For some reason, I always think of my brother when I see garden gnomes (he has one in his garden) so this Studio Calico stamp set was absolutely perfect for the occasion. I stamped it three times across the top of the card, and coloured them with Copics. For the bottom of the card, I stamped Hero Arts Newspaper Background in SSS Smoke Ink before die cutting some "40"s using Lawn Fawn numbers dies. I added some fun foam behind the numbers before inlaying it all back together. The greeting is from Kelly Purkey's Happy Birthday set - it was white heat embossed on a strip of SSS Fog cardstock. Fishing touches were some Wink of Stella and a double coat of Glossy Accents on the gnome hats and a single coat on their belt buckles.
I will link this card up to a few places:
- Freshly Made Sketches is celebrating 200 posts this week!
- The Male Room for cards using newsprint
- CAS-Ology where the cue word is numbers
Thanks for stopping by!
