Hey y'all! Finally managed to make a card with this awesome set I've had for a while just in time for the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! And while I was at it, I decided to enter another card for the Ice Challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
This is the inspiration board for the Ice Challenge. I entered my last card in the challenge, but the colors weren't quite right, so I decided to do another one.
GOJUS!!! I used some papers from the beautiful Tis The Season 6 x 6 paper pad from Bo Bunny and I used Blueprints #13 from My Favorite Things to cut most of the elements aside from the cup itself, for which I used the matching dies for the set. For the card base, I actually pulled out some retired SU! card stock, Bordering Blue, because it is the perfect match for these papers.
I decided to use the Light to Red Royal Ombre pad from Hero Arts to add some interest to the cup.
I embossed the greeting using Versamark and Hero Arts white EP on some Kraft Core from Tim Holtz.
I used the Juniper punch from Tim Holtz with more of the same Kraft Core cardstock. After that, I dipped into some retired stuff from SU! that I couldn't NOT use, including the cute felt snowflake and the tinsel string/yarn. I have linked up some similar products below...that tinsel string, in particular is so cool and was really hard to track down! I used a Doodlebug Sprinkle in the center of the felt snowflake.
I stamped the whip using Memento London Fog, and the holly sprig is Pinefeather from Papertreyink. I added some Xmas Red Stickles on the berries, and a couple of more silver Doodlebug Sprinkles are in the upper right corner to help complete the visual triangle.
I love how it turned out!
