Gnome in a Globe

Hey paper crafting friends.  Welcome back to the Handmade Holiday Blog Hop full of inspiration and ideas for your Holiday Card Making.  I have three cards to share with you today starting with my favorite Gnome in a Globe.   I had so much fun making him, I can’t wait to share him with you.




Gnome in a Globe:

One of my favorite new items from this release is the New Embossing Folder “Sprinkle Snow Globe”. It’s in the shape of a dome, or a snow globe. Didn’t you just love to shake those as a kid? I still do, haha.

I decided to add my favorite Lil Gnome Wafer Die to create this fun Holiday card.

Isn’t he just the cutest?  I embossed the Sprinkle Snow Globe Embossing Folder in Vellum and cut it out before adding a few snowflakes to it.  The little gnome fits perfectly.

Creating the TREE Snow Globe:

As you can see, I wasn’t quite finished with this new Sprinkle Snow Globe embossing Folder.  I had to make another card.  This time, I brayered Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink all over the inlaid side of the embossing folder, placed a piece of white cardstock inside and ran it through my machine to create this card front.  This allowed the snow to stay white but the background to be blue.
