Vintage White Christmas (by Jodie)

Hello everyone, today sees the second post from our Guest Design Team member Jodie. She has created another delightful card for your inspiration.

Jodie writes:

Good morning everyone, for my second project, I'm showing how to create another wonderful sample from the same stamp set. There is so much you can do with Chocolate Baroque stamps.
I am simply in love with these stamps. The gnomes remind me of a vintage white Christmas, which is unfortunately hard to come by here in Florida, USA, lol.

Stamps- A Tomte Christmas 
Ink- Versafine Vintage Sepia
Paper- A4 Luxury Smooth White Paper
Cosmic Shimmer PVA Glue
Alcohol ink markers
Embossing Powder- Seth Apter Vintage Beeswax
Ultra clear double sided Red Line Tape
Heat gun

First cut out a circle from the ivory cardstock measuring 3 1/4" (8.3cm) in diameter.
Next I inked up the gnome trio with Vintage Sepia, stamping them onto the circle.
Next colour in the image. I used alcohol ink markers, but you can certainly use any colouring medium you have on hand.
I then lightly inked the edge of the circle with Vintage Sepia. 

For the front of the card, I cut out a base mat measuring 4" x 5 1/4" (10.16cm x 13.36cm).
I then cut a piece of printed paper, measuring 2 5/8" x 5 1/4" (6.5cm x 13.3cm).
I matted this piece with the ivory cardstock measuring (7cm x 13.3cm).
I then put a strip of the Red Line tape in the middle of the printed strip, and sprinkled glitter onto it.
Next you will attach this piece to your mat, adding the image onto the centre. 

I then sprinkled the Seth Apter embossing powder in different areas, adding a little bit of glitter for sparkle. Your are going to heat the powder from underneath, since I didn't use anything to stick the powder to the card, if it gets heated from above, it would simply blow away.

I then stamped a saying onto the ivory cardstock, cutting it into a banner and attached it to the card.

Finally I cut a piece of cardstock for my card base, measuring 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" (13.97cm x 21.59cm). I folded it in half, then attached my card front.

Thank you for checking out my latest project and don't hesitate to hop on over to my blog at
Take care - Jodie


  1. Fabulous card Jodie, I love this stamp and you've coloured and designed your card beautifully, Kate x

  2. I love your fun gnomes dressed in their winter greens Jodie and they look great against the sepia tones of the wood panel type background with the distressed look too. x

  3. How cute card!!! Love the gnomes and the green matches so well with the neutral tones!

  4. So cute. I know they're the wrong colour but they do remind me of Smurfs :)
