Santa Gnomes

A Christmas card featuring a pair of cute little Santa Gnomes on an envelope fold flap. Quick & easy to make w/ the coordinating images & dies. Switch up the  papers for many looks.

A big congrats to MariLynn, the newest Featured Stamper (FS857)! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the embossed snowflakes & winter theme, but I changed most everything else: different colors, images, dies & changed up the layout.

After coloring & die cutting the cute gnomes, I die cut the printed paper, first w/ a stitched rectangle, then I used part of another die for the envelope like flap. The paper is double sided, so the pointed flap green section is the back side of the Christmas print. I cut a smaller piece of white & used a snowflake embossing folder on it before attaching it to the green layer.

In case you want to see how I did the partial die cut of the envelope flap, here are a couple of pictures.

I placed the pointed die where I wanted to cut the rectangle. Since the rest of the die is the same size as the stitched rectangle, I knew it wouldn’t cut anywhere else. I placed the top plate just as far as it needed to go to cut the envelope like flap.

This is the finished cut. I later decided I wanted this pointy edge to be stitched as well, so I lined up the corner of a stitched die & ran it thru just on the edge. The gnomes & snowflake were popped up w/ foam.

Here are the Copics I used:
