Hello, and happy Sunday! Deb and I are back for our final collaboration for 2019. This month we decided to use this mood board as our starting point for inspiration for our cards. I was out Christmas shopping this past weekend when I happened upon an adorable collection of washi tapes from American Crafts called Snow and Cocoa. They were marked down and literally sitting on the counter to be put back on the shelf at my local T.J. Maxx. Ummm, cute AND on sale? Yes please! So, I decided to create my own patterned paper using just the washi tape and let it really take center stage. I put each one at a diagonal angle and butted them right up against each other. I then cut the panel down to 1/4" shorter than a standard A2 size card and popped it up on foam tape onto the card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Close To My Heart Merriest Christmas Holiday stamp set onto some white cardstock using Versamark ink and heat set it using gold embossing powder from Ranger. I used a pierced edge circle die from My Favorite Things to cut it into a focal panel. I made another small panel using more of the washi tape and die cut it using a slightly larger circle die from Spellbinders. I popped the sentiment up off of the card using some foam squares from Scrapbook adhesives. To finish off my card I added some pink sequins that I picked up at my local Tuesday Morning. I love how adorably cute this card turned out!
As for my coffee selection I opted for a Jack Frost latte and a red velvet cupcake that I treated myself to while out shopping. The Jack Frost latte is a white chocolate and peppermint latte and yes, it was mighty tasty! Now be sure to pop on over to Deb's blog and check out how she was inspired by our mood board! Merry Christmas to all of you and I wish you all a healthy, happy New Year!
