Happy Galentine’s Day Like Gnome Other

I love to make Valentine’s Day Cards! For today’s cards, I used a stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog that I just didn’t get to play with enough before it retired, Gnome For the Holidays. I really like the play on words with the sentiments in this set and the gnome is just stinkin’ cute! Who says you can’t turn a Christmas gnome into a Valentine’s Day one?!

I was inspired by Julie Gilson’s Christmas card. All I had to do was change the designer series paper from Christmas to Valentine’s and cover up the ornament hanging from the gnome’s hat. I found the perfect size heart in the Stitched Be Mine Dies. (*You can view the complete list of supplies I used in the product list below.)  The hearts and squiggly paper is from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper. This pack has lots of fun designs!

The inside sentiment I used is from the Hearts & Kisses Stamp Set. It is perfect for a friend’s valentine card.

I like the other sentiments in this set too and know I will use them throughout the year.

What could be better than a cute gnome valentine? A “gnomie” to go with it of course! I have several friends who like and collect gnomes so I sent a little gift with their card. They can put it with their Christmas ornaments and add it to their tree next year. I added a little tag with the same sentiment I used on the front of their card.

The Stampin’ Up! Gusseted Cellophane Bags were the perfect size to wrap up these gnomes for gift giving. I added a Real Red Sheer Ribbon bow and my Valentine’s were complete!
