Gnomes Bake Shop

Hi, Lois here with my Monday card.  Before showing the card, however, I wanted to let you know that the Christmas Release (Part 3) and new Halloween dies are on sale at 25% off on the CottageCutz website.  I hope you check them out.  There is also a cute new die, Dakota the Husky, which is available only in the CottageCutz store.

Now, on to my card!   I'm a big fan of fun-fold cards, and today's card is a Center Step Card.  If you're unfamiliar with this technique, you can find a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.  This is my card for today.

Cardstock used for this card are as follows:

Brown - 5 1/2" x 11"
Red - 3 1/8" x 4 1/8"
White - slightly larger than 3" x 4"
Patterned paper - 3/4" x 5 1/4" (3 pieces)

I die cut the pieces for the bake shop from brown and white cardstock.

Using Copic markers and some distress ink, I colored the pieces and constructed my bake shop.

I then cut the gnomes from white cardstock . . .

. . . then colored and constructed the figures.

Following the directions from the Center Step Card tutorial, I cut, scored, and folded my card base from the brown cardstock.

After die-cutting the white piece of cardstock with the second largest Wacky Stitched Rectangle die, I layered the red and white pieces onto the center of the card; then glued the three strips of patterned paper -- trimming down the vertical strips to size.

I then added the bake shop and gnomes to finish the card.
