Sledding Gnome Fun!

How fun are these sledding gnomes from the Woodsy Christmas new release!
They bring back so many memories of sledding fun from my child hood. We had a huge hill that lead to a ditch that we sledded on. It ended with a "jump" that landed us in the bull rushes, much to my Mom's dismay! My brothers, neighbours and I had many hours of fun! 



After colouring my stamp with alcohol markers, I hand fussy cut it and added some Stickles to their hats and the sleigh front. 
Next I started forming my card base. I used a tutorial from my fellow DT and super talented friend Cheri which she calls a front step easel card. You can find her easy to follow tutorial here
Once my base was cut and scored I added some fun snow banks and trees to the patterned paper and the mountain folds of the base to create my scene.  Some plain and sparkle gumdrops finish off my card.
