Gnome Greeting Card

Wander back a few days and read the first couple of paragraphs of the post I had on reusing craft designs. Here, is yet another way to use our little gnome. Follow the basic directions there except use the pattern found HERE.

The biggest difference, is you will be placing the pattern on a fold. When you fold the watercolor paper, use a ruler to help make the crease sharp.

Place the pattern on the fold, trace the pattern and cut out, cutting through the front and back together.



Follow the directions for the bookmark to transfer markings, outlining and coloring with watercolor pencils. Then paint with water.

Come up with a cute little note on the inside, then, wah lah, a card any child… nah… any person, would love to get 🙂

Wouldn’t these make lovely holiday cards? I can see it now… “Oh there’s no place like Gnome for the holidays!”

Can you think of any other “gnomey” type messages that would be great in these cards?

EDIT: I wanted to include this comment by one of our readers. I thought it was brilliant and wanted to make sure no one missed it!

Love these! My little girl and I made the bookmarks the other day:). Thank u so much! I think these little cards would make great “page huggers” bookmarks. Just put two magnets on the inside and they “hug” the page u need to mark. Thank u so much for sharing! We will be making these cards for a birthday party we r going to tomorrow:)

    1. Love the page hugger suggestion. I'm actually going to clip and past the comment so others are sure to see it. Thanks 🙂

  2. Cute, cute, cute! I love it! And I know my book loving girls would, too. They like to ‘chapter’ their books by dog earing the pages.

  3. Since no one else has, I’ll state the obvious,

    GNOME, SWEET, GNOME

    and he/she certain is!

  4. Oh Kimara! This is the cutest handmade card I’ve seen. Thank you for sharing!

  5. What a wonderful idea! We enjoyed making the bookmarks this week and look forward to making the cards and page huggies next week. I have a little stash of magnets that came in mail solicitations that I’ve been wanting to put to good use – thanks again for sharing these great ideas!
