Gnome for the Holidays Z Fold Card with

Sunday, July 16, 2023

Look at me! Getting my Craft Roulette project done without needing my extra Patreon time! I actually missed Friday's episode since my kiddo was coming home from camp and I was so excited to pick her up. But I watched the replay and made my card the same. Friday. night. AMAZING! The wheel was actually super friendly this week and I really liked the parameters; I will highlight them in bold as I describe how my card came together.

I started with a piece of kraft cardstock and scored it to be a z-fold card with cutting it to 8-1/2 x 5-1/2" and scored it in half at 4-1/4" and the left side again at 2-1/8", folding a mountain fold and then valley fold to create the z shape. Next I die cut my rainbow (we can use any colors) striped panels with my second largest nested A2 rectangle die and even used it again to trim the smaller panel to fit in that 2-1/8" width. I also used the sixth largest nested A2 arch to cut two arches out of some red patterned paper as well as the seventh largest nested A2 arch to cut two arches out of white cardstock.

My sentiments are stamped with a brown ink and embossed with a copper embossing powder on the white cardstock. They're from a Christmas stamp set in the stack of new products on my mesk that has been sitting and waiting to be used from! I also die cut some pine needles and pinecones that are tucked into my card after using some Distress Ink for dimension. My two gnomes are colored to be a couple old gnomes with alcohol markers and since I used my MISTI to stamp them, when I was done coloring I stamped them again with brown ink to create a darker outline in ink that is not alcohol marker friendly to match the sentiment color.

After assembling the card together (everything is adhered with liquid glue or tape runner, except the white arch on the front of the card and gnomes are glued with foam adhesive), I added a few Pops of Color in Iced Mocha to bring a little glossy shine to the card. I hope this z-fold brings you some holiday inspiration today and make sure to play along with Craft Roulette this week!
