I colored the rest of the images with alcohol markers. And brushed Distress Inks around the edges with a blending brush to give it an outdoorsy look.
Then using a die cutting machine, I cut out the the image panel with a stitched circle die. And cut out a musical banner from Papertrey Ink patterned paper with a stitched banner die too!
I started with a sturdy quality gray cardstock 8.5-x11,” I like Papertrey Ink cardstock, folded in half, and trimmed down to 4.5x6.” And adhered a piece of 4x6” AC textured black cardstock to the card base.
Wrap bakers twine around the musical banner and tie in a knot and adhere to the black panel. And adhere the circle image to black panel. Added little adhesive heart gems to the card. And added a touch more sparkle to the music notes at the top of our image with a clear glitter pen to complete this darling birthday card your gnomie is going to love!
