Merry & Bright

Today I'm bringing you a little holiday cheer from Whimsy Stamps.  This is their Gnome for the Holidays by artist Crissy Armstrong.

This adorable little fellow is just full of joy as he carefully places the star on the bare tree.  

To make this card I simply stamped him on Neenah 110 # cardstock and used my Copic markers for coloring.  I used the Gina Marie Designs Fish Tail Banner Die (discontinued) for the edges and for the black matting.  The bright star patterned mat covers the A2 size card base  and a red twine is triple wrapped over the colored image after securing it to the card.  I added a red heart brad to the twine and nipped the ends off after folding them over tightly.  Now he's complete and ready to be mailed.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
