Gnome For The Holidays

I’m keeping with the cuteness factor with these guys!

I started with Basic Grey cardstock. I layered it with Plaid Tidings DSP (153527) cut 3 ¾ x 5 ¼ & Whisper White 1 x 5 ¼, embossed using a retired Decorative Dots EF (133520). Then covered the seem using a ½ x 5 ¼ strip of Basic Grey cardstock. The circles were die cut using Merry Merlot roughly 2 ⅝ circle & Basic Grey die cut using Stitched Shapes (145372). The circles were popped up on dimensionals. The gnome was inked in Memento black ink & coloured using Stampin’ Blends. I “fussy cut” the gnome & popped him up on dimensionals. On his beard, I used Wink of Stella (141897) to give it a subtle bling. For the final touches I added a few Basic Pearls (144219). The sentiment is from the Tree Angle stamp set (153442). In hindsight, I would have embossed the sentiment to make it stand out a little more.
