Saturday Coffee Cafe - Merry In Pink

Happy Saturday and welcome to the CafĂ©!   With three days til Christmas, we’re serving up a special holiday brew – c’mon and grab a cup!

While traditional Christmas colors of red and green make up most of my holiday cards, I do love non-traditional colors too like lime green, brown and PINK!

For my card, I layered lime green cardstock to the card base.  For the background, I embossed white cardstock using Stampin Up’s Cable Knit embossing folder.  These cups from My Favorite Things Hot Cocoa Cups dies were used to cut pretty pattern paper and the marshmallows/whipped cream were cut from glitter cardstock.  This sweet, simple deer die is from My Favorite Things Deer Love.  The pink ‘merry’ word die is from Lawn Fawn and the white embossed sentiment is from My Favorite Things Secret Santa.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:
