Scentsational Season and a Sneak Peek

Isn't this a great, simple holiday card? I love it, if I do say so myself! I love the non-traditional  holiday colors, and think this would be an especially good masculine holiday card.

The color inspiration was provided by Dynamic Duos. I love working with monochromatic neutrals. I should do it more often!

These colors gave me an opportunity to use my new Early Espresso Embossing Powder, and are perfect for a coffee cup, which is from the Scentsational Season Stamp Set. Matching Framelits (yay!) are called Holiday Collection Framelits. The strip of DSP is from the Festival of Prints Stack. All of these products will be available in just a couple of days, on August 1, in the new Stampin' Up Holiday Catalog.

Love this one, Sandy. A perfect holiday card of welcoming hot cocoa, which (to me) make the colors exactly right!

I had an idea to use the Espresso embossing powder for the coffee in the cup. Scratch and sniff
