"There’s Gnome One Like You" Card Instructions

1. Use Cricut Joy To Draw The Background

The first step in creating your card is to use the Cricut Joy to draw a wood style design into the brown background paper. This step adds a rustic and natural look to the card, creating a perfect backdrop for the cute gnome illustrations.

With the Cricut Joy, you can easily customize the design to fit your preferences, whether it be a simple wood grain or a more intricate pattern. The machine's precision and ease of use make this step quick and simple, allowing you to focus on the fun and creative aspects of the card making process. Once you've completed this step, you'll have a beautiful and unique background for your gnome-themed card that will surely impress your family and friends.

Tip: The more detail you have in your design the finer the marker you want to use. In this example, we used a fine tipped marker to draw our wood background.

2. Use Cricut Joy To Cut A Circle

After creating the wood style background with the Cricut Joy, the next step is to use it to cut out a circle in the middle of the backing paper. This will serve as a frame for the cute gnome illustrations and add a dynamic and playful element to the card. The circle can be customized to any size you prefer, depending on the size of the gnome figures you will be using. Once the circle is cut out, you can move on to the next step of the process.

3. Trace And Cut White Cardstock For Background

The third step in creating a beautiful and personalized card is to trace and cut out a piece of white cardstock to be used as a backdrop. This step allows you to create a clean and crisp surface for your gnome illustrations to be placed onto. By using white cardstock, the colors of the gnome illustrations will pop and stand out against the backdrop.

4. Use Cricut Joy To Cut Out Outlines

Next, using the free cricut files for this stamp set, cut out the figure backgrounds that will be stamped onto the backdrop. This step is crucial as it enables you to create a clean and precise shape that perfectly fits the gnome illustrations. You can use the Cricut Joy for a quick and easy process, where you can customize the shape and size of the backgrounds. If you prefer more flexibility, you can also use scissors to cut out the figure backgrounds, giving you the freedom to create unique shapes and designs. Once the figure backgrounds have been cut out, you're ready for the final step

5. Use The Clear Stamp Set To Form The Figures

The fifth step is to use an acrylic block and the clear stamp set to stamp the outline into your figures. This step is where the charming gnome illustrations come to life, giving the card a playful and whimsical touch. By using the clear stamp set and the acrylic block, you'll be able to easily transfer the image onto the figure backgrounds, creating a clean and crisp outline that's ready to be colored in. You can customize the color scheme to your liking, adding your personal touch to the card.

6. Use Fine Markers To Add Detail

The next step is to use fine tip markers to add detail and depth to the figures that will be used on the card. This step allows you to showcase your creativity by adding your personal touch to the illustrations. You can use various colors to create contrast, depth, and texture to the gnome figures. With the fine tip markers, you can add intricate details such as shading, highlights, and small designs that will make the illustrations pop and stand out against the backdrop.

This step is where the magic happens, and the card starts to come to life. By taking the time to add detail and depth to the gnome figures, you'll create a unique and special card that your loved ones will cherish.

7. Add Shading To The Background

The seventh step in creating a captivating card with the "There's Gnome One Like You" stamp set is to shade in the background with markers to create a sky theme. This step is where you can really make the card your own by adding a personalized touch to the background.

You can use various shades of blue to create a gradient effect, making the background appear as a beautiful sky. By blending the colors together, you'll be able to create depth and texture that will make the card come to life. You can also use other colors such as pink, purple, or orange to create a unique and captivating sky theme.

8. Plan Out The Arrangement

The eighth step in creating an exceptional card is to plan out your arrangement before coloring in your figures. This step is important because it allows you to visualize the final product and ensure that you use all the necessary pieces to create the perfect arrangement. By planning out your arrangement, you can also decide which pieces of the stamped gnome illustrations you would like to use and which ones you don't need. This can save you time and effort by avoiding unnecessary coloring and cutting.

9. Color In Remaining Figures

Once you've planned out your arrangement, you can color in the figures with fine tip markers, bringing them to life with your color choices. Be creative and have fun as there is no right or wrong way to color in your project.

10. Put Your Card Together

The final step in the card making process is to put everything together using either a glue stick, adhesive dots, or anything you find appropriate.
