Merry-Coffee And Cards With Celeste And Deb

Hello and welcome to the January Coffee and Cards with Celeste and Deb! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and aren't covered up with too much snow. We got our first heavy snow of the season this past week. This month Deb and I chose to use a mood board as our starting point for our cards. I found this fun image on Pinterest and fell in love with the earthy colors and the snow! To create my card I started by layering a strip of mint and gold foil hearts patterned paper from the Crate Paper Main Squeeze 6x6 paper pad onto a piece of Simple Stories woodgrain paper. I then added a strip of gold glitter washi tape from American Crafts Make It Happen collection to the side for some added shine and interest. I mounted that panel to my A2 white card base. I then stamped the beautiful image from the Unity Stamp Company's February KOTM stamp set Being Who You are onto some white copic-friendly cardstock and colored it using coordinating colors to the mood board. I die cut the image using a pierced edge oval die from My Favorite Things and adhered it directly onto the card panel. To finish off this simple card I stamped the sentiment from the Unity Stamp Company's October KOTM stamp set All Winter Long using Versafine onyx black ink onto a white strip of paper and adhered it directly below the focal image. 
For my coffee selection this month I opted for a Starbuck's Cinnamon Shortbread latte.  And yes, it's as tasty as it sounds!
Thank you for stopping by my blog today and checking out this month's collaboration project. Now, be sure to pop on over to Deb's site and show her some blog love with a nice comment!
