Christmas Cabin

>> Wednesday, November 19, 2014

I'm a little behind this year, but I'm happy to report that I have another quick and fairly easy Christmas card under my belt!  The creation of this card was fueled by a nice, flavored cup of coffee, which seems to be one of my staples nowadays! The Arctic blast that we had blow through recently has caused nothing but warm and cozy thoughts in my stamping room--I refuse to let this kind of weather bring me down, or tolerate it so early in the season. I see it as the perfect excuse to stay in and stamp. What could be better?

The focal point of this card is the Christmas Village Cabin (212G). I masked it and then stamped the bare trees from the Christmas Village 4 in 1 Accessories #2 (210G) over top of it. I love the way the image turned out, especially once I colored it with Copic markers.  It really came to life and reminds me of the cabin friends of ours have, Up North, deep in the woods.  It gives me that warm and cozy feeling and because of this, I thought the Simple Joys of Christmas Greeting (957F) was the perfect pair for it.  For a little bling, I used Stickles to make the snow and roof tops glisten. This card was simply embellished--2 red brads, a tiny red bow, and a textured card front made this card complete! 

Thanks for stopping by!
Stay warm!

I love your cozy cabin, Jennifer! They're baking cookies in there - I can tell! The sentiment you chose is just perfect for your image. Great card!

Love this sentiment with this image. I agree with Samantha, they are baking cookies in there, keeping warm. Really like the use of glitter too!

Those trees in back of the house tell me it wasn't that easy :) But well worth the effort - definitely gives me the warm fuzzies!

Lovely holiday card with the perfect sentiment! I love the red card base (great pop of color!) and the snowy roof :)
