gnome christmas card

I made a card with Falliday Fest and Splitcoast Stampers where the challenge is to place a gnome on the card for a holiday. I chose Christmas and made a punch art gnome.

Punch Art Christmas Gnome

I used paper from Celebrate Christmas with Echo Park for the background and greeting. The greeting is from a set from The Stamps of Life, snowglobe2stamp. I used punches to create the gnome. The feet are punched with SU Perennial Flower punch, the body with an SU Ornament punch, the nose with a 5/8 inch circle punch, and the beard with a leaf die from a hibiscus set, and the hat is a Spellbinders triangle die. I had a snowflake eyelet in my stash which worked for the hat decoration. The snowflake in the background is from a Cherry Lynn die. I had snowflake embellishment to add.

I had fun creating this. I found the directions from Dawn Olchefske on a Pinterest post.

    1. The funny thing is there are punch instructions for Mr. Potato head on Pinterest. I may have to look. I had fun with this and am working on an Autumn one for a thank you card.

    1. Thank you! I was so thrilled to find Christmas paper that I hadn’t used that worked perfectly for this. I am working on another gnome for Autumn. Since the punches and dies are out, have to keep creating till I put them away.

  1. This is a great card, Lisa. I really like the fun look of your gnome. It kind of looks like you’re looking down at him a bit, which is perfect for a gnome. I’m looking foward to seeing your autumn one.
