52 Christmas Card Throwdown (June Theme )

 Hi there Crafty Friends. It's time for the 3rd challenge of June for 52CCT with Tracy as our host.  She wants to see Gnomes on our  Christmas cards. This always makes me happy:)

I pulled out my fave SSS Gnome die for the occasion. I chose some glittery papers to give it a festive feel!

First of all I made the background using an embossing folder and Distress Oxide ink. Then I die-cut the tree frame and mounted on the background with dimension tape  and then on the black card base. 
My next step was to die-cut the gnome and also the birds. 
The sentiment was stamped with white ink and white embossed on black card. 
I strategically placed the birds and sequins. 
I hope you believe:)
Dies: SSS Large Gnome; Hello Bluebird Winter Woods Overlay; IOS birds
Embossing Folder: Stampin Up
Stamp: Memory Box Typewriter Holiday Elements

I hope you'll visit the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown blog to see what the rest of the team created with these colours and then be inspired to join in the challenge!

I'm also sharing my card at the following challenges:-
