Start with Coffee

Hi friends!  It's Friday and I'm back with another card I'm linking up to the Holiday Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.  I had a little time yesterday afternoon and felt like pulling out my 3 x 5 gelli plate for a little background fun.



I started by cutting the Double Snowflake Cut Ups from deli paper.  Then I rolled some peacock feathers and mowed lawn distress inks onto my gelli plate with a brayer, layed down the deli paper snowflake and made my monoprint.  Next I cut the panel down and matted with basic gray cardstock.

Using the Coffee set from Verve, I embossed the tall mug and steam in white on vellum, then hand cut, paper piecing the front of the cup with patterned paper.  I used the Coffee Word Die to cut a white and basic gray coffee word, then layered them together.  I embossed the start with portion of a stamp in silver, then hooked on with a mini library clip.  My side decor is some silver washi tape, taffeta ribbon, silver cording and glittery white jingle bells.
