I created this card in March for a Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast.  I started out with printing out the Happy Little Gnome on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut it with a Small Label Nestabilities die and colored it with Copic Markers (Skin: E50, E51, E53, pants and hat: BG11, BG32, BG45, Shirt and Patch: Y32, Y17, YR15, YR18, hearts: R02, R05, Socks (E23, E25, E27, E29, Sky: B0000, B000, grass: YG11, YG13, YG17).

The image was layered on a piece of Canyon Brown cardstock that had been cut and embossed with a Jumbo Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities die. The edges of the image were paper pierced.

All the patterned paper used on this card are from the Fine and Dandy True Blue My Mind’s Eye Paper. The diagonally strip is 2 1/2″ wide. Two white strips were cut and embossed with the Eyelet Borderabilities die and adhered under the diagonal strip. The strip was adhered to a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of the same paper pack. The lower corners were rounded before decorative stitching was added.

Three buttons were stitched to the lower left of the layers before they were adhered to a card base, a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half.

The sentiment is from Whimsy Treasured Moments Tickets. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with Petite Oval Nestabilities and colored with Copic Markers YR30 and YR31. A small Cappuccino Twine bow on the side of the sentiment panel finish of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
Hugs and smiles
