Nordic Style

Hey there,
here's my attempt at a Nordic style card for

 I used some of my smaller stamps to create a repeat pattern, and
my first thought was to simply add this stamped panel to the card base,
but it looked so flat like that. 

In the end, I stamped my sentiment onto the card base and  then cut my patterned piece in 2
and added it top and bottom.
For a little more interest I re-stamped the stockings and mugs, fussy cut them,
(shame there's no die for these little pieces)
and attached them with foam pads.

Stamps - Wplus9 'Heartfelt Holidays' /  Papermania 'Tweet' / Stampendous 'Yule Penguins'
Sentiment Stamp - Pink Gem Designs
Memento Ink - Rose Bud  / Bahama Blue

It definitely has a cozy feel to it! I know just what you mean about it seeming too flat - I always struggle with that too. so glad you shared your beautiful card with us this week at 52CCT!
