The Garden Gnome

Hi, Well after a long wait I'm finally posting my garden gnome card, made for my son's birthday at the end of September.  Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of it before giving it to him and I've now finally got it back to take the infamous picture.  (this is especially for Eileen as she borrowed me the die to make it).  I do agree with you Eileen it is a bit of a faf putting the pieces together, and I did lose my patience a couple of times....lol.  The inside is decorated very similar to the front of the card.

I made the card using:-

Cuttlebug gnome die
Quickcutz photo corners
SB Labels 8 dies
SB Nesties scalloped circles large
SB Stars 5 die
SB Crown dies
Crafty Individuals paper pad
Other papers from stash.


  1. Oh wow! wow! WOW! ... THIS IS wonderful! I hope your son knows just how long this card took you to make !! I just love it Dee ... Super job and I can't help smiling ...lol

  2. Just a little correction ... The Gnome is a Quickutz not Cuttlebug Die, Dee .... Could be me giving you 'duff' info .... sorry xxx

  3. Eileen, sorry it's me giving duff info in the rush to get it posted ....

  4. Hee hee ! Lots of work, but so worth it. xxx

    Popped over from Eileen's blog.
