The Card Concept: Cuppa Cocoa or Coffee?


Good Wednesday morning! It's time for a new card challenge with The Card Concept,
and Julie has inspired us with winter warmth!

Cuppa Cocoa or Coffee? 

Definitely inspired by the wintery red and white cups.

I started my card with a stenciled background from The Greetery, and used their
Cozy Cup set for my main focal point.

Cozy Cup Coaster was cut from some cork, and BotaniCuts Pine Bough encircle 
my cup.

Hope you're inspired to pick a style and play along. Our challenges are for 2 weeks,
plenty of time to do a card or 3!

The Card Concept: Fresh New Year


Welcome back to the Card Concept, and a Fresh New Year!

Complete with color swatches, our photo inspiration is both elegant and a bit sassy!
Black & White & Pink and a soft gold? What could be better for a fresh new start
to a brand new year!

I didn't stray far from the inspiration photo, keeping the b/w bold stripes, and and the bright
pink forefront on my card. My birthday bouquet is set in a glass vase, cut from polka dot 

I chose the Rose Flurries 3-D Die from Altenew, and paired it with The Greetery's
Inside Out Berry Branch.

I call my design choice, Clean and Layered, my favorite of all the card designs.
Hope you are inspired to play along, our challenges run for 2 weeks, plenty of time
to add a card or 2 to our lineup! We love seeing how you use the inspiration photo and
design styles.

Blessings for a wonderful, craft filled New Year!
