I had these gnomes from Stamping Bella colored up a few weeks ago but didn’t quite know what to do with them. Then the theme SNAP came up and with that the idea of using my film strip die from Marianne.
Then I thought maybe I could fit the gnomes into the filmstrip. They were too big, but I went on with it anyway, allowing their bodies to go outside of the film strip. I needed something to ground them, so I used a die cut stitched frame and black corrugated paper. I stamped a Christmas greeting in Norwegian.

This card is for:
Inkspirational - #168 Snap
My Time to Craft - #378 Christmas in August
Rudolph's Day - August
Christmas at Sweet Stampin' - Anything Goes Christmas
