Merry Christmas

Hello!  This is Sukie and today I have a Christmas card to share.  There are so many fabulous new dies available in the store for those holiday creations.  I'm having a blast creating cards with them.

I went with a blue theme for my card and cut out 2 of the gnomes from the Cup O'Gnomes die set. I used the same cup for the gnomes so that they would coordinate.  The snowflakes and Christmas sentiment are from the Christmas Love die set which I paired with the Nested Stitched Eyelet Oval.
The gorgeous striped paper is from my stash of Christmas papers which was complimented by a solid blue card base. The oval was layered on top of the striped card panel.  I adhered the oval toward the top of my card leaving enough room for the sentiment.
Next, the two gnomes were nestled inside the oval die cut. They were offset a bit for a whimsical appearance.
A few snowflakes were scattered amongst the gnomes.  I cut one of the snowflakes in half and tucked them behind each of the gnomes.
The oversized sentiment was adhered along the the bottom edge of my card.  The hand cut flag with the embossed sentiment was affixed above.
This non-traditional card will be a fun way to say Merry Christmas during the upcoming holiday season.
Here are the die sets used on my card, available in the store:

Very cute card! I like how you switched the papers between the hats and the cups.
