Spellbinders | Gnome for Christmas

Hello there, today I have a card to share with you using products from the new Gnome for Christmas Collection from Spellbinders. This is such a wonderful collection! Definitely more on the playful side with the little gnomes. 

I am using the super cure Holly Jolly Gnome today. The gnome and ornament can actually swing from the bow. I didn't utilise that feature on my card today but it is such a fun idea!

I started off my card by die cutting the elements from the Spellbinders Holly Jolly Gnome Etched Dies from Spellbinders Cardstock. I cut the gnome from Alabaster, Snowdrift, Royal Amethyst, Onyx and Graphite Cardstock. 

He was assembled and adhered using Bearly Art Glue. The ornament was die cut from Lilac Blossom and Purple Mist Cardstock and layered together. 

The ornament string and topper were die cut from Spellbinders Brushed Silver Cardstock. I also die cut the bow from this to reinforce the silver glitter foam sheet that I also cut it from. This is the Spellbinders Pop-Up Die Cutting Glitter Foam Sheets Gold & Silver Pack. I like that it is already 3D, so no need to pop it up with foam tape!

I took a panel of white cardstock and ran it through my Platinum 6 with the Spellbinders Argyle Socks Embossing Folder. It was then adhered to a mini slimline (6.25" x 3.5") card base with tape runner adhesive. 

The ornament and gnome were adhered on top using thin foam tape. The string and bow were adhered using Bearly Art Glue. To finish off, I added white gel pen highlights to the gnome and a few Spellbinders Silver Mix Color Essentials Gems around the gnome.

I know that not everyone loves gnomes. To me these are actually gonks (no face, just a nose), which originate from Nordic and Scandinavian mythology and come out at Christmas time. They are said to be a mix of a gnome and a hobgoblin. I definitely seem to be drawn to gonks more than gnomes! Either way, I think this one is cute swinging on the ornament Miley Cyrus style! ;) 

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a lovely day and a great rest of the weekend! 


  1. I do like this set but I think Trinity did it better with Holiday Hang Out.

  2. So very pretty Michelle, the purple and silver are so Christmassy together! I love how he is sitting on the bauble and that you can make it swing if you want to. I've never heard of a gonk before!
