Thinking of You on Christmas Eve

Hi all! Please prepare yourself for a week full of holiday cards! =) Here is one that I made using an adorable gnome image from Whiff Of Joy Stamps.


This sweet image is called Thinking of You on Christmas Eve. This is such a cute image and you know I have no resistance again Norma Fickel's gnomes. =)


The image is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then trimmed out. I cut out the empty space within the wreath and created a window on the front of the card. The layers of music paper and card base are cut using a circle die slightly smaller than the wreath. Hope you can see the window from the photos.


The inside is finished with Hero Arts Music Background to match the patterned paper that I used for the card front. It's stamped with Antique Linen distress ink and the piece is inked with Antique Linen and Tea Dye  to match the patterned paper as well.


The pattered paper is from Wonder 6x6 Paper Pad by Authentique. The sentiment tag is cut using WOJ's Sweet Tags with Hearts die and the sentiment is from Christmas Banners set.

That's all for today. Hope you have a lovely day! =)




Thanks for stopping by!
