Hello, Sunshine Gnome Step Card

Happy Saturday!

My husband had to order something from Amazon this week, and since we have a PRIME membership (free shipping and get it in 2 days), I thought I'd go ahead and add some paper into the order. :) Shhh.... And I got it today!

Have I mentioned lately that I LOVE my Cameo? 
Today I'm making a card using this cut from the Silhouette Online Store for a Step Card.

This file ($0.99) comes with:
** The card base and score lines for easy folding
**Fence to fit
**House and all the house detail cuts
** trees
** paper cuts sized to fit each of the sections (I love that they think to do that for us)

Since I had room on my mat, and I love fence cuts, I went ahead and put CTMH Lagoon cardstock on the mat for the card base, the yellow pattern paper for the card matting (from Echo park "Sweet Girl" stack), and some white cardstock at the bottom for some fence cuts to add to my stash of pre-cuts. 

Cool, huh?

Recently, I took advantage of a $1.00 sale going on at Lettering Delights. 
They have tons of SVG cut files on sale for $1.00 and each file has multiple cuts in the set! How cool is that?! That's my kind of shopping.
One of the $1.00 SVG cut sets I bought was "Good Luck Gnomes." 
Look at all you get for $1.00! WOW!
I just checked, and the $1 sale is still going on right now. Not sure when it will end, but I think it's very soon.

Here are my cuts I thought I might use from the Gnome set.

Voila! Adorable! I didn't end up using the rabbit on this card, but he's in my stash now, so I'll grab him to use for another time. All solid papers are from CTMH.

 Ready to see how it turned out? 

Sentiment matting is cut using Stampin' Up "Modern Label" punch. (Love this punch!)
Sentiment paper and ink are both CTMH "Cranberry."
Cardz TV Stamps "Simply Said" set for the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today, guys!

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday and weekend!

It's a great little scene, Janis, and I love the LD images! I think the sale is through April. I always cut multiples of everything so I have a stash that I can use to quickly put something together when I need to.

Thanks for joining us at Cut it Up Challenges!
