Gnome Garden Christmas Card – Newtons Nook Designs

Welcome friends! Today I’ll be sharing a card using the Gnome Garden stamp and die sets – but with a holiday twist!

I wanted to take this set (that was originally a spring release) and make it a little more “Santa’s elves” and less “Garden Gnome”. It was super easy to do!

I started by creating a blended background. I then stamped and colored the gnome but focused on using more traditional Christmas colors for his outfit and trimming of the flowers that were originally in his wheelbarrow.

Now to search for some gift stamps – they are easy to find in many Newton’s Nook sets. I left the larger gift (from the Newton’s Stocking set) on the ground and then used the smaller gifts (from left to right they came from the Prehistoric Christmas, Fetching Friendship and Christmas Pheasant stamp sets).

After all of my images were stamped, colored and die cut, I strategically arranged the gifts in the wheelbarrow to cover the top and any remaining flowers that were remaining and then attached to the card front.

I finished with a sentiment from Snow Much Cheer and a few snowflakes from the same set.

Finally, I want to thank everyone at Newton’s Nook Designs for such an amazing experience as part of this team. Sadly, this will be my last official post but I’m sure you will continue to see posts featuring Newton and his friends here in the future!

Thanks for stopping by!
