Since I was pretty bummed about not having a release and really wanted something new to play with, I designed this fun digi set that's available as a free download from Verve through 12/25/15. Merry Christmas! I hope you enjoy it and link me up so I can come check out your cards!
Next up, I printed the digis on white card stock and cut the cocoa cup with a stitched circle die. I masked off the whip cream and sponged antique linen around the mug and also on the two sentiments for a warm glow. I then took another cocoa image and added glossy glaze to the snowflake and did a little resist with stormy sky and faded jeans inks. I fussy cut just the mug and pieced it onto my stitched circle, topping the whipped cream with frosted lace stickles. I added shabby distressed edges to all my layers.
I'm completely hooked on using frantage embossing powder right now. I embossed three sizes of wood veneer snowflakes and scattered them around. I finished by swiping a Versamark pad down the edge and heat embossing the frantage powder to add a snowy look to the edge.
Well, that's all for me. Hope you have a fabulous start to your weekend!
