Gnome Present

Welcome to October!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club October Christmas Challenge! We have a year of new Christmas Challenges!  You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself. Hint..I’m really loving the new theme for this year.

For my cute gnome card, I colored & die cut the gnome & stamped the box onto another piece & colored it. I decided to cut a slit in the box to insert the gnome rather than masking & stamping the gnome inside the box. Here are a couple of pics showing the process.

I used a craft knife to cut along the lines on the top of the box.

You can see the opening I created.

The gnome is now inside the box!

On the rectangle on the right, I stamped the snowflakes w/ silver ink & heat embossed w/ a clear, sparkly powder. Both rectangles were backed by narrow layers of red & green. The clear star gems were added & I used a red Copic to color the center one.
Here are the Copics I used:
