From Our Gnome

 I have the shakes this week! As in I made what I am calling a full front shaker card. It is the first time I have tried this style and it was a ton of fun! Of course I  would change a few things next time but over all I think my card featuring "Snowy Gnome" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps will make one of the young people or adults on my card giving list smile!

 I started my card by stamping Snowy Gnome on alcohol friendly paper, colouring him with Copic markers and hand fussy cutting him leaving a thin white edge. I set him aside and found a snowy background paper from Whimsy Stamps and cut it to fit my 5" x 5" base. I die cut some houses and added a bit of white acrylic paint to the roofs and some glitter so it looked like snow. While that was drying I cut some stitched snowy hills and added paint and glitter to the edges as well. I glued down the snow hills and houses on the base and set it aside.

To create my full front shaker, I cut a page protector in a square half an inch larger all the way around then my base. I glued down three sides and added some seed beads, sequins and a glitter mix and then glued the last side closed. All of this glued down to the card base. 

I glued my gnome down in the middle of the card and added two sentiments, a silver snowflake charm and a bow to the corner. I added some black stitch lines around the sentiments to help them stand out a bit. Glitter dots finish of my card.
