Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!
Hi from Laurie bringing you a card for the holidays to celebrate our "Festive Fun" challenge going on here at the Portal.
For this card, I used the Pompom Gnome stamp from Lost Coast Designs and the Dear Santa clear stamp from Carmen's Veranda.
I started by going through my stash of Christmas papers and selecting some in the traditional red, green and white Christmas colors. I then cut thin strips of each paper I had chosen and glued them to a piece of white card stock. When I was done I had a piece more than twice this size so will have some left over for another project. I trimmed up the edges then using my sewing machine stitched around the border. I then layered this with a white card base.
Next I stamped my gnome onto white card stock with black ink and colored his suit and hat red, his nose pink, and his shoes black. I cut him out and glued him to my card front as shown, and then attached a pompom to the tip of his Santa hat. I stamped my sentiment with black ink onto white paper, and because my card is rather narrow, I reduced the size on my printer and printed out a copy which I then cut out and outlined with black ink. I affixed this to the upper portion of my card front, and that's a wrap!
