These are the three Halloween Female Gnome Cards I promised yesterday when I posted the female gnomes. They are so cute and I made each one specific to that character. If you want to see the Halloween male gnome card, it is from last week and is here.
Each card opens a different way and is easy to make. They all fit in an A7 envelope for mailing. They are so simple kids can even help assemble them. All of them but the first one have a gnome pun too! Who doesn’t love a good (or bad) gnome pun?
You will need:
I did all these female gnome cards in traditional Halloween and Fall colors. Only the base card of the witch card needs to be two sides. But the base cards all need to be at least 65 lb weight paper to hold up the card. Patterns work well on these cards as long as you don’t use too many of them. Just make sure the pen shows up on the first and third one. There is no writing on the witch card. All the writing is cut out of the overlay or an image itself on that card.
Cutting the Female Gnome cards
Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing. I used a silver or gold gel pen depending on the card. Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut? You can see the trick here. I used several different fonts and as long as you don’t change them they will write fine.
Some of the pieces are small and thin so be careful not to lose them or tear them when taking them off the mat.
Assembling the Female Gnome Cards
I would just cut one card at a time. First assemble the gnomes. They each are included with their card design. You can see how to do that on the female gnome page.
Each card assembles slightly different, but they all follow the same basic technique. Basically once they are cut out and the gnome is assembled, then attach the embellishments to the overlays. The witch card has two score lines the others have one each. Before assembling the female gnome cards, re-crease these fold lines. Then attach the overlays. Finally attach the embellishments to the card bases. You can follow the pictures and it is really easy.
And your Female Gnome Cards for Halloween are done! Remember they fit in A7 envelopes for mailing.
