You're Special Card by Deanna M
Today I have for you this cute Gnome Home card. My card base is Kraft card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. My patterned paper is from a My Minds Eye Six by Six paper pad called Gnome Sweet Gnome. This paper is not yet in the store but Kim can order it for you. I added a Green patterned paper mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and then the striped cross stitch patterned paper cut at 3 3/4" X 5". I then cut a strip of the reverse of the green patterned mat that had the flowers on it at 5" in width and ran that across my card.
My Gnome Home is from the Gnomes and Mushroom Cricut Digital cartridge but I just thought it was so cute. I cut the Gnome Home at 3" and all the layers are cut from scraps. I adhered the home to the card with some foam tape and added a small onyx liquid pearl for the door knob. I inked all my edges with some Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink. For my sentiment I heavily inked a small white piece of card stock that I used Faded Jeans Distress Ink to stamp my sentiment. I mated that with a piece of brown card stock and added a couple of buttons from my stash.
