Our Christmas Cards?

It is about that time of year when we start auditioning various ideas to be our Christmas card and I think this one has a pretty good chance of making the cut! Is it wrong to say I'm totally in love with how this came out?

I used the layout for this week's WMS Sketch Challenge and the colors over at the Color Throwdown to make this cozy little fireplace scene. If you look closely, I used my wood grain embossing plate on the brown card stock and hand cut it to make the little mantle. I used some tinsel and some vine ribbon for the wee garland and some felt for the flickering fire.
Supplies: Stamps - Sewing Box Christmas (WMS), DP - Jovial (Basic Gray), Ink - Basic Black (SU!), Cardstock - Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip (SU!), Wood Grain Embossing Plate/Vine Ribbon/Felt (PTI), Cuttlebug, Tinsel (my stash), Foam Squares

  5. I love this card, Jen! I debated about that DP and then put it back onto the shelf and now I'm thinking I should have bought it - LOVE the plaid! Those stockings hanging over the fireplace are so cute. And adding the garland is the perfect touch.
