I’m winding down on making Christmas cards, but I wanted to play along with this week’s Paper Players’ challenge. I also wanted to try using Foam Adhesive Sheets with the new Alphabet Dies in the January-April 2023 Catalog. I’m happy to report, they worked perfectly!
I began by cutting Evening Evergreen Cardstock, 1 3/4″ X 1 1/4″, and the same size Foam Adhesive Sheet, to accommodate the two letters, “H” and “O”. After sticking the cardstock to one side of the Foam Adhesive Sheet, I placed the dies on top of the cardstock, and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Then, I ran it through a second time, upside down, to make sure it was a clean cut.
Next, I carefully removed the letters, keeping the backing intact, until it was time to stick them to the card front. The Foam Adhesive Sheets give the letters dimension, and they stick without adding glue!
Now, all I needed was someone to say, “HO HO HO.” I thought the Gnomes Dies would make a cute Santa, so I cut his beard and nose from Basic White Cardstock, and his hat from Regals 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper in Real Red. Then, I colored his nose with an Ivory Stampin’ Blend, glued his hat and nose to his beard, and attached him with Dimensionals.
The background is Basic White Cardstock, embossed with the Whimsical Woodland Embossing Folder. This layer is glued to a Real Red card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. The Whimsical Woodland Embossing Folder is a “last chance” item, on sale for $4.00. You can see all of the “last chance” items below.
The Gnomes Dies are carrying over, and are available now. The Alphabet Dies will be available January 5, 2023, along with all of the new products in the January-April 2023 catalog.
I was inspired by The Paper Players.

Su, I Love that big, bold, black Ho Ho Ho! Your gnome Santa is the best and the embossed background is so festive and adds so much texture. So happy you joined us at The Paper Players this week!
Thank you, Claire! I’m so glad you like it!
When is a gnome not a gnome? When it’s a cute Santa of course! Love the big bold sentiment too Su. Thanks for playing with us over at The Paper Players this week!
Your comment made me laugh! Thanks, Joanne!
Such a cute little gnomey Santa and how fun to see those new alphabet dies in use! They are on my wishlist for sure! Thanks for playing with my challenge this week at the Players!
Thank you, LeAnne! You’ll love the Alphabet Dies, and easy to use with the Foam Adhesive Sheets.
This is a darling card and I am stealing it for some of my Christmas cards, thank you for sharing.
Thank you, Sherlie! So happy to inspire!
