So when I so the Gnome set I knew it was at the very top of my list! I also knew that while it was most certainly a Christmas set – I KNEW I would not wait until Christmas to use it. The challenge became how to take the images and ‘un’holiday them!
Here you go!
You can see how easy it is to eliminate the Christmas portion and then easily swap it for any season of the year. I have some great ideas for some little Autumn Gnomes!
One of the stars of this card are the new ‘holeless’ sequins!! They are fabulous!!! We don’t need the holes (it is just a place for the glue to smush through, lol).
I give you some ‘how to use the Blends’ tips on this little guy. It’s so easy for it to bleed, the areas that are colored are so tiny – I mean look at his little face! It’s also the way to change his Santa hat to a summer hat.
I also used the Celebration Labels die – the set includes the leaves (colored again with the Blends).
I hope you enjoy this – whether you intend to start your Christmas cards soon…or if you are like me and love to try to find value in those Holiday sets to use all year round! I will be having a Christmas in July week – the week of July 25th! That week I will be using some of the new Holiday products for those of you who get way ahead this time of year!
