DTC Challenge #155 - "Holiday 2023" with Partner "Use Your Stuff"

This is my Design Team project for Double Trouble Challenge #155 "Die-cember" collaborating with Use Your Stuff "Wrapping Up" with Ribbons and Bows".  To meet the ribbon and/or bow requirement my gnome image is holding a gift wrapped up with a ribbon and bow.  

We were so sorry to learn that Use Your Stuff challenges will be closing the end of this year. Double Trouble had partnered a lot of fun challenges since 1918 and they will be missed.  Let's give them a big send off and enter a project for their last challenge and leave them a comment.  

Following the tutorial for this Fun Fold Card... pieces were cut for the card base, frame and design papers. After adhering the design papers the smaller die was used to cut through the front of the card.   

The gnome with gift was stamped on white cardstock two times using black ink... one was stamped on the scalloped circle, colored with Copic sketch pens and bordered with another scallop cut from sapphire cardstock. The second was fussy-cut (gift only), colored and adhered with 3D thin foam tape to the first image.  

On the bottom inside of the card base stamped in black ink using the masking technique for the gnome and two mushrooms and on the far right two more mushrooms. Took to my Copic brush pens and colored using some of the same colors and many others.   

On the front of the card the sentiment "Hello" was cut using the same stripe patterned paper as the front of card and bordered with sapphire cardstock and  lined up with the background pattern.  The gnome sentiment was added to the inside of the card base.  

At Double Trouble Our Things 1, 2 and 3 sure bring on some wierd combinations but I like to challenge them all; however, you have the flexibility of doing just Thing 1 to used your favorite cutter and include at least one die cut on your project and be eligible for our random draw. Please hop on over and join us at Double Trouble to check out the Design Teams inspiration, and then let us see what you create... hope to see you there.  

For those that really like more of a challenge may want to include Twisted Sister's optional twist "Wrap It Up" and/or enter at Use Your Stuff, our partner for this challenge if you have met their requirement... you will be rewarded additional chances for the random draw. Please join us for this fun challenge
