Whimsy Theme ... TGIF Challenge 395!

Now ... the theme so I can explain myself.  😂

Now you are probably saying...WHAT?!  This is NOT fitting with the theme!  Well...here is my stance...gnomes are WHIMSICAL!  So I made a WHIMSICAL Christmas card with a whimsical color scheme.  So it WORKS!  😀  All the products from this card come from Stampin' Up! 

On to some more pics of the card...


I embossed the tops of the ornaments with Gold Embossing Powder.  I always love how much detail embossing gives.  One of my very favorite details to add to projects.  


I was going to mix & match some ornament shapes & patterns, but I just kept it kinda simple.  Stamped the same ornament in 3 colors.  I really like how it turned out.  And I ♡ LOVE ♡ the bundle I used here...the Spruced Up Bundle!! It actually cuts out this ornament AND an outline to the ornament.  So stay tuned for how I used those on another project! But they are really fun dies.  

Like look how CUTE these stars are!  Obsessed!  And so WHIMSICAL!  Hee. 


I also used an embossing folder in the background called Whimsical Woodland...does it get more whimsical than this?!  Haha.
