From Our Gnome To Yours - Whimsie Doodles April Release

It is new release day at Whimsie Doodles and April is full of cute gnomes with punny sayings and circus images. For my card I have used the NEW Gnome Home digital stamp and coordinating sentiment (you can get both for only $3!!!). I just love the adorable mushroom and its matching mailbox. I wish my mail came in a box this cute - might not make getting all the bills so bad. ;)

I used a clear card blank (yes, again) for this card and placed a mini card inside of it that had been covered with some striped paper. On the front I have used my new houndstooth border die, this just arrived over the weekend and I had to break it in.

Make sure to stop by the new release post on the Whimsie Doodles blog for lots more eye candy and to find out how you can get a FREE gnome digi!

Just the details… (1) Held the die-cut sentiment onto the card front using green polka-dotted ribbon, (2) Placed a houndstooth border on the front of the card, (3) Used lots of foam squares for added dimension, (4) A mini card was placed on inside of clear card to hide personal message.
