Holiday Gnomes Class - October 2020

Here are the cards from my Holiday Gnomes stamp and go class.  These guys are so cute and versatile.  You can easily adapt them for other occasions using different colors and replacing the winter-themed items with other things like flowers, pumpkins, etc.  Recipes are included with each project and the supply details are listed at the end of this post.  Thanks for stopping by!

Gnomes class

Card 1: Gnomes Gate Card

Here is a cute pair of gnomes getting ready to decorate for the holidays.  This gate card has two layers, the first with the gnomes, then the second with the sentiment.  I attached the gnomes to the left gate using dimensionals.  Then I attached the sentiment to the right gate using adhesive so that it laid flat. Be sure to place the sentiment so that it is completely hidden by the gnomes when the card is closed.  There are 2 cut-out ornaments, one being held by the gnome, and the other hanging in the tree.
