to die cut out the Hill and used Gina K Designs White Glitz Glitter Gel to add some glitter to the edge of the hill border to give it some dimension. Lastly, I added some Sparkling Silver Fancy Foils with Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo on to the tree and gnome hat. The Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo allows you to add foil with pressure only, so you don’t need a laminator.
Once I glued everything together, I felt like the background was a little empty, so for my second card I used Simon Says Faceted Snowflakes embossing folder to give it some more dimension. I lightly ink blended some Gina K Designs Sea Glass over the snowflakes, but it’s hard to see in the pictures.
I appreciate you stopping by and leaving a comment. I hope you come check us out at BYSHC Blog, and if you get a chance, link up a wintry card.
