Cocoa Time

Hi and welcome to Merry Monday.  This week, it's my turn to host the challenge and I've gone for an easy theme, given that Christmas is only 10 days away!  My challenge is to create a winter-themed Christmas card.  Easy, right?


For my card, I decided to create a little scene using some Purple Onion stamps from the Stacey Yacula collection.  



I stamped three separate images onto some X-pressit cardstock and colored them with Copics.  For the record, my little cabin is sinking into the snow on purpose (actually, I didn't realise I'd stamped it crooked until I was coloring it at the very end).

The sentiment comes from PTI's Two Feet Deep set and suited this little scene perfectly.  I kept the layout really simple and just layered the panel onto a 5 1/4" square Early Espresso cardbase.



Thanks for visiting.  The design team have done a great job with my challenge and I hope that you can squeeze in a few minutes to make a card to link up to the gallery.



Products used:

Stamps:  Snow Cabin, Louis, Cocoa Stand (Purple Onion), Two Feet Deep (PTI)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock:  X-pressit, Early Espresso
Accessories:  Copics

Cheers
Karren
