Bad Gnome Pun! -- Snow Place LIke Gnome!

I decided it was time for another bad gnome pun. My card features the Sweeping Gnome from the Gnome Sheet (I Brake for Stamps). The Sweeping Gnome is one of NINE (9) gnomes and a mess of mushrooms on that sheet. It's a Gnoteworthy bargain indeed.

The Sweeping Gnome was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Crafts), fussy-cut, colored with Copic markers, and edged with a black marker. He was set aside while I created a snowy gnome home for him.

Red cardstock was die-cut with a dutch door die. Blue shimmery cardstock was inlaid into the window portion of the door. White cardstock was die-cut twice with the urn die from the same set and colored with Copic markers. Green cardstock was punched with an ancient evergreen tree punch.

Hickory Smoke Distress ink was smooshed onto one side of the Alterations Brick Texture Fade (Sizzix). Grey cardstock was carefully placed into the embossing folder and run through my Big Kick (Sizzix). The door was adhered to the textured brick cardstock and then to a grey A2 card.

The evergreen trees were adhered to the urns and Prisma Glitter (DecoArt) was added to the trees, the urns, and the step. The Sweeping Gnome was adhered to the card. More glitter was added to his broom to make it look as though he's sweeping the snow away from his doorway.

Green Dymo Tape (Esselte) was run through my Dymo Label Maker to create the sentiment, which was then added to the card.
