Joy ~ Love ~ Peace



Hello! I'm back with another Winter themed coffee card for the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!


I started this card by first picking my papers, not something I usually do! I just recently purchased the Perfectly Plaid Winter paper collection from Lawn Fawn and the blues and greys just spoke to me. I chose the diagonal plaid and ran it through the big shot with a Tim Holtz Simple Snowflake embossing folder. Sadly, it's hard to see in the picture but it really gives a great texture to the card. I then layered that embossed paper onto a piece of Smokey Shadow card stock from Papertrey Ink. I added some grey ribbon and adhered that whole panel onto a white card base and set that aside. I pulled out one of my favorite Kit of the Month's from Unity Stamp Co. called Unexpected Places and inked up the row of coffee cups. I then inked them up again and stamped them on the plaid paper. I fussy cut all the little coffee cup sleeves and glued them on... a little paper piecing fun! I grabbed another piece of Smokey Shadow card stock and die cut a scalloped edge on both sides. I cut that in half and adhered it to either side of my coffee cup focal piece. I then popped up the whole panel onto the card using dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from Unity's Comfort to Go on a strip of white card stock and fussy cut a banner. I adhered it to the card and then quickly tied a bow and adhered that, as well. I love how this turned out! I hope you do too!

Go check out the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog to play along!!

I'm also entering this card in the Tic Tac Toe Challenge 027. I was inspired by the elements ~ Ribbon, Patterned Paper, and Coffee or Tea. 



Thanks for stopping by!

See ya next time.
