Ho Ho Ho-Coffee And Cards With Celeste And Deb


I cannot believe it's been a month since I posted on my blog. It's been a busy holiday season, but it's time to get back at it. Debra and I decided to try our hand at a sketch and I found this great one on Pinterest. I still have all of my Christmas card making supplies out, so I thought it would be fun to start building this year's stash! I created my card by layering some great patterned papers from the Pebbles Welcome Christmas 6x6 paper pad onto some cherry cobbler cardstock from Stampin' UP following the sketch exactly as shown. I stamped the adorable image and sentiment from the Close To My Heart Santa mini stamp set onto some white Copic-friendly cardstock using Gina K designs black ink. I colored the image using my alcohol markers and then die cut it into a circle panel using a pierced edge circle die from My Favorite Things. I then cut a larger circle from more cherry cobbler cardstock using a Spellbinders circle die and layered the two together and mounted it onto my card. To complete my card I added some pretty red sequins from my stash on either side of the sentiment and some Glossy Accents to Santa's nose. 
For my coffee I opted for a nice hot cup of butterscotch rum roast and an awesome coffee buzz chocolate treat! Now be sure to head over to Debra's blog to see what fun she created with our sketch this month!
