I was delighted to create with Spellbinders's Holiday Hugs Collection by Stampendous! (Affiliate links used throughout; thank you for your support!) This collection boasts many adorable creatures with arms spread wide, sending big paper hugs. I created with the Gnome Hugs set, rather appropriate for this lover of magical creatures.
This happy gnomie is wearing a pair of plaid trousers with suspenders, easily created by die cutting the gnome body from the plaid and cutting across at his waist. A strip of the same plaid was layered over the top of the pants and tucked behind his beard. Easy peasy! The sentiment is from a cut apart.
The smaller gnome fits perfectly atop this 3" x 4.25" notecard, sized to fit within the Envelope of Wonder envelope. The Notched Corner Frames fit so nicely on this sized card as well. The sentiment was fussy cut from patterned paper.
I loved the smaller accessory images in the Gnome Hugs set -- the stocking and Dala horse -- so I featured them each on smaller notecards as well. I layered a heart behind each of the focal die cuts to further mat the card. The sentiments are from an older set in my stash.
Be sure to check out the entire Envelope of Wonder Collection -- I am in LOVE with the entire collection. I'll be sharing projects using the Autumn Wonder Dies, consisting of several layered mushrooms and chunky gourds.
