Holiday cards in non-traditional colors can be fresh and fun, just like today’s Christmas Gnome card in shades of mint green and pink. It’s time to play at Festive Friday – Home of the Inspo List!
For this week’s challenge, we are inspired by New Year’s Day. Remember, at Festive Friday you do not need to actually celebrate or make a card for the occasion featured. In fact, I didn’t need a New Year’s Day card, but I sure needed more Christmas cards. Since your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project, I used stars, rhinestones, silver and die cuts to create this holiday card. I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
Today’s card is a stepped up version of the clean and simple punch art gnome I created a few weeks ago. (You can see him HERE.) What a difference using designer series paper for your background, adding extra presents, silvery pine boughs and lots of bling makes! The old science teacher in me loves experimenting with the dies and punches I use. This guys sports different gnome shoes than the first, and I wish now I would have given him boots like the first little guy. However, I am so in love with these gnomies, that I can’t wait to make another one similar to the two I have already created!
