It’s not a card – it is not a home decor item – it’s desk decor. A little bit of color to brighten up the office during the winter.
All of the machine cuts on this desk decor item are from Curt Jensen @ Provo Craft. The gnome and her mushroom home are from a new digital Cricut cartridge release titled “Gnomes and Mushrooms” and the butterflies are from Campin’ Critters.
The blades are grass are hand cut and the sentiment, from Paper Trey Ink, is a 1.75 inch circle punch.
The base of this project measures 8×8 and it stands due to a Tim Holtz easel attached to the back of the base – and can I just say, it is a fabulous thing. My sister gave me a few pre-cut stands for Christmas, and now I absolutely need to buy this die.
For those of you that love the details (and you know who you are) here you go:
The Gnome: Cut at 4.5 inches, her mouth and eyes were colored with Copics and given a nice coat of Glossy Accents. The gnome is attached via an Action Wobble so it is an interactive desk decor item. The butterfly extending from her hat and hand are attached via a thin black covered copper wire that I found in the jewelery section at the craft store. When she wobbles, her butterflies accompany her.
Her Mushroom Home: Cut at 5.5 inches, the windows and door window were highlighted with Copics and also got that fabulous Glossy Accent coat.
Butterfly: From the frog2 cut (layer1 and layer2) and cut at 2.25 inches.
This was part of my continuing voyage of discovery using Cricut Craft Room, and I have to admit it is growing on me.
