The Card Concept Challenge #187 - Winter Snow or Winter Coca

Hi my stampy friends!

It's time for a new challenge here at the Card Concept!

And it is a DOUBLE challenge!

You can choose one or both Inspiration boards to create a paper project!

I chose the Winter Cocoa because I fell in love with that adorable gingerbread man 
popping out of the hot cocoa!

 I created a Clean & Layered style card

~Clean lines
~Lots of Layers
~Designer papers, embossing
~Clean & Fresh looking
~Some colored images
~White space

Here is my card:

I die cut the gingerbread man with some dies by ScrapDiva Designs. This is the cutest little gingerbread man! I used Crumb Cake by Stampin Up card stock. I sponged around the edges to give him some depth, and I used a pink marker to color in his cheeks! The cookie sheet is also included in this die set. I cut the top layer with white card stock and the bottom of the tray with silver card stock. The cup was stamped with Lumberjack Plaid  Oxide ink and then die cut it.

For the background, I dry embossed brown card stock with a snowflake embossing folder and then die cut it with a scallop background die.

I hope that I have inspired you to join our challenge!
