Designer Series | October 2020

I am loving the new Little Gnome Agenda and I knew they would be adorable on some snowflake tags using the Flurry Frame and the matching previously released Snow Flurries dies. 
However, since I make so many tags, I thought I’d make mini cards instead today. 

I started by stamping and coloring in a few of the more Christmas themed Little Gnome Agenda images – and of course the cute girl gnome! I used the matching dies to cut them out. 

Then I started cutting out my snowflakes, beginning with the background one from Flurry Frame. I cut this from light blue and kraft cardstock, cutting matching square pieces to 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 which will be used behind the snowflakes. On the square pieces I sprinkled some Ultra High white embossing powder and heated it from the back to create some falling snow. 

The rest of the snowflakes are from Snow Flurries and I cut 3 different sizes using holographic cardstock, vellum and white cardstock. 

Having all the layers ready, I made my card bases. Cut some white cardstock to 2 3/4  x 5 7/8 and score it at 2 3/4. This creates a little extra piece on the bottom of the card, which I used to stamp my sentiment  from Holiday messages in light blue ink.

Then I added my 2 1/2 inch squares on the front of the cards and one of the snowflake backgrounds on top.  Then I glued together my Snow Flurries snowflakes and to make them stand out more I used some thin foam squares to pop up the large snowflake when adding it to the card. 

Finally I glued on the little gnomes to complete each of the little cards. 

You could do the same snowflake layering and punch a little hole in the Flurry Frame snowflake to create a tag instead – Or simply punch a hole in one of the corners of the little card.
