Warm Winter Wishes

Now that I have a blog, I'm able to enter the exciting world of blog hops and craft challenges. 
This month, the challenge over at Scrapbook Boutique is to use this picture of a cupcake as inspiration to create a card, scrapbook layout or off the page project.  The theme for the project should be "winter" and the colours brown, turquoise and white is to be used.

When I saw the picture, I thought to myself, all that lonely little cupcake needs is a nice cup of coffee to go with it... and that's how my project started.

I created this take away coffee card and envelope from a file in the Christmas Cheer SVGCuts kit. I replaced the original caption with "Warm Winter Wishes" which I designed in Silhouette Studio DE and then cut out using my Cameo. 
The paper I used is from BoBunny's Snowfall collection - and I just love it!  It's all glittery and sparkly and happens to be the perfect colour combination for the challenge.

For embellishments, I cut out a snowflake from the SVGCuts kit and added some Stardust Stickles for bling.  I then used my 1" circle punch to punch out a couple of elements from the paper for the centres of the snowflakes.  Finally, I cut out a couple of elements for the envelope, added a brad and some twine and finished it off by inking the edges with Brushed Corduroy Distress ink from Ranger for a final touch.
I hope you like it - I sure had fun making it!

Thanks for stopping by!
