Pop up card with gnomies tutorial for MFT

Pop up card with gnomies tutorial for MFT Stamps.

Hello! I’m stopping by to let you know that there is a new tutorial on the MFT Stamps YouTube channel for you today. I created a fun pop up card with the BB Hanging with My Gnomies stamps and dies.

The card is quite simple on the outside, featuring a patterned paper from the Woodgrain Whimsy Paper Pad and the cute little house created with the Gnome Place like Home Die-namics plus the following MFT card stocks:

I did a little bit of shading with Copic markers (W7, W5, W3, E53, R27, G46) and adhered the house to a red rubber band (from an old midori), instead of a card stock belly band. That way it’s a lot easier to put back on, once you pull it off.

Before assembling the card, I heat embossed the sentiment, from the same BB Hanging with My Gnomies set, in white on my 5 5/8″ x 4 5/16″ (14,3cm x 11cm) panel of Sour Apple Card Stock. I had previously inked it with Gumdrop Green and Sour Apple Premium Dye Ink.
