Valentine Gnome Card

Create this easy to make Valentine Gnome Card

With Valentine’s Day approaching I wanted to share with you this adorable Valentine Gnome Card.

I used a couple of different shades of pink and red for this card. The hearts that were cut out of the hat I used on the outside of the card to add more to the design. You could also use them on the inside of the card around any writing you would like to add. I’ve included two inside panels in the file for you to cut out for the card.

Homemade cards are a great way to create something that is special and unique for someone as you can add your own wording inside the card for the one you are sending it to. Everyone enjoys receiving something that was homemade and not just picked up at a store as you put more of you into what you make for them.

Next you will click on "Make It" and the prepare mat screen will appear.

Now if everything looks correct on it, click on the continue button
The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the red Cardstock I used is medium weight, you will need to select "Medium Weight"..
Once you have Design Space set, you are now ready to prepare your mat. I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat, this helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut.
