How To Create Gnome Piecing and Cupcake Birthday Card Full Tutorial

Hello dear crafty friends!
Have I got a fun card for YOU on this Terrific Tuesdie!  Today I am sharing a card featuring more dies from the New Sweet Treats Release by Cottage Cutz!! Last week I shared this cute little gnome piecing I created with some leftover pieces. This week I will show you what I used and share the cute little card he is on!
Here's a look at my completed card. I started with a horizontal top folding card base. I used some white cardstock for that. I then cut a piece of some colorfully cute diagonal striped patterned paper I had in my stash. I cut it to 4x5.25 for the mat. 

Here's the photo I shared last week of the little Gnome I made with some leftover pieces.

So here are the pieces I used to create this cute little fella. They are all pieces from various dies in this "SAHWEEET" release! 

So here's a closer look at the pieces I used for his arms (the top pieces). I cut off the bottom part and used that for his "hand". I also cut off that extra piece around the edge and it made a little lip at the bottom to look like a slight cuff.

Here are the pieces that I used for his "head". I added the side pieces to fill in the sides for the "hair". I did cut off the extra  once his beard was in place.

Here is what his head pieces look like. I loosely layered them onto each other to give you the idea.

Here is his body along with his two "shoes". I just cut the extra lip off the bottoms.

Here's another look at little Mr. Gnome. I mounted him onto a stitched rectangle scalloped mat with a yellow cardstock mat. I put some of those super cute cupcakes along side. I added some glaze to that tiny cherry, but it doesn't really show on the photo. I also added some stickles to the top cupcake and the centers of the flowers on the bottom cupcake.

Here's a closer look at the large cupcake and the Happy Birthday sentiment. I did add some foam tape underneath them all to give them just a little lift. I also added some cinnamon stickles to the brown swirls. It didn't show up too well in the photo but the swirls are nice and sparkly.

Here is the new sweet treats release.

The Dies I used to create this project:

The jar piece on the right is what I used for the gnomes arms

I used this cupcake and the top for the gnomes head and beard. I also used the top right "pink" piece for his mustache.

I used this cupcake top piece for his hat and the longer swirl piece for his "hair". I did also use this complete cupcake to decorate my card.

I used the sundae cups top ruffled piece (just above the heart) for the Gnome's hat brim.

I used the brown frosting on the cupcake on the top right for the gnomes hat top. I also used some of the cupcakes from this die to decorate my card.

Well that about covers it for today! Until the next time, have a wonderfully craft-die day!
