The Gypsy File is available for this card by email. Just copy and paste this email to your personal email account and let me know which Gypsy file that you are wanting.

This card is for my dear husband his birthday is Friday…. I got this one in under the wire…when I saw the garden gnomes I knew I would make him a card with one of them… he loves them… when we go to Hobby Lobby in the spring he always looks a them… so I think he will just love this card… I sure hope so!!

Freshly Picked
Frames (3) cut @ w 4.91 x h 3.50.. I cut two plain and one with the mushroom…the mushroom that cut out I used on the inside of the card… to fill the space I just hand cut a square and placed behind the mushroom…then added its little pieces.. I did the same thing to fill in the spaces on the mushroom on the inside of the card… on the Cricut I would cut these @ 3 ½ inches.
Gnome and it’s layers cut @ h 3.89.. Set the height and the width will be right… the shadow cut is welded to the hole in the one of the frame pieces so you will have a place to adhere the gnome to the square….. on the Cricut I would cute these @ 3 3/4 inches.
* I wanted to draw the face on so I use the hide contour feature to hid the face features on the layer with the hands and legs… and on the layer with the belt and pants I used the hide contour feature to hide the face.
Create A Critter
Happy Birthday cut @ w 1.99 x h 1.00... This cut out beautifully at that size!!.. On the Cricut I would cut this at 1 inch. (I am loving this cut!!)
Card base is 4 ¼ x 5 ½, Frame Piece 4 x 5... Sentiment piece 2 ¾ x 4 inside only….. I cut all of these with my paper trimmer.

I love sharing the instructions and files for my cards but I do ask that if you use my instructions or files to recreate my card and place it on your blog or somebody else’s blog that you give me the credit for the original design. I also ask that you do not submit my designs for publication, profit or for any contest. Thank you!

OH Jeannie,
I think that Robby will absolutely love this card. I love how detailed the little gnome is. hahaha I have to wonder if RObby's eyebrow is the same way.

As for gnomes...they are good luck and to get one for a birthday...hahaha now only if he came with a pot of gold

Love the colors!
