Holiday Cheer

Friday, December 16, 2016
Hi friends! It's Friday and I'm squeezing in one more card for the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. This one uses the limited time free digi from Verve.


I started with a soft sky base, stamping the stripey cup from Get Together randomly tone on tone and then filling in with the larger snowflake from Jolly Jingle.  Next I cut a panel of white at an angle and stamped randomly with the snowflake.  I wanted to fill in with the smaller snowflake from the set, but couldn't find it, so pulled out a snowflake from Holiday Treats to fill in.  I added a strip of foil washi across this panel and then lined each border with baker's twine.

The ornament portion is created by cutting the digi sentiment with the Vintage Oval Die. I then cut two more vintage ovals from black and offset just a little on the top and bottom for a makeshift mat.  Once they were all glued together, I punched a hole with my neglected Crop-a-dile and tied on some baker's twine.  I finished by coloring the digi cup image with Copic markers and hand cutting to pop up over the sentiment.  The Cuppa Joe die set actually fits this image, but I couldn't find mine on my chaotic desk, so did it the old fashioned way!


Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful start to the weekend!
