I decided to use the You Gnome Me stamp set from My Favorite Things for a thank you card today.
I stamped one of the gnomes and colored him with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used.
Skin: E00 – E11 – E21
Hat + pants: YG03 – G14 – G07
Beard: BG93 – W5 – W7
Shirt + shoes: BG000 – BG93
I fussy cut the image and went over to my background. I die cut a smaller rectangle using the Double Stitched Rectangle STAX from My Favorite Things. I wanted to create a small frame with the gnome and then put it onto the card. I used Distress Inks to blend the background. I started with Salty Ocean and added a little bit of Chipped Sapphire to the bottom. I sprayed some water onto it with the mini mister and dabbed the droplets off with a paper towel.
I then die cut two strips of grass, with the Grassy Border Die from Lawn Fawn. I added Mowed Lawn Distress Ink to both strips. I used the water technique here too. I adhered the grassy borders to the panel. The front with foam tape, the back on flat. I also adhered the gnome with foam tape, so it looks like he is standing in the grass.
I die cut the word thanks, with the Thanks Word Die from Paper Smooches, three times. I used stick-it adhesive because it’s such an intricate die. I used Mustard Seed Distress Ink to give the word some color.
I added the little panel with the blue background, grassy borders and gnome, onto some white cardstock. I added a strip of pattern paper to the right. I used the 6x6 Perfectly Plaid paper pad from Lawn Fawn. I adhered the entire panel to a yellow cardbase, rounded off the bottom right and top left corner with the We R Memory Keepers Corner CHomper. I adhered the word Thanks to the card and added some Wink of Stella clear glitter to it for some shimmer.
I really liked this card. I made it for the My Favorite Things sketch challenge. You can see the sketch bellow and please check out the MFT website for the challenge.
