MFT Sketch #523 & The Card Concept #146

I found lots of inspiration this week, which led me to another challenge blog...The Card Concept! This is a new one for me but looks like a lot of fun! They do a photo inspiration challenge every 2 is the current challenge photo #146:

  I was inspired by the winter warmth theme, snowflakes and of course the hot drinks. I decided to pair this challenge with My Favorite Things current sketch challenge #523:

Here is the card I created using combining the 2 challenges:

I started by using MFT's Simple Snowflake background stamp (now retired) on white and red cardstock (pulling in the colors from the inspiration photo). I heat embossed with white on red cardstock, and stamped with red ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder on the white cardstock. I then cut these down into panels following the sketch.

I stamped the images from MFT's Sweater Weather in the Woods stamp set and colored them in with my Spectrum Noir Tri-blend markers. I then fussy cut them out. How adorable are these animals holding their coffee cups??!!

I stamped the sentiment using MFT's Hug in a Mug stamp set and fussy cut the sentiment strip, adhering it to some red cardstock to make it pop.

I then adhered the panel onto some black cardstock and then a standard A2 green card base (to tie in the colors of the sweaters).

I love how this card turned out - the inspiration photo with the sketch worked perfectly.

Thanks for looking!
Happy crafting x
