Caffeinated Christmas Challenge #10 - Gnome

I am happy to be guest designing for the Caffeinated Christmas Challenge #10 today. 

To play, link up a newly created Christmas themed card with at least one gnome!  Your card can be Coffee, Tea or Hot Cocoa. The challenge runs until October 25. 

This month's sponsor is a $25 gift code to Miss Ink Stamps. You will see some of their cute products on my card today. 

I stamped the gnome image from the Miss Ink Stamps Big Mugs stamp set onto Copic friendly cardstock, colored with Copics and fussy cut out. To create the panel I used a Simon Says Wavy Scalloped Stiches die and a die from the Stitched Rectangles set to cut from white linen cardstock and patterned paper. I partially applied Picket Fence Studios Snowdrop White Paper Glaze over a Miss Ink Stamps Jitters Stencil to create a bit of "snow" on the white portion of the panel. The sentiment from the Miss Ink Stamps Season's Greetings set was stamped using Versamark ink on a red cardstock strip and white heat embossed. Both the image and sentiment strip were attached to the card front using foam dimensionals. 

Products: Miss Ink Stamps, Doodlebug dp, PTI cs, Picket Fence Studios Paper Glaze, Miss Ink Stamps Stencil, Simon Says dies, Altenew and Versamark ink, Copic Markers
