TCC146 Warmth of the Season

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  How is your week going?!  I hope okay!  We are back at The Card Concept where you tell us what "style" your card-making is!  Here's our beautiful, warm, cozy prompt for this week:


Mmmm, that looks delicious!  Makes me want to go have a latte, or cappuccino, or hot chocolate, or something!  And I had so many ideas!  Here's what I ended up with:


For my Clean and Layered card, I chose to use the Nordic theme, red tones and that pretty mug as my inspiration!  I stamped the mug from the retired Scentsational Season set in Riding Hood Red and after die-cutting it out, mounted it on an oval panel that was embossed with a Tim Holtz EF.  The sentiment is from the retired Hearts Come Home set, backed with some burlap ribbon and embellished with some wee little brown sequins:


The papers are from Simple Stories, and I did emboss two little rows of snowflakes to accent the vertical piece.  My sketch is from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown:


I hope you'll start the new year off with us and share something inspired by our photo!  Just be sure to tell us what "style" you used...you can find all the styles listed on the Card Concept blog!  See you there!  And thanks for stopping in today!

I do believe I have neglected showing Eden in her Christmas finery, and since it sort of matches today's card, here she is:


Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I'm lovin' the sweet Nordic theme, and all the red white and brown! The ribbons of snowflakes are the perfect touch to break up the patterns. Warm and delicious! And Eden is just adorable in her holiday finery.

Great card! I still love Scentsational Seasons. It has such cute images.
Eden looks lovely and very proud of her Christmas attire! She's a pretty girl! Give her a kiss on the nose for me.
