Celebrate the Season

The Impression Obsession challenge is Season's Greetings.  I combined it with our new theme at Words 2 Scrap By where we want you to make a project inspired by a line or two in the poem "Twas the Night Before Christmas."  I used one of my all-time favorite IO stamps, Cabin (H1830) along with the lovely IO sentiment (D8307) & kept it very simple. This is where we'd love to be on Christmas Eve--a cabin in the snowy woods.  Have to admit I wouldn't like the drive to get there though--haha. I stamped the image on kraft in Memento Espresso Truffle & sprayed with Glimmer Mist.  
The cream card front is embossed with a Sizzix Stampin' Up folder.  I think there's enough interest & texture that I didn't use foam tape, so this is mail friendly--yah! I'm also entering at SSS Work It Wednesday & SSS Wednesday. Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog during this very busy season.
