Hello everyone, it is Linda here with a Gnome Step Card inspired by an image from Stampendous’ Slim Autumn Gnomes! This adorable image has been layered using a number of 3D Foam products to add dimension without adding extra bulk. Let me show you my process!
Gnome Step Card Base
Cut a green card base to measure 11cm x 30cm. With a scoreboard, score the card base at 12cm, 24cm and 27cm 2cm, to create the two steps.
Fold the card base along the score lines into mountain and valley folds with the smallest at the front of the card.
Cut patterned paper to 10.5cm x 11.5cm and 10.5cm x 2.5cm.
Adhere to the corresponding steps using E-Z Grand Permanent Strips Dispenser 150 feet.
Creating the Stamp Image
Stamp the image onto white card stock using black ink. Die-cut the image using the second largest die and the smallest. Colour the images.
Adhere 3D Foam Strips to the back of the die cut images
Layer the die cut images onto slightly larger orange card stock, next Adhere 3D Foam Strips to the back of the layered images.
Remove the backing from the 3D Foam Strips and adhere to the card base.
Adhere the sentiment using E-Z Grand Permanent Strips Dispenser 150 feet.
Adhere a large circle from the 3D Foam Circles White Mix to a larger flower and a small one to each of her smaller flowers. Pop these onto the bottom left-hand corner of the smaller step.
Adhere a square from the 3D Foam Squares to a cardboard heart, adhere to the top right-hand corner of the larger step, with a flower on either side.
Tie thin coloured twine around the top of both layers.
This is my final tutorial as Guest Designer for this year and I hope you enjoyed all of my creations. I’ve enjoyed inspiring you for the last several months!
