Baby, It's Cold Outside

Our last challenge for the year 2017 at Double D Challenges
is being hosted by Team Darlene
with this beautiful mood board and the theme
"Baby It's Cold Outside".



I had a plan for this card!
A plan that went totally elsewhere as I was working on it...
sometimes that happens...
this poor card, I dropped my finished front piece onto my card base.....
so it's sort of 'wonky'.....ugh...it happens...it will have to go to a non card maker...lol!
I could redo, but I'm not, I am not perfect, we all know that!!
However, if you knew me, you would know that these sort of things drive me bonkers....BUT,
my New Year's resolution is to 'let things go...relax, enjoy more...it's NOT life threatening...take a deep breath!!

My inspiration came from the bottom left corner
the nice cup of what I am assuming is cocoa...yum!!


I die cut a negative snowflake and turned this card into a shaker.
I added 'snow' for the 'cold outside' effect.
The cute little mug is a stamp and die from Paper Sweeties.
I added an IO die cut deer onto the mug.
The greeting is also from the same Paper Sweeties stamp set.

I added the crystal clear sequins, of course they picked up a pink color in
the taking of the picture, they reflect everything...lol!

Make sure and visit Double D for all the gorgeous inspiration....
we have a fabulous prize as always!!

Have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS All!!!

WOW! You are SO GOOD at making these shaker cards and this one is AMAZING! I would have never thought to use the snowflake but it looks amazing! Love the cup with the deer (good eye catching that on the mood board). Gorgeous card Diane and I like your New Years Resolution! Life is too short ... don't sweat the small stuff!! HUGS & Merry Christmas!

I love how you added the deer to the cocoa mug! This is the sweetest card. And a big snowflake shaker -- so pretty! Yes, just let it go. Easier said than done, but we have to try. Merry Christmas, Diane!

How Clever of you to use the negative cut from the die for your shaker!
This turned out so darn cute and I love the pretty blue and the gold deer.
