Lili Of the Valley - Christmas Digi Stamps Sneaky Peak #2

Hi everyone

Here's another sneaky peak of one of the new digis being launched by LOTV today (18th Aug). The new release has cute snow people and Tomtes (gnomes). So for today's card, I've used one of the new hand written sentiments and one of the sweet gnomes which I coloured using pencils. Isn't he the CUTEST! I hope you like it. x

For your information, here is the link to the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the digi stampsand the LOTV online store to check out the rest of their goodies.

Here's What I Did
I trimmed down a piece of Christmassy paper and added it to the front of my card blank leaving a slim border around the edge. I imported the little gnome digi stamp  and sentiment into my graphics program, then resized it to fit my project. The image was then printed directly onto colouring card stock and die cut into a scalloped rectangle, and then coloured in using pencils. Next I cut down a piece of red mirror card and cut out the centre portion using the scalloped rectangle die to create a frame. I glued the frame to a piece of scrap card and glued the coloured in image into the aperture. The topper was then added to the card front using foam pads. 

I die cut 3 banners, one from the patterned paper and 2 from card and glued them together in varying lengths. So I could line the banners up with the scalloped edge of the topper I die cut the top edge of the banners using the same scalloped rectangle die. I glued the banners to the top of the topper.  To finish my card I added the pearls to the banner and the bottom of the card.
