Interactive Gnomes

I purchased this pull tab die on a whim. It looked good but I am not sure I would use it. It frightened me a little and looked complicated. I was very wrong it was just so so easy.

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Cardmaking Tutorial

I cut the smallest slimline stitched rectangle from the trio die set and blended the grass using the polkadoodles stencil and mowed lawn distress ink
The clouds were created by blending speckled egg distress ink.
The pull tab die was then cut and attached to the scalloped base.

I cut 2 pieces of Kraft card using the next size up stitched slimline rectangle

A piece of teal card was cut using the scalloped frame.

A blue card base was created meassuring 8 3/8th Inch by 6 5/8th

The stamps were coloured and fussy cut out. These were then arranged as the image below.

Onto one of the pieces of  Kraft card I heat embossed my sentiment 

This was then all glued together and nuvo drops were added to the arrow on the pull tab.

I have entered this into the following challenges
