Bowling Gnome

Good Morning all!
Has everyone got their Gnomes & Fairies CD's from 

La Pashe yet?
I've got mine & I'd like to share this card that I made with you!

It's a type of pop up card!
This little guy is called Bowling Gnome!
What a sweet & cheeky little smile he has!
This card base is 8x8 inch, with lot's of folds and it can stand up on it's own,

a side view to show the folds

but, it folds flat for posting! 
I found a tutorial for this type of card when I was doing a bit of blog hopping.
I thought I had bookmarked the page but it seems not. So, I'm sorry I can't share a link to it!
I will of course keep looking.
I decoupaged up the Gnome using Pinflair glue & popped the sentiment up for 
some added dimension. The only extra embellishments I've added are
 a couple of buttons threaded with a
little bit of recycled twine from a clothes tag.
Thanks for popping in! If you haven't already ordered a CD,
I wouldn't hang about! These guys are very popular!

The good news is, they will be on Create & Craft TV today 
Tuesday 10th March at 10am & 2pm

  1. What a super card Dawn - I think I can work out how it's done from the sideways-on shot, very effective and ideal in that it folds flat. Looking forward to seeing all our cards on the shows today - it's a brilliant CD and deserves to sell out fast!

  2. A fabulous card design Dawn, my hubby would love this card as he is mad about gnomes.
