Coffee Sleigh

Another digi freebie offered at the Winter Coffee Lovers Hop for 2016 was this cute sleigh image from Stamplorations carrying a gift and cups of various coffee products. I just had to grab that and use it for a card design. And on the side bar is the badge telling you the dates of the hop in case you want to join in on the fun. Lots of great prizes and lots of freebies too!


First I printed out the sleigh image on white layering weight card stock and then colored in the image with Bic Mark-It markers. Next I made a mask to cover up the snowy areas and then sponged on some light blue dye ink for the sky. Using the Pine Tree stamp set from Altenew which is a two step process, I stamped the pine trees onto the scene. Then I die cut the scene out with the Memory Box Cross Stitched Frame Border die.


The sentiment is from the same Altenew Pine Trees set so I used that for the greeting in the snowy area. This scene was then added to a base card of red card stock. And, inside I added some white paper to which I can write a message or stamp another sentiment.

I will also be entering this into the Stamplorations Never Ending Anything Goes Challenge.


Well, I must say since I cannot do any baking as my freezer is full at the moment, that I have had so much fun making Christmas cards. I am hoping these will be a start of my stash for next season. Only thing I did was cover some pretzels with almond bark one day and maybe I will leave the cookies until the grandsons from Japan arrive to help me with them.

Thanks for all the lovely comments as well. I read each and every one of them.

God bless,
Verna
