Warm & Cozy Christmas


When I saw the inspiration from The Paper Players I knew what I wanted to do.  I then used the 'sketch' from Less is More and was just going to use the thermos and sentiment.... but you know me... I like my layers so this is no longer a 'less is more' it is a more is more! LOL

I pulled out a number of different items in my stash, and my favorite projects are those that use a mix of products.  I like pulling a theme together  with a variety of items.

First I started with the Warm & Cozy collection by Pebbles - yes believe it or not after the many projects I have done with it, I still have some left ;)  Like I said, I wanted a thermos, si I used my Cozy Christmas stamp and die from PTI.

From there I decided I needed some snow so I die cut the Memory Box snow frame and then thought I need a sled.... you know how it goes! LOL  I used my Memory Box Large Sled die.   My card was coming along nicely but then I wanted some mittens hanging on the sled so I used my Mugs & Mittens set from Concord & 9th (which must be retired.... I can't find it anywhere).  As a final touch.  I added some snowflakes from the Snowflake Trio by Reverse Confetti. The thermos, mittens and sentiment (cut with a SU Banner die) are mounted on foam squares.

Wonderful wintery card, Laurel. All the goodies that evoke having a blast in the snow, along with the warmth of hot cocoa afterwards. That sled looks amazing!

I love the snowflakes and fun details on your card Laurel - that thermos will be perfect for a warming cup of cocoa after some energetic sledging! Thanks for sharing with us over at The Paper Players this week!
