This cute Gnome for The Holidays stamp set #153322 is only $19- and will give you lots of ideas for Holiday cards. They are cute and versatile. You can change the girl to a witch for Halloween, just cut out a witch’s hat and color her appropriately. I love this wizard one. He is perfect for granting birthday wishes and the third gnome can have a spider hanging from his hat or a bat. Just punch the shape and cover the holly. He can carry a pumpkin instead of a Christmas ornament. Just think outside the box.
My card today has lots of sparkle. The Balmy Blue Glimmer paper is so pretty and adds to the frosty look on my card. I used more of the Feels Like Frost Designer paper, that picks up more of that frosty blue color. Don’t forget to add Wink of Stella to give the gnome even more sparkle.
