Christmas is Love with All the Trimmings - Color Dare #423 2020 Linky Holiday Party "Traditional Colors"

This is my Design Team card for our 2020 Holiday Linky Party Color Dare #423 "Traditional Colors".  

My Christmas cards this year were all gnomes.  Since my gnomes are all cut and colored... all I needed to do was put a background together and add a sentiment.  In my stash I had a negative circle cut in the floral design paper and decided to use that as a window card. Selected and added the gnome with 3D thin foam tape with the Christmas lights hung out the window.  Sentiment was stamped on French Vanilla cardstock with black ink, layered with black and adhered in bottom corner with thin foam tape.  

My Christmas cards this year are gnomes.  To see my collection click HERE

Great card Suzanne. I do love that poinsettia paper and of course all the lovely gnomes. I do especially like this gnome with his/her string of Christmas lights. X

Perfect sentiment to go with your cute little gnome poking out from the poinsettia paper.

I really like the combo of serious and not so serious here - the poinsettias and then the gnome wrapped up in lights. Great card!

Michelle said...

Love your card. That poinsettia paper looks so nice with your gnome! I wouldn't have thought of that pairing and it looks great!
