Burning the Yule Log

     Two days left in the 30 Days of Christmas at Beccy's Place and the prompt today is the letter "Y."  I decided on a salute to the tradition of the Yule log (see Yule Log history HERE) and used the Hearth set from Beccy's Place.  This set is so versatile, having a wide variety of add-ons which can be used with the central fireplace.  It can be used for cards throughout the fall and winter seasons.


     This is a pre-colored image, printed and fussy cut with scissors.  The Yule log and flames are printed and hand-cut separately, then mounted on dimensional tape so that it stands out from the fireplace interior.  The cat and his ball of yarn are also separate, fussy cut, and mounted on dimensional dots.

     The dark green dp serves as the wallpaper in the room, and everything is mounted onto a green card base.  I used green satin ribbon from Crafty Ribbons and hand tied a bow made from plaid ribbon.  I didn't add a lot of embellishment beyond the ribbon and bow because I really wanted to maintain the feel of being inside a room, next to the fireplace.

     The sentiment was cut with a die from Die-Versions.

Gorgeous card NC, very homey and warm. Love the addition of the little kitten on his soft bed, he definitely has the choicest place in the house! The die cut sentiment is fabulous and I like the green ribbon and bow you added. Well done.
Cheers,
Beccy
