Exchange card featuring a cute gnome (digital), an embossed and sanded background and a round punchie greeting

For my second exchange card I used the same gnome image from Birdie Brown.   I started with a large orange envelope and created a brown card to fit inside.  I embossed a variety of white core card stock pieces using three different embossing folders and then started gluing them together using regular tape on the back side until I had a piece big enough to cover my card.  I trimmed it small enough to leave a bit of a border all the way around.  I sanded the piece to better reveal the embossed patterns and then adhered it to my card front.  I watercoloured the gnome image (laser printed Birdie Brown digital) and layered it onto navy cardstock before adhering it to my card using 3D foam tape.  I found the round punchie greeting in my stash.  It is a laser printed digital from Netty's Cards which I punched with a round 1 3/4" circle punch (SU).  I watercoloured it to coordinate with my card and adhered it with 3D foam tape as well.  Great fall card!!             Therese
