Kindest Gnomes with Cardz 4 Guyz #303 and Pals’ Fun Fold Blog Hop

  This is my second post for today.  You can see the first one for my Cardz 4 Guyz #303 challenge here.  I’ve created the same card using different colors for the Stampin’ Up! demonstrator Fun Fold Blog Hop.  I’m all about non-traditional Christmas colors, and using shades of blue just makes me so happy!

When you finish here, I hope you will hop along with the rest of the demonstrator’s listed at the bottom of the page.  I know I will!  I’m excited to see what the rest of the team created!

Here’s my card for the Fun Fold Blog Hop:


Doesn’t this little guy on the front remind you of one of Snow White’s dwarfs? He’s adorable and my favorite from the Kindest Gnomes stamp set!

I found this fun fold on Connie Stewart’s YouTube channel.  It’s so much fun, and so incredibly easy!  It looks complicated, but truly it isn’t!  You can find her video here.  In all honesty, it took me longer to color the two gnomes or to create the stencil background than it did to trim all the pieces and put the fun fold together.  Please give it a try!  I’m pretty sure I will be using this fun fold many, many times!

Finishing Up:

  • The double stitched Balmy Blue and white ribbon can be a bit stiff right off the roll. I’ve found that running it through my fingers a bunch of times helps to loosen it up. I haven’t been able to tie it in a bow, but the square knot works for this card.
  • I placed dimensionals under the gnome and sentiment banner on the front.
  • Because of the thickness of the card, I didn’t want to add more dimensionals under the sentiment square. However, I did need to use something stronger than the liquid glue because of the ribbon. Therefore, I used tear-and-tape to mount the white square onto the Night of Navy square mat.
  • I used my favorite adhesive, the multipurpose liquid glue for everything else.
  • After punching a coordinating piece of DSP for the envelope seal, I’d finished this coordinated card, envelope, and envelope seal set.
