Gnomie Birthday

Hi there 🙂 One of my sisters recently celebrated her birthday, and I wanted to make an extra special card for her. She LOVES gnomes, so I went on a search for birthday gnome digital stamps, and found this adorable little guy from Lee Holland Illustations! I colored Gnome With Birthday Cake with my Copics, added a touch of glitter to the hat band and some ink smooshing for the background.

I wanted to do some sort of fancy fold card for her, but after messing up countless pieces of paper with the fold I was thinking of, I settled on this one with a band.

For the band, I stamped and embossed the sentiment in a dark purple, then die cut the sentiment and mat, before attaching it to the band itself. I started to decorate the card panels, using a fun confetti print for the background. I cut some purple and red candles to position at the bottom, and added some Wink of Stella designs to them. The top of the card looked bare, so I cut some streamers to drape across the panels, adding some colorful gems to them. A die cut Happy Birthday sentiment finished off the middle panel with the image. After standing back and looking at the card, I still felt it was missing something, so I punched some flowers to scatter at the base of the candles. After popping some gem centres to the blooms, and a few leaves, this card was finished 🙂
