Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Thumbs Up Gnome from the new September release. This gnome is great for so many different cards! I just love him!
To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then fussy cut around with a thin white border. I cut the sentiment with my cutter and then inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and a Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush.
For the base card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock and cut it and scored it to be 5.5″ x 5.25″. I taped around the edges with painters tape and then used multiple Tim Holtz Distress Inks listed below and Picket Fence Studio Blender Brushes to create the background. Once I was satisfied, I removed the tape. I die cut Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock using my Cuttlebug and Your Next Stamp – Confetti Panel Die. I added some 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the panel and popped it on top of the background. 3M VHB – 2 sided tape was added to the backs of the image and sentiment and they were both popped up on top of the panel die cut. Lastly, I added in some Kraftin’ Kimmie – Polar Dots to finish off the card.
