Hi there! I was asked to be a GD for Conie Fong recently, and here is another inspiration card 🙂 I just adore the little gnomes that she has in her Etsy Shop, and it was so hard to decide which one to use! I figured it was high time that I started putting some real effort into getting at least a couple Christmas cards done up, so I chose the Poinsettia Gnome Bundle to work with. I worked with the PNG version, to allow me to go a bit crazy with the merging of the poinsettias with the main gnome image. When I was done, it appears that the little guy is walking out of a huge bunch of the blooms. I colored it up with my Copics, then fussy cut the entire image out.

I placed the image on an embossed oval piece, that I’d framed with a die cut silver mirror card frame. I brushed the die cut sentiment with some Wink of Stella to give a bit of shimmer before attaching everything to a coordinating plaid background that was matted with more silver mirror card. A few little silver embellishments finish the card off 🙂
