snowflakes and coffee...


Coffee is welcome at ALL holidays!
The base card is kraft card stock.
On white card stock I stamped the cup from Stampin’ Up’s “Perfect Blend” using Distress Archival black soot ink.
On a piece of snowflakes and red patterned paper I stamped the cup again with the same ink.
I trimmed out the white cup and added the sleeve cut from the patterned paper.
These I glued to the card front as per the sketch.
With gold glitter paper I die cut the two snowflakes using two dies from Tim Holtz “Paper Snowflakes, Mini” set and glue dotted them to the front of the card.
To finish I stamped the verse from Stampin’ Up’s “Many Merry Messages” with the same ink.

This is a fun card. Very unexpected for a Spring/Summer Hop, but it sure got me craving a Gingerbread Latte. It will be (quite) a few months before those are back at Starbucks. But you got me thinking about one, nonetheless, with your gorgeous Christmas Coffee card. Thanks for sharing, and have a relaxing weekend.

Your fun winter card makes me thirsty for some peppermint mocha in my coffee....guess I'll have to wait a few months for that though! (smile!)

I like this simple design. The coffee cups pop out against the kraft. Thanks for joining in at 52CCT
