Aspen Tree Dies continued ~ Kindest Gnomes


How cute is this adorable little gnome peeking out from behind the trees?
He's just popping in to say "Hello"
(stamped from the Soft Seedlings stamp set)

So yes.. I paired up the Aspen Tree Dies with the Kindest Gnome stamp set, along with a few little cut out images from the past Sale abration " Rings of Love" designer paper. 

The background layer behind the trees is a piece of designer paper from the Hues of Happiness designer paper. This layer is cut at 4 x 5 1/4

The tree layer cut at 4 1/8 x 5 3/4 is attached using dimensionals. I die cut the trees in a basic grey cardstock and then sponge daubed a little basic grey ink to increase the depth of the trees.

I stamped and colored my favorite gnome ( the little peeking fellow ) from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set. I fussy cut around his little hands so that I could place him behind the tree and still have his hands visible on the front side of the tree. I just tucked him in behind with a little adhesive.

All of this was backed onto a Night of Navy card base 
8 1/2 x 5 1/2
Scored at 4 1/4

I chose a few colorful dots on the card front to accent the color of the background layer. 

This inside layer is Basic White card stock cut at 4 x 5 1/4
and stamped with a greeting from my "retired" stash. 

You could decorate the card inside any way you choose with a greeting that best suits your card purpose.

These Aspen Tree Dies just keep on creating for us, the possibilities are just endless using this die cut. I can't wait to try a few Christmas designs.

I hope you enjoyed yet another short card tutorial using the Aspen Tree Dies. If so, please let me know in the comments belowπŸ‘‡
